Vail’s Legendary Terrain: Chair 2 & Mid Mountain

Mar. 9, 2017

What makes Chair #2 Mid Mountain Legendary?

Chair #2 is often overlooked as simply being a method of transportation to other areas of the mountain, but it also has some Legendary terrain of it’s own.  With kid’s adventure zones like Chaos Canyon, and Porcupine Alley, this is a kid-approved area! Not to worry,  for those seeking a more adrenaline boosting experience, Mid Mountain offers some of the best rolling, wide groomers on the mountain with plenty of vertical feet. You can also put your skills to the test in our EpicMix race course. Afterwards be sure to stop by Waffle Way, at the bottom of Chair #2, for some sweet and savory waffle options and sunny locale to kick back and rest your legs.

How to Get There

Via Gondola One: Exit Gondola and take Upper Lion’s way to the base of Chair #2

Via Eagle Bahn: Exit Gondola, follow Practice Parkway to Cub’s Way to Chair #2
