Improve your skiing and your insider knowledge with a guided mountain tour
Think you're too cool for school? Vail Resorts protects your rep with a new instruction program that feels less like class, more like recess.

Let us be abundantly clear: No one is too good or too old for ski school. A lesson with a professional ski instructor will make you a better skier. But we get it: When you only get a few precious weeks or days on snow, you're loath to spend them in a restrictive class setting, following a guy in a uniform down trails of his choosing, not yours.

New substitute for tire chains may help truckers -- and ski commuters

Let's face it: Getting to Vail is often a pain. The drive to the Colorado resort from Denver International can be snowy, slow and crowded. On the one hand you've got overconfident locals in all-wheel-drives zipping from lane to lane; on the other you've got just-off-the-plane out-of-staters not wanting to crash the rental.

Vail Resorts to Offer Pass Insurance
Accidents, unemployment among the reasons for refunds

Let's say you bought a season pass, but you lost your job before the season even started. Are you screwed? Not if you opted for Vail Resorts' Pass Insurance program. For an extra $20 for adult, teen or senior passes (or $10 for children's passes), you'd be able to recover at least some, if not all, of your investment. Break a leg before the season even starts? Full refund. Get pregnant after opening day? Partial refund. Called up for duty two weeks after opening day? Partial refund.
