The resort of Vail, situated in North West Colorado, is the largest of all the United States ski resorts that are based on any single mountain. It lies within the White River National Forest, which contains the Flat Tops Wilderness, an area of over 200,000 of preserved wilderness. Vail is therefore rich in spectacular natural beauty and is a hugely popular place for ski holidays.

There are so many exciting runs to choose from that it can be difficult to decide which route to take as you ski down the Front-Side, Blue Sky Basin and the Back Bowls of Vail Mountain. But whichever route you take, make sure you take full advantage of the après-ski social scene: as well as a plethora of bars, clubs and restaurants, Vail boasts Snow Daze, a week long party of concerts and events in December.
For experienced skiers who like their ski holiday to be challenging, you can test yourself in the Seven Wonders of Vail contest, an attempt to ski the seven miles of Vail's notoriously difficult Seven Back Bowls stretch all in one day. This forms part of the Winter Teva Mountain Games in February.
Travelling to and from Vail is easy if you book with Expedia. A flight to Denver is followed by transport in a shuttle service. Alternatively, you can use Expedia to arrange car hire and drive yourself to the resort.
