Vorlage Terrain Overview
Vorlage has a total of 18 ski trails, which are serviced by 4 ski lifts, gondolas and/or trams. Vorlage is considered a smaller than average ski area, with only a maximum of 80 acres available to ski. This area is equivalent to 32 hectares, 0.1 square miles, or 0.3 square kilometers.
Vorlage's slopes see on average 200 inches (5.1 meters) of snowfall a year. That is almost 16 feet every year!
Vorlage has a summit elevation of 787 feet, or 240 meters. However, not all of that elevation is able to be skied. The base of the ski slope sits at 360 feet above sea level, creating a ski hill that is 490 feet (149 meters) high. This is referred to as the slope's vertical drop - or a measure of how high the skiable hill is.
Vorlage has a very low summit elevation. The summit of this park is one of the smaller ones in the country.

DID YOU KNOW?
At Parks & Trips, we've created a proprietary Difficulty Score that attempts to show how difficult a particular ski slope is. We get to this number by combining a number of metrics for each resort and comparing them to its peers. Most of the score is based off the amount of easy-intermediate-expert slopes by acreage and the maximum vertical drop of the overall resort, but also includes a few lesser-used metrics as well.
Our algorithm compares each resort’s metrics with all others in North America, then assigns each a Difficulty Score, which we use to rank them accordingly. Resorts with a lower score are easier to ski than those with a higher one. However, a high score does not mean that the resort does not have any easy slopes, or vice versa. This is just an overall score given to the resort based on all its metrics grouped together.

Expert trails (identified by a black diamond... or two) are the hardest slopes on the mountain, and have very steep gradients over 40%.
