The Four Seasons Vail is offering guests a taste of the latest trend in winter activities, uphill skiing or skinning (named after the long strips placed on skis to allow them to glide over the snow, while giving traction to keep you from sliding back after each step, as you move uphill). The Dawn Patrol package allows guests to skin up the mountain with local, knowledgeable guides from the Paragon Guide Company before the lifts start turning. The pre-sunrise ascent of the mountain is followed by a sunrise ski down the hill, culminating in a big (well-earned) breakfast back at renowned Flame Restaurant inside Four Seasons Resort and Residences Vail. A professional videographer will document the whole experience and create a video with the footage as a memento.
