Villa vacation rentals provide travelers with relaxed and luxurious accommodations that allow them to breathe in the local atmosphere in comfort and style. If you would prefer that the atmosphere include fresh powder, tall pine trees and a number of challenging slopes, then you may want to look into luxury rentals in Vail, Colorado. The area is well known for its impeccable ski slopes, and those of you who are looking for an ideal destination to work on your skiing have a number of options to choose from.
For beginners, the best place to hone your skills is Golden Peak and Sourdough Lift. Home to a number of green slopes, these areas offer a number of safe but exciting runs that will help children and first-timers work on their skills before tackling some of the more challenging slopes in the area. It should be noted that unlike many other areas, Vail actually has beginner runs at the top of the mountain, meaning that beginners can still enjoy the scenery of this beautiful region.
While beginners may have only a few options, intermediate skiers essentially have their run of the park. There are nearly countless trails that offer a diverse array of experiences. Standouts for steady skiers include the runs beneath the Eagle Bahn Gondola, the trails near the Avanti Express chair and the challenging Riva Ridge - which actually boasts a few black-rated sections that less experienced skiers may want to steer clear of.
Advanced skiers too have a wealth of options that will leave you tired and ready to relax long before you head back to your luxury vacation rentals. The Genghis Kahn course is said to be an intimidating, yet accessible run that will challenge even the most skilled skiers. Of course, this pales in comparison to the park's double black diamond trails known colloquially as Blue Ox, Highline and Rogers Run.
The area is possibly best known for its Black Bowls, a 2,734-acre swath of land that is considered to be among the finest skiing terrain in the world. Located on the front side of the mountain, this is Vail's claim to fame - and with the steady terrain, smooth ride and scenic views, it's easy to see why.
Boasting nearly 5,300 skiable acres and almost 200 separate trails, you will find Vail to be a skier's paradise – and with stylish luxury vacation rentals as accommodations, it may be hard to leave the area once your vacation is up.
