Northwoods Express is a legendary lift on the front side of Vail Mountain, serving moderate and advanced terrain for wild riders. The new lift will reduce wait times and increase capacity by 25%! The increase will also improve the flow of skiers and snowboarders to Vail’s epic Back Bowls and Blue Sky Basin throughout the day, as well as create a better flow of traffic exiting Blue Sky Basin and moving across the mountain at the end of the day.

If you ride as often as I do on Vail’s awesome mountain you can understand my utter excitement for this addition! I feel like this expansion will create more space for riders; as there is more access to terrain via the Northwoods lift #11!

Check out this awesome quote from Doug Lovell – chief operating officer here at Vail Mountain… “The replacement of Northwoods will impact a key area of the mountain, especially at the end of the day, as guests are leaving Blue Sky Basin and making their way west,” said Lovell. “Every time we upgrade a lift at Vail, we are enhancing the guest experience on the mountain, and that experience has been completely transformed since 2007. We are allowing guests more time to explore the terrain and less time waiting in line or riding a chairlift.”

This six-passenger lift to debut during the 2017-2018 winter season. The new lift marks the 10th lift replacement in the last 11 years at Vail.

The Winter time brings with it a promise of speeding down steep slopes here in beautiful Vail Village! While hugely different in approach, yoga and skiing are in reality hugely complementary. Here in Vail we have many adventure driver residents who thrive on excitement!

Image result for yoga in the winter

Skiing and snowboarding are a mix of agility and dexterity achieved over time, regardless if our practice is for an entire season or just a weekend holiday squeezed into our busy schedule. While yoga offers a sense of calm, meditative movements facilitated by breath.  And as every annual skier or snowboarder knows we active muscles on the mountain that aren’t always engaged in the “off seasons”.  So let’s be mindful when warming up so we don’t suffer and interrupt our après-ski indulgences….

Here are my favorite asanas for strengthening thighs:

Forward bend: Offers your hamstrings a deep stretch as it loosens the calve muscles – with your weight in the heels exhale fully here and be sure to support yourself with props that allow you completely fold over and out of your hip crease.

Warrior pose: Stretches hip flexors and hamstrings on the back of the legs while activating your feet, ankles, glutes and quads on the front of the leg. For alignment sake, take a peek down at your front bent leg making sure you can see your big toe!

Chair pose: This is a tough one for me but so beneficial, it’s the classic ski and board pose warming up and building strength in the legs.  Try and keep both legs together fully activated while weight is in the heels of the feet, try and lift your toes here to ensure your weight is well spread!

Reclined cobblers pose: very important as it can prevent knee injury when properly executed. This pose improves the flexibility in your inner thighs!

Warming up your hip flexors is vital as we maximize agility here while skiing and snowboarding.  When we build more strength in our hip flexors we are creating a base of equilibrium and muscle foundation which in turn improves the support to our upper body!

Engaging the core muscles of the abdomen enhances good turns on the slopes and alleviates pressure form the knees, protecting the joints from injury.

Asanas for maximizing core strength:

Tree pose: This pose is awesome, engaging the core, quads, calves, ankles and spine while stretching the hip flexors, inner thighs, chest and shoulders.  Not to mention, balance! Tree pose promotes mobility in the hip and knee joints which supports the slick carving and turning we take on top the mountain.

Spinal twist: Improves spine mobility, glute flexibility and outer thigh muscles. Any spirals we create without body serves as a ringing motion that rides our body of toxins. Deep breaths here…

Downward facing dog: I encourage you all to once a day find yourself in downward facing dog – transitioning into plank position is great for building core strength!

With mindful preparation and a bit of patience you will ready to hit the slopes – pain free!

Enjoy y’all!

Eagle County‘s first Trophy Home dates back 6,000 years! Built buy nomadic Native Americans, the historical, well preserved Yarmony Pit House was in use through the 1800’s. Native American’s nestled at this site during the long Colorado winters, using this habitation for hunting grounds for thousands of years! They gathered here prior to the Anasazi  Indians creating Colorado’s Mesa Verde and well before the Great Pyramids of Egypt or Stonehenge were erected!

Pg27-2

First unearthed in 1987 near State Bridge, the Yarmony Pit House is one of Colorado‘s oldest archaeological sites. Discovered accidentally during a routine road improvement project, Yarmony Pit House soon changed the previously held perception as to how far north Native Americans wintered.

Over 4,000 unscathed artifacts were unearthed during the excavation headed by Michael D. Metcalf. To preserve the Yaromony site, archaeologist’s have back-filled the area with sand. This not only preserves the integrity of the pit houses, but will also allow future archaeologist’s to re-explore this area without further contamination or erosion to the site. Metcalf would like to expand the survey to include more of Colorado’s River valleys with the intent of discovering more Native American Pit Houses, which will in turn fill in some of the gaps in our Colorful Colorado history!

Hi & good morning,

SOLDS – 11 properties have sold, ranging in price from a parking spot in Vail for $100K- to $999K for a single family home in Singletree.

UNDER CONTRACT – 8 new UC properties are reported ranging from $124900- for a lot in Red Cliff to $850K up in Beaver Creek for a ski in/ski out.

PRICE REDUCTIONS – Two price reductions one for $50K the other for $19100-, worth looking at for a better deal.

NEW LISTINGS – 7 new listings range from $449K for a 3 Bdrm 3BA in Edwards to $4.3M for 360+/- Acres near Dotsero with an improvement on it.

Have a good week…
