Ski with a soldier as you learn about the history of Vail. Ever wonder about the story behind a trail name at Vail? Like how Riva Ridge is named after a key battle that the 10th Mountain Division won during World War II, or how Vail founders Pete Seibert and Earl Eaton dropped into Sun Up Bowl for the first time and after commenting that it took forever to hike back up the mountain, decided to later name that trail Forever? To pay homage to Vail’s legacy, historical signs have been placed across the mountain, allowing guests to embark on a self-guided historical tour of the mountain. Space limited based on a first come basis. No reservations.
