quickest ski-in/ski-out in for EGE?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi Bears!

We have a flight departing EGE (edit: Eagle County Regional Airport) at 2:45 Sunday after Thanksgiving. We were originally booked to return to Boston on Saturday, but AA has changed the schedule of their flights and now it is impossible for us to return on Saturday. Thus, we need to check out of our timeshare in Avon on Saturday and book a room for that night somewhere else. If we wanted to ski Sunday morning at Vail or BC, and get to EGE for our 2:45 flight, which property has the quickest ski-in / ski-out access?

Thanks! and bring on the snow!!!!
Kim

Yes, sorry, EGE refers to the Eagle County Regional Airport. I should have been clear instead of just using the code. The airport is about 35 miles west of Vail on I-70.

I've stayed a Saturday night at the Holiday Inn in West Vail - cheap for Vail valley but expensive for anywhere else. Saturday night in Vail is a good thing. Riverwalk in Edwards generally inexpensive, a bit quieter and a short drive to BC. There are a couple of good restaurants in Edwards as well.

Something in Arrowhead or Bachelors Gulch at Beaver Creek would be the closest ski in/out. But I am not sure if any of that will be open at
Thanksgiving?

Even if you stay in Vail I think you could still ski till noon. It's not like EGE is all that busy.

If you're flying from EGE, why not stay/ski near there at one of the Aspen resorts?

As far as quickness out of the resort BC and Vail probably tie if you do pay parking at BC. BC is a bit closer to the airport so I'd do that.

To follow up on restaurants in Edwards, I have to give my very hearty endorsement to a restaurant called Dish. They have fabulous food, fabulous service and the atmosphere can't be beat in my mind.

Why would that be closer? It's almost 2 hours from Aspen to Eagle. Maybe you're thinking of the Aspen airport?

No worries! I just didn't want to hear the screaming when they skied Aspen and showed up at the wrong airport or really late.
