Vail Resorts steps up the options

VAIL, Colo. -- For clients who can't decide between the convenience of on-slope accommodations or the fun of being in a ski village, Vail Resorts has designed a package to please both.

This season, visitors can choose from stays at the Lodge at Vail or the Game Creek Chalet.

Both properties, which are in the village and on the mountaintop, respectively, are owned and marketed by Vail Resorts.

Packages include:

  • Skiers Escape. Available through April 21, the plan includes three nights' accommodations at the Lodge at Vail, full breakfast daily and a two-day lift ticket per person.
  • Offered Sundays through Fridays, the package is priced from $119 per person, per night, in low season; $189, high season. Low season runs through Dec. 20 and from April 8 to 21; high season is from Jan. 2 to April 7.

    Additional nights are available at $109 per person, including a one-day lift ticket.

  • Vail Top to Bottom. This five-night package includes accommodations at the Lodge at Vail in a two-bedroom town house for two or three nights.
  • Participants stay the remainder of the nights at Game Creek Chalet, located steps from the slopes.

    The package includes breakfast daily, a four-day lift ticket per person and two half-day ski instructional sessions.

    Also included are three dinner vouchers at the Wildflower or Cucina Rustica, one lunch at Cucina Rustica and welcome amenities at both properties.

    The Vail Top to Bottom package is valid for four to eight people and is available from Dec. 15 to April 7.
