Best Ski Trail
Vail was founded by members of the 10th Mountain Division, the skiing soldiers who distinguished themselves during World War II. Among their epic battles was Riva Ridge. Warfare is pretty simple: The enemy holds the high ground. Your commanding officers, who will do very little of the actual dying, order you to storm the mountain and run the enemy off the high ground. Some of the warriors who didn’t die named the ski run Riva Ridge in honor of those who did. Take a moment to remember that before you start hammering moguls.
