Let Gateway Lead You Home

I am an early bird person by nature but not one to get out of the house early. Big difference! And to  get me at the Vail Mountain Club, one of the Vail Resorts Signature Clubs, at 7 am takes a lot! And First Tracks is just that…a lot of fun, a lot of camaraderie and a lot of great food!


And all the early morning frenzy to leave Cordillera Valley Club in Edwards by 6:30am is worth it! Enjoying the sunrise from the gondola is a spectacular event as it breaks over the Gore Range.


And what a thrill to cruise down a corduroy groomed run awaiting your first tracks! But the real joy is the sumptuous and extravagant brunch buffet awaiting you and your friends at The Tenth restaurant at the top of Gondola One! YUMMY!
