Vail Colorado Ski Resort March 2001
This is one great place to do some winter skiing in the United States. The scenery is beautiful, the skiing is spectacular, the food is extraordinary, and the air is refreshing! If you ski, save up some money and go!
The image included here is from the top of the Avanti lift #2 on the front side of the mountain. The surface right in front, is the start of the meadows (green) trail that takes the skier down to the Mid-Vail area. The trails in the distance are Christmas, Swingsville and perhaps a little bit of Cappuccino. Elevation where this image was taken is on the plus side of 10,000 feet.
This resort including the mountain, and village areas have evolved and improved by leaps and bounds since March of 2001. Check it out if you can find a way to afford it and if you ski! Budget $3,500 per adult – 7 days – from New England (mileage may vary).
