"Vail: Did You Know?" - The Story Behind The Trail 'Riva Ridge'
Ever wonder where the trail "Riva Ridge" got its name? As you may know, Vail owes much of its history to the  10th Mountain Division , an elite group of mountain warfare light infantry that trained at nearby Camp Hale and served in World War II. The trail name comes from the infantry’s best-known combat achievement on Riva Ridge in the mountains of Northern Italy in February of 1945. As t he single longest run on the mountain, Riva Ridge is one of Vail’s most iconic ski trails dropping an impressive 3,000 vertical feet over four miles.
