The 2020/21 season is off to a great start with new terrain open on the upper mountain.
Did a quick video of the ski conditions on Vail Mountain on December 23, 2015.
Considering a different ski area?
Here's a review of a 2001 trip to our sister city of St. Moritz.
In January, 2009, we were off to Snowbird, Solitude, and Deer Valley in Utah.

You've connected to a specialized site based in the Vail Valley.
Skiers do not need to use the ski reservation system for Vail and its sister resorts for the 2021/22 season as it has been discontinued.
Sometimes we fly fish a bit in the cooler months too. Here's our fishing update page with other reports going back into the 90s as well.

Looking over at the Eiger on the trip to Grindelwald in 2004.
Boot Fitting Technology -Then and Now
Just for fun compare the custom Strolz boot fitting done In Lech, Austria in 2008 in the upper video -
We were adrift at sea in 2014 on the way to Polynesia.
For 2015 the fall trip was to Dubai and Mauritius - both very interesting .
Bucket list stuff - W Hotel in Barcelona and Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi - July 2017.
In May, 2018, we visited Lisbon, and then hiked part of the Portuguese Camino de Santiago.
Now for some fishing trips
June of 2017's trip was to Kamalame Cay in the Bahamas.
2019 started out with an interesting trip to Christmas Island in the South Pacific.Lousy lodging but fun fishing. Another trip there in January, 2020.
2021 started well with a January visit to Atmosphere Kanifushi Resortt in the Maldives.
- to the latest technological advance below - an Ertlrenz fitting done in Vail in 2012.
Both operations produced great fitting boots - albeit at fairly tasty prices.(Here's a note about this product in March of 2019. Apparently there are some servicing problems with Germany about the Ertlrenz boots. Stay tuned.)
