Vail - Blue Sky Basin Tour... anyone done it?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have an opportunity to ski a few bonus days next week in CO and am considering taking the tour of Blue Sky Basin at Vail.  Has anyone done this tour?  If so, what kind of terrain should I expect on the tour?   I can ski East Coast groomers and easy moguls (the type that form in soft snow/high-traffic trails througout the day)

 

Thanks!

Check a trail map

 

Stuff off Pete's is tame enough   Some very nice mellow tree skiing waiting for you there!

 

Lover's, down to Iron mask is steep at first,  but easy to see.  The bumps build lower down.

To the west is great fun,  but that run down the gully is annoying.

Vail offers a free tour of Blue Sky Basin on Tuesdays and Fridays... have you been on said tour?  Just curious to know which trails it might cover.  I've spent lots of time looking at the map since I found out I was going :)

Can't help there.

 

A "tour" is how you get to BSB ;-)

 

It takes time.  and if there is snow in the back bowls,  it's a waste to go further.....until tomorrow.
