Truly a skier’s dream, your two-day Inside Access experience with world champions Picabo Street and Steve Mahre will begin each day, Friday and Saturday, at the base of Vail Mountain, just steps from The Lodge at Vail. In small group settings, Picabo and Steve will offer tips and skill building pointers to help enhance your skiing abilities. Prior to skiing with each group, Picabo and Steve will greet their assigned guests and take individual photos against the majestic mountain backdrop.
On Friday evening, along with Picabo and Steve, enjoy an Après Ski premium bar and dinner reception with food provided by Elway’s Vail Restaurant. Guests will join Picabo Street, and Steve Mahre at The Lodge at Vail to hear first-hand what it’s like to race down the most famous ski mountains in the world and live with the daily competitive pressures that go along with being a world-class athlete. Picabo and Steve will answer questions and take photos with Cardmembers. This relaxing environment set in the historic Lodge at Vail, a Rock Resort, will offer Cardmembers an opportunity to experience the champions off the slopes and will make for a memorable and magical event with two of the most legendary ski racers in US history.
After completing your group sessions each day, your all-day lift ticket will give you the opportunity to continue skiing the magnificent Vail Mountain on your own. Post skiing and during your stay, enjoy all that the quaint Vail Village has to offer.
