Complimentary Winter Mountain Ski/Snowboard Tours

During the winter season, Community Guest Service volunteers provide complimentary tours of Vail Mountain for any guest whose ability level is intermediate or above.

General Mountain Tours are offered during the winter season and will leave from the Game Creek Desk adjacent to the top of the Eagle Bahn Gondola and from the top of Gondola One at the Mid Vail Ski School desk each morning promptly at 10:30 a.m. It is highly recommended to get to either location by 10:15 as each participant will be required to sign a liability release form before the tour. Each tour is considered a “Familiarization Tour” of the mountain and should last about 2 hours.

Please arrive at Henry’s Hut by 10:45 to sign a release form. This tour is recommended for High-level intermediate or above skiers or riders.
