  • Love your review. I always have trouble finding the perfect accommodation when skiing - the hotel is either too far away from everything or not of great quality.

  • What a great article
    I have always wanted to stay at a ski-in ski-out lodge right on the ski mountain but I always thought it was too expensive and not really worth it. Do you think its worth the cost?

    • Hi Vicki,
      I certainly understand your concern, a slopeside, ski-in and ski-out lodge right on Vail mountain is not cheap. I think if you have the money and can comfortably afford it and love skiing or being right on the mountain in the middle of all that breathtaking scenery then yes, it is worth it. You can find deals that make it more affordable by booking in January or during mid-week instead of the weekends but it really is something that should be on your "Bucket List"

  • Wow! So many great places to choose from. Vail looks so beautiful! I love how you have all of the ski lodges that are right next to the ski slopes. What a wonderful convenience to have a slopeside hotel! In your opinion, which one is closest to the bunny slopes? When is the best time of year to visit if you are not an expert skier?

    • Hi Colleen,
      Thank you for your comment. For beginners, the bunny hill is believe it or not, at the top of the mountain at Practice Parkway which is located at about 10,000 feet, so even beginners can take in the beautiful views. The Practice Parkway is accessed by the Eagle Bahn Gondola so I would choose a hotel at the base of Lionshead like Lion Square Lodge or Arrrabelle at Vail Square
      Vail is very family-friendly and anytime during the winter season is a great time to come whether you are a beginner or a seasoned skier. Come on out and have some fun on the mountain

    • Hello Furkan
      Thank you for your comment. Yes the Hotel Talisa is an exceptional ski-in, ski-out resort with extraordinary amenities. the hotel has has 3 on-site dining options; a fine-dining restaurant, a fireside lounge that serves food and a market for gourmet to-go foods. With all of these options I am sure they offer some gluten-free alternatives.
