If you have ever visited Vail in the wintertime then you know what I mean by "winter wonderland." The skies are eggshell blue, the ground is clean and white, and the mountains are covered in a blanket of fresh, fluffy cotton. I know I may be biased, but this land is truly the most beautiful place to be in the winter. And if you have ever skied Vail then you know what I mean by "paradise."

With over 7 miles of mountain frontage, 7 bowls, 3 terrain parks, and 5,289 acres of skiable terrain, Vail is the best place on Earth, period. And to be able to enjoy this with pure freedom, without any blackout dates and unlimited access to Vail and it's fine mountain sisters (Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Heavenly, Northstar at Tahoe, and Arapahoe Basin) for $649 is truly mind-blowing. (Let's be honest… The cost of a 3-day pass in peak season is $279.)
