Best Ski Run in Vail — Best of Vail Valley 2019

1. Riva Ridge

2. Genghis Khan

3. Cloud 9

Vail’s most popular ski run is also its longest.

Riva Ridge, with its steep pitch and top-to-bottom path, measures in a just over 4 miles.

The run was named by members of the 10th Mountain Division, many of whom were instrumental in founding Vail, for the decisive battle they fought in in the Italian Apennines during World War II.

This steep run varies between blue and black pitches, and the steepest section has been lovingly named “Tourist Trap” by former Vail Mayor Rod Slifer.
