Vail in USA Resort Guide

History - Vail was discovered by a one Earl Eaton (not of the aristocracy , Earl was his first name) in the late 1950s . It opended for winter sports in 1962 . In 1997 all three resorts ( that is Vail , Breckenbridge and Aspen ) merged together and became Vail resorts , this includes Keystone.  All these resorts plus Beaver Creek are available on one Ski Pass but they are not linked so you will need to drive in order to take advantage of this . There is a new lift now : that is the Imperial Express Superchair which takes you up to peak 8 at 12840 feet , this then gives you access to a lot of terrain near Peak 7 as well . Vail Resorts is one of the worlds highest users of renewable energy , all five resorts use wind power . Keystone in fact has all its lifts and lights powered by wind energy : this is the largest resort of all for night skiing . Vail has 1500 acres of slopes and almost 200 runs and 34 lifts
