Ski Resort Life Epic Dream Job: Stop 15 – Vail, Colo.

Jackson Lebsack wraps up the trip of a lifetime at the original Epic Pass resort.

As North America’s fourth largest ski area (behind Whistler, Park City Mountain Resort, and Big Sky Resort), Vail’s terrain pleases every level of skier or snowboarder. The seemingly limitless skiing at Vail is best experienced in the expansive and legendary back bowls. Here, wide-open turns, glades, blue runs and steep and deep are all on tap, plus incredible views of the Gore Range and the Mt. Holy Cross, a Colorado 14er peak. Off-mountain, dining and nightlife options of all sorts from budget-friendly pub fare and live music clubs to Iron-Chef restaurants and posh lounges.

Two weeks ago,’s Epic Dream Job hire, Jackson Lebsack, completed the final stop of his two-month world tour of Epic Pass resorts. What a ride it’s been!
