Ill be up living in Vail starting in july. My wife, son and I board and plan. To do it every day next season. I already got our epic passes for 20011/2012. Feel free to hit us up next season. My 11 year old can teach you a thing or two. Lol. My wife and I are very intermediate riders. He is advanced and strangely likes showing people the ropes. If your comfortable on blue runs and can go black too then feel free to tag along with us.
