(See my other post from our 2019 Road Trip) – While in Vail, CO we took the ski lift up to the top of 11,570 foot Vail Mountain.
The mountain top does not look quite so high in these photos, but Vail itself is at 8,120 feet. There were several people riding up to the mountain peak. Some had bicycles to ride the trails, others were going just for the view.
We saw several people either riding or hiking down the trails on our short ride to the top.
The top of Vail Mountain is host to a very nice facility. It includes restaurants and shops.
There are facilities for the adventurous and those young at heart. Not only were there these rope courses, but there were zip lines and a tobogin ride.
There were nice views from the top of the mountain You could easily see some of the other ski slopes.
You could make out some of Vail spread out in the valley below the mountain. We thought that the cost of the ski lift was well worth it. We wish we had waited to have lunch at the top of the mountain. We will remember that for our next visit.
