The Weekend/Holiday Getaway

Vail Ski Weekend Getaway Tips

Read below for expert advice on how to make the most of your Vail Colorado weekend or holiday getaway and how to maximize your time in the Vail Valley!

  • Get on the mountain at 8:30am or 9am (when the lifts open) to avoid the crowds

  • Ride to the Back Bowls and Blue Sky Basin first and ski the front side of Vail Mountain in the afternoon

  • Call our concierge to help arrange your dinner reservations, activities and lift tickets. Book these early to ensure availability and best pricing! (click here to contact our concierge!)

  • Call our concierge to arrange for grocery delivery to your Vail condo prior to arrival (click here to contact our concierge!)

  • Stay an extra day to avoid long lines at the airport and increased traffic on the roads

  • Enjoy an early lunch (before 11am) or a late lunch (after 1pm) to avoid the crowds at the on-mountain restaurants

  • Start your day on the Born Free Chair (chair 8) instead of the Eagle-Bahn Gondola

  • Check both sides of the lift lines - you will typically find shorter lines on skiers right of Chair 2 (Avanti), skiers right of Chair 7 (Game Creek) and skiers left of Chair 21 (Orient Express)

  • Try a day at Beaver Creek - your lift ticket is valid at both Vail and Beaver Creek and the Beav' is only a short bus ride away
