THE DAY AFTER THE MOUNTAIN CLOSED - Vail Mountain and Beaver Creek Mountain closed for the season yesterday.  Closing Day revellers found 12" to 15" of new snow and crystal clear blue skies - until 11:00am.  Then, near blizzard conditions closed the back bowls and drove many off the mountain.  This is a typical closing day reminicent of 18 of 20 past closing days.  We'll most likely have FEET of new snow now through May - another reason you won't find many Locals in the office for awhile.  The beach sounds pretty good right now!                                                                                                        PHOTO:  Nilsson Images

A FOGGY MORNING IN THE VAIL VALLEY -        Hmmm... this is interesting.  Fog is a very rare event here - happens only once or twice a year.  A nice heavy rain last night wiped out any last hint of snow here in the lowlands but no doubt dumped lots of nice late season snow on Vail mountain.        This is kind of a nice change.  We are now in the last three weeks of ski season 2012 -2013.  I'm looking forward to summer!                                                                                                                                        Photo:  Nilsson Images

He continued picking up speed when he won gold in WX 2011 Big Air with a triple backflip 180 (first triple landed in competition). Besides Horgmo's versatile style and laundry list of win's, he's also been making music. Check Out Torstein's SoundCloud Here.    Men's Slopestyle Semi-Final Res...
The Burton US Open is off to a powerful start with the women throwing down hard out-of-the-gate! Spencer O'Brien graced us with her presence today all the way from Canada. She led the ladies with a killer run that included a frontside boardslide, wallride to gap to frontside lipslide, 50-50 frontside 180 out, switch backside 180 mute grab, and a front slide 360 to backside 540 indy grab.   Photo credit: Jeff Patterson Jamie Anderson (USA) wasn't far behind O'Brien, while Brooke Voight (CAN) came in 3rd completing the Canadian / US sandwich. O'Brien is a 24yr old, Canadian Native. When she's not riding regular on her snowboard, she's getting goofy in the kitchen. You can even catch her on an episode of the Food Network's Dinner: Impossible! Aside from cooking, O'Brien also enjoys hiking,...

It's a Mountain Dog thing... you wouldn't understand. Meet Miss Maude.  Maude is a Chow-mix my husband and I adopted in Savannah, GA ten years ago.  Maude is a lucky mountain dog now, living in the Vail Valley of Colorado.  She loves being a mountain dog, and thanks her lucky stars with all that fur she didn’t get stuck in the hot, humid south.  She even gets to go to work with her “mom and dad” on occasion. At the office today, Maude begged me to head out into Vail Village to sport her new leash, a Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate logo leash.  Maude loves being a mountain dog so much that if she could talk, I swear she’d sell a house a week.  No one could resist her tales of how great the mountain lifestyle is!

Vail Valley Snowfall in the last 7 days… 27” VAIL 19” BEAVER CREEK What does this mean?  It means the holidays are going to be serious fun in the Vail Valley!  I hope you’re heading up and over the mountains to visit our beautiful winter wonderland.  With more snow on the way (or so they say…) we are ready for a fantastic holiday season!  To prove how wonderful it really is here, this is my dog, Zutnik, testing the depth with her nose…  She approves!

  VAIL'S LEGENDARY BACK BOWLS WILL BE OPEN SATURDAY, DEC. 22. Over 2' of snow has fallen in the last 5 days, infinitely improving the attitudes of Vailites and visitors alike - just in time for the Holidays.  By Saturday, skiable terrain on the largest ski resort in the United States will increase to 2500 acres with the opening of Vail's Legindary Sun Up and Sun Down bowls.  The Snow Gods are have definitely changed their attitudes about Vail and have decided to grant us a little of the snow they held back last year.  It's time to make those reservations!

Vail’s 50th Anniversary Despite Vail’s modest early snowfall, local and traveling powder hounds alike are anxious to get back on the mountain. With only 2 runs available this past weekend, the lift lift lines proved that skiers and snowboarders are a dedicated bunch willing to wait their turn. Most of Vail’s full time residence relocated primarily for the premium mountain access. Forgive us if we spray you with powder, we’re just excited.Last year was Breckenridge’s 50th Anniversary and they didn’t fail to remind you each and every day with crazy promotions, epic photos with the “50th Anniversary” and heavy online marketing. Their initial marketing idea was the most aggressive. On opening day they were preparing to give anyone who wanted one a FREE Breckenridge Resort “B” tattoo. It got...
