Vail village is bigger with more stuff around..... Only one lift unless you walk to golden peak.... My wife is not a great border and prefers coming down on the VV side.

lions head has the gondola which is nice on cold mornings.... There are some nice beginner runs that will take a newb 45 minutes to come down and a super newb 60 minutes.... The final decent in to lions head is apparently intimidating to people cause.... I don't know why really.... I guess it's a steeper green run than goes over a big ass bridge back to chair 8 and the gondola

My son and I always go to lions head to start and finish the day.....
