The Rockies!

Vail is one of the best ski resorts in the States. The skiable terrain is the largest in the USA and the town itself is beautiful with plenty to offer to skiers and non-skiers alike. Restaurants are superb and some hotels are excellent. Vail is also the closest in the US to a (superior) European/Alpine skiing experience.

The town is located 2 hours west of Denver and is accessible from the Denver airport, or its own airport (Eagle) about 40 minutes west of Vail.
