Amazing ski and snowboarding resort. The mountain and all of its runs are immense. It is crazy busy, so plan to wait in lines and plan to have to dodge others wherever you are riding. They have detailed maps strategically placed at the tops of most main runs so you can plan your route down the mountain if needed. Seems like people from all over the world come out here to enjoy some of the best skiing in the world!
Can the consumer benefit from monopolies? Come experience Vail and see for yourself! The staff are so friendly because they are so well taken care of. Free bus service, parking and abundance of on slope options provide the consumer with the very best of the best! Yes, thank you Vail for your shining beacon representing a true free market of capitalism. When given only one option, the consumers value always rises as seen and felt in every Vail establishment. Despite popular opinion, it turns out narcissists really can lead well.
