Activity: Last day of skiing at Vail, Colorado, United States

We had heavy snow in the valley again and woke up to white. All the drought in the earlier winter caused a lot of snow dump later in the season.

The snow was quite heavy today. It was much like the “Whistler West Coast Concrete” we were used to. We played around with the go pro to come up with some videos for the day.

It was a tiring day being the last of it for all of us. We had another lunch in the Two Elks Lodge along with a relaxing afternoon.

This was followed by a quiet evening at home; the last night chez Marriott for quite some time.

My Thoughts on Vail Resorts:

Vail was pretty good to us as a ski area. The Marriott Nights and Flights package was a great way to get to experience the resort at a lessor cost. Notwithstanding the high cost of everything, the Epic Pass also reduced a lot of the spend towards this family holiday. If you’re planning a family ski holidays, make sure you plan in advance to save some dollars as the potential for savings is there.
