Vail Jan 2011

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm looking at heading to Vail in January (first time to Vail) and am trying to nail down our accomodations.  I'm looking into the Ptarmigan Townhomes, one bus stop from the cascade lift.  Does anyone out there have any insight on the area?  Any insight is greatly appreciated.

Glad to hear you're visiting my home town!  I can recommend our hotel (The Vail Cascade Resort) or some of the condos we rent out...let me know if I can help!

Happy to answer any other questions, too.  I was a ski instructor for 18 years, still live full time in Vail (lots of "locals" live further down-valley now....

A couple of years ago we stayed at a really cheap condo (I can't for the life of me remember the name now) a short walk from the Cascade base area.  The Cascade lift beats the heck out of trying to get up the mountain from Lionshead or the village and you don't have to pay $25 to park.  The only disadvantage (actually an advantage in some people's mind) is that you aren't right in the Village or Lionshead, but only a short bus ride or long walk away.  You will have a great time, and don't forget to spend at least one day at Beaver Creek.
