1. All-day ski
Grab your gear from the ski valet and get on the mountain! Your guide showed you the ropes yesterday, so now it’s your turn to explore Vail’s variety of terrain with your buddies. Try out the Back Bowls or take on tree skiing in Northwoods. Cross your fingers for fresh snow, drink plenty of water and eat a big breakfast – you’ll be skiing hard today. Track your vertical feet with the EpicMix App and earn badges as you make your way around the mountain. You can even race your buddies with EpicMix Race, a course that’s been run by Lindsey Vonn.
2. Après in Vail
Nothing beats drinking your first après sip after a gratifying day on the slopes. Post up at either Vendetta’s or Los Amigos, two of the liveliest and most popular après spots in town. Mingle with Vail ski patrollers at Vendetta’s or watch people finish their last run of the day on Los Amigos’ deck while sipping on some ice-cold beer.
3. Dinner in Vail
You can stay at Vendetta’s for some pizza or walk over to Pepi’s for authentic Austrian fare. Pepi’s has been family owned and operated since 1964, serving up traditional items such as Wienerschnitzel, as well as Colorado-inspired dishes, including rack of lamb.
4. Explore Vail’s nightlife
You’re already on Bridge Street, which is primed for barhopping. Take the party to one or many of the nearby options, from the 10th Mountain Whiskey & Spirit Company to The George and countless others. Bonus: Vail’s free in-town bus runs until closing time, allowing you to imbibe into the wee hours of the morning.
