    If you love Vail, you will love this book.

    I first fell in love with Vail when I was 12 and later lived in Vail for two years. Although there are other mountains that are better for specific types of sking, Vail and Beaver Creek has something for everyone. Having enjoyed these mountains and gotten to kow the intimately, this book has special meaning. One of the best parts is the first chapter where Pete Seibert describes his first trek up the un-named mountain. Hidden from valley view was a skiers paradise, including what is now mid-Vail and the back bowls. The book continues by providing a history of Mr. Seibert and the process by which the #1 ski resort in the world was built. Even if you don't like Vail but love to ski, it's an interesting story. A great read to get excited about an upcoming trip or to use in reflection of previous travels.

    A must have for the skiing enthusiast!

    I think I was one of the first to get my hands on this book from Barnes and Nobles. I spent all night going through it. The book is filled with historical photos, color shots from the early days and gives a wonderful description of the trials and tribulations of following ones dream to build the ultimate ski mountain. A little luck and a lot of dedication went into developing vail and this book really brings it home. Anyone who has skied Vail will appreciate this beautifully put together book!
