Vail encourages you to be proactive about your safety and the safety of those around you. Check out our safety page to find out how you can do your part to promote safety on the slopes.

Complimentary Mountain Ski/Snowboard Tours

During the winter season, Community Guest Service volunteers provide complimentary tours of Vail Mountain for any guest whose ability level is intermediate or above.

General Mountain Tours leave from the Game Creek Desk adjacent to the top of the Eagle Bahn Gondola and from the top of Gondola One at the Mid Vail Ski School desk each morning promptly at 10:30 a.m. It is highly recommended to get to either location by 10:15 as each participant will be required to sign a liability release form before the tour. Each tour is considered a “Familiarization Tour” of the mountain and should last about 2 hours.

The Blue Sky Basin tour begins at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, from Henry’s Hut across from Patrol Headquarters (PHQ) at the top of Chair 4. Please arrive at Henry’s Hut by 10:45 to sign a release form. This tour is recommended for High level intermediate or above skiers or riders.

50+ Ski With Us tours are designed for skiers age 50 or older. These tours meet at 9:15 a.m. on Monday mornings at Gondoly's Pizza seating area at the top of the Eagle Bahn Goldola. Tours depart at 9:30 sharp and liability release forms must be signed before leaving. This is an all day tour that can go anywhere on Vail Mountain with a stop for lunch, usually at Two Elk. Four guides provide four skiing tours from advanced intermediate to expert levels of skiing. Join the 50+ tour for part of the day or for the full day and experience the epic skiing on Vail Mountain.
