Old proverb says, ” tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today”, so if you’re looking for an ultimate winter experience, better start planning earlier. If you’re looking to ski, snowboard or simply après-ski, new winter programs at Four Seasons Resort and Residences Vail are certain to pique the interest of wanderlust explorers.
With more than 5,000 acres of breathtaking terrain, Vail Mountain is a world-renowned ski destination and a must for every avid skier to experience. Hitting the slopes has never been more alluring – especially when there’s a Four Seasons chef-curated picnic to look forward to. Guests are given an option to order a picnic from the Resort’s culinary team to bring up the mountain or even have Executive Chef Marcus Stewart cooked signature Flame steaks or shuck oysters atop the mountain.
Vail is known for its seven legendary back bowls. From Sun Down and Sun Up bowls to the Siberia, Tea Cup and China bowls, and the Inner and Outer Mongolia bowls, these back bowls span 3,000 acres of Vail Mountain’s backside. Guests will explore these bowls with a local celebrity such as Pete Seibert, the son of one of the founders of Vail, and take a break to refuel with a chef-curated picnic lunch at Blue Sky Basin.
Guests may opt for driving to nearby Lake Dillon in one of the Resort’s luxurious Mercedes Benz SUV house cars, stop off in Breckenridge for a Four Seasons Concierge-recommended lunch or après hot spot, or bring along a Four Seasons picnic complete with a thermos of signature Haute Chocolate. Exclusively for Four Seasons guests, the Resort’s full-service Ski Concierge is located in a three-story, chalet-style building near the base of Gondola One. The expert team knows Vail Mountain runs inside and out.
Every time it snows 6 or more inches, Four Seasons Resort and Residences Vail’s culinary team will pass out complimentary and house-made powdered donuts and white hot chocolate to guests of the Resort.
