The Back Bowls and Blue Sky Basin at Vail

POST #    2384

One of the best things about Vail is its back bowls. While the front side of Vail is more than enough mountain for me, it's always nice to take a trip to the other side to change things up. In addition to the seven back bowls, Vail has Blue Sky Basin (its newest area which opened to controversy in 2000), which offers some of the most amazing views in the whole ski area. I believe the top photo is from a lift in one of the back bowls and the other two photos are from Grand Review in Blue Sky Basin. I think Grand Review is my favorite trail at Vail. It offers stunning views and you can ski in the amongst trees without too big a risk of actually hitting one.

So beautiful. And I bet it's warmer there than here.
