Vail is celebrating its sixtieth anniversary this season.

That’s sixty years of powder days, back bowl skiing, ice bars, and new experiences.

No matter how many times you’ve skied these slopes, this season is all about celebrating then, now, and forever.

And as a part of the celebrations, Vail will be hosting the National Brotherhood of Skiers for their annual summit in February.

So, go ahead … plan your next visit to Vail. And help them celebrate what’s shaping up to be a legendary season.
