The Back Bowls of Vail are my favourite area to ski. This area offers more challenging skiing (mostly black diamonds) and is even larger than the front side. It is made up of four "bowls": Sun Up, Sun Down, China and Siberia. It also has much less tree coverage, so one could ski practically anywhere. The scenery is quite amazing. Favourite runs include Over Yonder, Shangri-La and Chopstix. From the bottom of China Bowl, one can access Blue Sky Basin, which is another challenging area.
