    With the multitude of outdoor activities to enjoy in the Vail Valley, it’s not surprising that most people try and fit 26 hours into each day. From skiing and snowboarding to snowshoeing, fat biking and ice climbing, there are plenty of opportunities to get out and enjoy all that the area has to offer. However, […]

    How Did I get here?

    This is the question that I often ask myself when I’m sitting alone in some of our planet’s most remote winter environments getting ready to participate in an activity that, at one point, I could only dream about. My first thought is always, “WOW!” And then I ask myself, “How did this happen?” Soon I […]

    Winter Wonderland of Jewelry
    Heather Hower | Featured Stories , Features | January 2, 2017

    Diamonds or pearls? Pearls or diamonds? What’s your pleasure? The brilliant opulence of a sparkling diamond versus the quiet perfect, shimmering luster of a pearl.

    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.

    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 Valley Kitchens

    In Medieval days, when kitchen hearths were placed in the center of the home, the inhabitants – even the livestock – huddled around during deepening winters for warmth and light while women cooked over open fires. Today’s kitchens have come full circle. Although cooks no longer slave over open flames in smoke-filled rooms, and the […]
