    Be good to People – The original kindness company
    Heather Hower | Culture in the Vail Valley , Featured Stories , Features | July 5, 2017

    It’s not scientifically proven but it is some kind of universal fact that while wearing a “Be Good To People” shirt, it’s hard to be mean. This is exactly what Kris Wittenberg wanted when she founded the company almost a decade ago. Sure, the road hasn’t been a straight shot but the meandering path she […]

    I am Climate I am change
    Cassie Pence | Featured Stories , Features | July 4, 2017

    What do you love about the mountains? Chances are it’s skiing, snowboarding, rafting, kayaking, fishing, paddle boarding, hunting, hiking, wildflowers, bug-free camping, cool summers, biking, rock climbing, wildlife, majestic pines – and not to mention – fresh air and clean water. It’s what I love too, but everything we cherish about living and vacationing in […]

    ROUNDUP RIVER RANCH
    Brenda Himelfarb | Featured Stories , Features , Giving Back | July 3, 2017

    There is a place up Colorado River Road in Gypsum where children’s dreams, literally, come true. A happy place where children do things they never thought they would or even could do. It’s a place where they’re welcomed with open arms and where they can just “be.” It’s peaceful. It’s beautiful. It’s extraordinary. And for […]

    Serenity at the Spa
    Katie Coakley | Featured Stories , Features | January 3, 2017

    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. There is so much to love with both of these gems. They spice up an outfit, give a little shazam to the ordinary day; they add bling, sparkle and a […]

    Eat Your Veggies
    Brenda Himelfarb | Dining , Dining and Nightlife , Featured Stories , 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. […]

    Farm to Table in the Vail Valley

    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 […]

    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 […]
