The Difference is Vast Pete Burnett, Overseas Operations Manager

"Vail offers some of the best skiing and snow I have ever experienced; even at the end of the day we were finding fresh tracks through the trees. If groomed pistes are more your thing, then you'll be pretty happy here as Vail offers the most groomed terrain in the world! No visit to Vail would be complete without cooking up a BBQ at Belles Camp - a very unique experience."

A licensed daycare facility, the Small World Play School is run by the ski school and is located in the Golden Peak base area; it is the only nursery on the mountain. Quality childcare is available in a warm, fun and friendly environment for young guests aged between 2 months, and 6 years of age.

Parents should provide disposable nappies/pull-ups, a change of clothing, clothes suitable for outdoor play, and shoes to wear inside. Special sleep toys or blankets are very welcome! If your child has any particular dietary need, please provide the necessary foods, including formula.

The nursery is open daily during the winter season, from 8am until 4pm.Reservations are recommended.
