Vail Mountain is our favorite in the state, with 5289 skiable acres, 193 trails, three terrain parks and (ahem) the highest lift-ticket prices on the continent. If you’re a Colorado ski virgin, it’s worth paying the extra bucks to pop your cherry here – especially on a blue-sky fresh-powder day. Multiday tickets are good at four other resorts (Beaver Creek, Breck, Keystone and A-Basin).

With over 30 lifts in operation it can be tough to find your way around, so spend some time studying the trail map. The two high-speed gondolas will get you out of the base areas: Gondola One (heated and wi-fi enabled) serves Vail Village; Eagle Bahn serves Lionshead. The main lift-ticket office is located just northwest of Gondola One.
