Vail is proud to boast the largest and most sophisticated grooming operation of it's kind. We groom more acres each night than most resorts' total acreage, over 1,200 acres per night.
Our grooming operation is the largest of its kind and is dedicated to using the best technology, training, and efficiency in order for us to create the best grooming in the world, available to you each morning. Historically, we have averaged between 7,000-9,000 acres per week of grooming, and in recent years we have increased that number up to 9,000-11,000 acres per week.
Most of the groomed terrain at Vail is on the front side of the mountain, but portions of the Back Bowls are groomed nightly, allowing beginner to intermediate skiers to experience the famous Back Bowls and Blue Sky Basin.
Be sure to check our daily grooming report above, as we groom some select runs weekly, some every night and others are reserved for special surprise and delights and are only groomed occasionally as a treat for our guests.
