We have spent many Christmas Holidays in Vail. In past years, we have followed the herd and rented in Vail Village. This year we decided to stay in the Vail Cascade area and could not be happier with our decision.
The condo was immaculate, warm and cozy, with more living space that be found at twice the price in the Village. While lift lines are typically a morning mess at the bottom of the mountain, we never waited a minute to get up on the mountain via the Cascade lift. Once up on the hill, the lines were never a problem. When we needed the shuttle, the wait was never more than 5 minutes. We opted to rent a car at the airport, which made grocery shopping and nightly dining in the Village easy. The condo has a heated garage and free nightly parking in town made the trips simple and fast.
The staff at Coldstream are friendly and very responsive. We needed laundry detergent one night and a bottle was delivered to our door in less than 10 minutes. The staff at Venture Sports was also fantastic and always right there to help with equipment valet.
All in all, a great choice and a great vacation. While I initially had apprehensions about not staying directly in Vail Village, I now prefer having selective access to the Village, with the stress free comfort of being around the corner at Cascade and a little distance from the crowds. See you next year - Dan
