Top of chair two thinking that there is a wild fire just below Holy Cross so I get the picture (above). It turns out it was an all-day controlled burn cleaning dead trees infected with pine beetle. Rode chair 12, Vista Bahn, Chair 3, Chair 4, Chair 2 and the gondola.

Although most of the open runs on the mountain are in great condition, we need snow. Good pictures of current conditions in Sundown Bowl and interior shots of The 10th. Food, service, atmosphere and interior were all great. I think they need to get at least a Wi-Fi connection as in most of the front and bar AT&T out of range with no wireless options. May be nice to have a break from your phone too?
Chair 12 — Vista Bahn — Mid Vail – Gondola — Magic Carpet — Chair 12
Took my 4 year old girl out for a run or two on chair 12 but ended up doing a 6mile+ round trip on the front of Vail Mountain. Such a good feeling when a child gets to an age/ability where they can stop, slow down and turn on their own. Needs help on icy spots and steeps but a full mountain skier now which is a relief.
