What makes Sun Up & Sun Down Bowl Legendary?

Sun Up & Sun Down will likely be your first view of the iconic Back Bowls of Vail, and it is nothing short of inspiring.

With the perfect mix of wide open, sprawling terrain, and gladed runs, your ride down will be breathtaking.  Thanks to the the recent renovation and addition of a high speed quad on the Sun Up Express Lift (#9), more skiing time, and less chair sitting time is now possible in Sun Up Bowl.

◆ Forever: One of the most iconic trails on Vail Mountain, Forever was named by a Vail original, Pepi, of Pepi’s Face and the restaurant in Vail Village, Forever was named when Pepi first skied the run in 1961. Since Vail opened in 1962, Pepi had to hike out from the bottom of the run without the aid of a chairlift. When he finally got back to the top, he said “By God, that’s a super slope! But it takes forever to climb out!”
