Set within a picturesque landscape just steps from the Eagle Bahn Gondola, Vail Marriott Mountain Resort offers modern comfort in a stunning travel destination. Unwind and rebalance in elegantly appointed accommodations with upscale amenities. Delight your palate with distinctive cuisine, including bountiful breakfasts, delectable dinner menus, and homemade pizza delivery service. Ski some of Colorado's most celebrated slopes and enjoy world-class dining and entertainment in popular Lionshead Village.

Energize your day and restore your body with onsite amenities like the heated pool, or spoil yourself at the luxurious on-site spa.

The hotel's newly renovated state-of-the-art fitness center, accessible 24 hours a day with your room key, features FitnessOnDemand digital programming, Peloton stationary bikes, a Life Fitness Cardio Suite, strength equipment and stretching/recovery aids.

Our rooms offer an extensive list of amenities including coffee makers and mini-fridges.  Complimentary WiFi is available in our rooms and throughout the hotel.  Add $1,560 for the Single Supplement if you want a room to yourself.

EPIC Passes Required:  You must obtain an Epic Pass to ski on the trip.  This is due to the September 2020 announcement that Vail Resorts will be restricting COVID-19 related slope access at all of their resorts.  Guaranteed ski time will be limited solely to Epic Pass holders.  Pass options, which include reasonably priced Epic Day Passes,* may be purchased on the Vail Resorts website

Skiing Reservations Required:  Each skier will be required to reserve their ski days online, in advance.  The reservation window for pass holders runs from November 6 through December 7.  Some guidance on making your reservations is provided in Vail Skiing Reservation Procedure.

*Note:  As of 11/2/2020, the cost of the 5/6 day (non-holiday) Epic Day Passes was $506/$589.  This is substantially less than the group lift tickets that we had initially offered with the trip; those were priced at $660/$759 (adults) and $652/$751 (seniors).

Air Schedule NOTE:  As of 9/11/2020, the trip is being sold only as a ground package, i.e., without the round-trip air from Dulles to Denver.  You must secure your own air transportation for the trip.  Contact trip leader to discuss options.  The trip leader and most others will be traveling on the United Airlines flight itinerary shown in the table below; this will dictate the schedule for our ground transportation from the airport to the resort & return.
