There's no question that Vail has some of the best skiing in the country. The legendary back bowls magnified by some serious snow totals, make this resort a powder day dream. To Serving as a worthy compliment to their Homeric skiing, Vail's village is hard to top. With every twist and turn a village that you thought was going to end unleashes a new surprise in the form of another tasty and fun restaurant and/or bar. It's this combination of top notch skiing and fun apres ski that has Vail consistently delivering on their epic guarantee and makes it a hopping place all ski season long.
This was certainly the case last weekend long when they hosted their 27th annual Taste of Vail. This après ski event to end all après ski events featured food and wine from the area's best chefs and sommeliers and was only enhanced by the surprise powder days old man winter bestowed upon them over the course of the event. Although I was not personally at the event, my friends over at Luxury Ski Trips were and definitely made the most of it. You can check out all that they had to say about their Taste of Vail experience here.
If you missed the Taste of Vail, don't worry. Like I said, the place is hopping all ski season long and the party continues this weekend with their Spring Back to Vail event. This 14th annual event kicks off today, and will take you through a jam packed weekend that includes free concerts featuring the band MAGIC, the World Pond Skimming Championships, a Bud Light sponsored bags tournament (that's code for cornhole) and, of course, après ski parties out the wazoo. This weekend long event is really what spring skiing is all about...get in some early day turns until those legs feel like jello and then party your tails off with bbq's and beers until you can do it all again the next day. For a full list of activities, tickets, lodging information and an event schedule head over to Spring Back to Vail. Don't miss out, as they like to say at Vail, it will be epic.
