    Fresh Tracks…Snowcat Skiing
    Heather Hower | Activities | December 20, 2015

    Imagine eight hours of skiing untracked, fresh powder with no lift lines and only a small group of fellow powder fanatics along with you on this ride.

    Eat Your Veggies
    Brenda Himelfarb | Dining , Dining and Nightlife , Healthy Living | July 20, 2016

    Back in the day, talk of someone being a vegetarian conjured up visions of an emaciated, pale looking person who probably lived in or was from California, of course, and didn’t know anything about eating properly. We were all happily eating our deep fried chicken, country-fried steaks and ball-park hot dogs. Winds up that those hippies were right on. […]

    Cassie Pence | Dining , Dining and Nightlife |

    During the peak of summer, Executive Chef David Gutowski and his staff clip fresh greens twice a week from Grouse Mountain Grill’s garden plot in the EagleVail Community Garden. They fill two huge garbage bags and return to the Beaver Creek restaurant to wash and spin the mix of organic lettuces. Just a few hours later, lucky diners taste the peak of summer on their […]

    Reel Women Fly Fishing in the Vail Valley
    Heather Hower | Activities , Features |

    The line glides out, the fly lands on a pool of water, the fisherwoman waits patiently, tempting the fish beneath the water. If the fish refuses the fly, she reels in the line, searching, finessing the fly gently down the river. Women have discovered what fishermen have long known: fly fishing is good for the mind, body and spirit. Working on […]

    Color Takes Flight
    Brenda Himelfarb | Featured Stories , Features | June 26, 2016

    Several years ago, the makers of M&M’s added the color blue to its bag of candy – the result of a vote by M&M’s fans. However, the company soon found that the blue M&M’s were usually the last ones left in the bottom of the bag. It seems, of all the colors in the spectrum, […]

    Camping, Glamping and Cabins
    CarsonPierce | Featured Stories , Features |

    When you really think about it, good old fashioned camping is basically an outdoor version of housekeeping. As writer-humorist, Tim Dowling, puts it, “Camping is to living as cooking is to barbecuing. There is something satisfying about escaping from our reliance on infrastructure that turns the most tedious chore into an adventure. Suddenly making toast […]

    Hummingbirds Feeding our Souls – The Hummingbirds of Eagle County
    Brenda Himelfarb | Environment , Featured Stories , Features |

    It flits. It flutters. It fascinates us. And if one gets very close, it’s as though you’ve somehow been specially chosen to enjoy its dance. Then, in a blink of the eye it’s gone. And you’re left savoring the moment you’ve just experienced; a few seconds that will delight. It’s that extraordinary and, in its own way, feeds your soul. The flight of a hummingbird is mesmerizing.

    Racing to Build Vail
    Richard Carnes | Featured Stories , Features , Local Spotlight | December 20, 2015

    Bob Lazier always loved cars. His first auto purchase at age 14 was an “ice car,” appropriately named since it could only be driven on frozen Lake Minnetonka during the winter months, but his parents helped him procure a four-year-old Jaguar in 1958. “I absolutely love cars, and I absolutely love driving cars, and I […]

    Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy
    Shauna Farnell | Featured Stories , Features , Focus Vail Valley | December 17, 2015

    Tucked between the mountains at the far side of Minturn, the first indication that Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy is unlike any school anywhere is that it is surrounded by miles and miles of Nordic ski trails.

    Brenda Himelfarb | Features , Wedding | December 8, 2015

    Many people might be surprised to see a bride – veil flowing, bouquet in hand, bridegroom in his tuxedo at her side – skiing down a mountain in the middle of winter.

Ask Chef Fernando Ocampo for a recipe and he will give it to you, but don’t be surprised when the dish you make doesn’t taste like it did when you were dining in his restaurant. “The last ingredient I put in is 100-percent love,” shares Ocampo. And that’s Ti Amo — an Italian “I love you” that always tastes so good.
