Travel Haiku - Vail Mega Ski Resort

the snow piles up our desire
for fun

layer and layer of fun
spread over the field

our thirst for ski fun

snow fuels our fhirst
for ski fun

snow perfect as your skin
for a run of pleasure

light, powdery
fun as flight

Simply put, Vail is the king of U.S. mega ski resorts. This massive (and very developed) locale offers more groomed trails than anywhere else on the planet and boasts the largest skiable mountain in the country. With 193 trails,5,289 skiable acres, and four terrain parks, there truly is something for everyone. And if you grow weary of the piste, the Adventure Ridge center offers enough activities to keep you busy: tubing, thrill-sledding, ski-bike tours, snowmobile tours, snowshoe tours, and laser tag.

Has the blind white veil of snow shrouded Vail blinded you to the 'over development', perhaps not, but your travel piece at the end belies the unspoiled symmetry of the poem I feel.
