Default Vail Boarding

sup all,

my wife are I are headed to vail next week for a little boarding trip.

looks like we got very lucky with the snows comin' in.

Anyone from the area that has any advice to offer on shops they work at or are good to check out?

fooding / drinking establishments that we should look into?

or just info in general, i'd love to hear it.

we are both pretty new to boarding and ski resort traveling, so any local info we can gather hopefully helps us look a tiny bit less clueless as we enjoy our trip.

can't wait to get up there on the snow.

Nope. we're usually just sporting our undies as we just fall into the snow from our cadilac with horns on the hood and tumbleweeds in the back seat.

I hope that the closest thing we do to the "stereotypical" hated texas snowbird is say things like "y'all" and "fixin' to"

We're new, but this is our 3rd boarding trip and are pretty happy with the performance of our gear. We tried to do lots of research and took some advice from people one the forums before getting fully geared up, and its worked ok for us.

youll never want to go anywhere else lol... vail is HUGE! get in the back bowls and rreally take advantage of it tho!

as far as restaurants/bars/shopping/ etc you have tons of options in lionhead and vail village!

vail is a bit expensive as far as lodging and all that but it is def worth it!

you wont regret it, let us know how it went!
