Nice day in Eagle County-Vail to get some exercise, but I am in the office, obviously blogging.  A Blue Bird Day.  Golf, biking, fishing Gore Creek or the Eagle River and hiking and snow shoeing would be high on the list.  2 game 7’s and 1 game 1 in the NBA and golf in New Orleans and ice hockey are available for TV people.  Forget the talk shows, I need a break from politics.  I’ll get some of the sports action in the office where we have a TV.  Yes, I know I should stay busy with real estate and would more if you would visit so we could discuss selling your property here or buying a property here or just finding out what it is worth. 

The Vail Daily has a nice article beginning on the 1st page about the busy action of March sales with one of our Gateway Real Estate pros Robert Schilling being prominently quoted numerous times.  When he is not skiing in the winter or hiking in the summer, he is hard core real estate the rest of the time.  I am a little more laid back.  Give either of us a call or Don Galgan or Betty Guffey, a few of the other agents in the Vail office a call.  Don and I were in kindergarten together and reacquainted after that as campers in Cheley Camps many years ago.  Betty Guffey is a good gal from Dallas. 


Check out the website ( to see all the agents working for Gateway here in the Vail and the Edwards offices.  Suzie Apple, our owner/Broker, is a top broker in the Valley and helped get Arrowhead off the ground.  The stories she can tell are very interesting about numerous subjects.  When I show Arrowhead (aka County Club of the Rockes) I would not think of not having her along if possible.  I hope you have a good day.  It’s a beautiful day in Colorado, Bob

Whether you snow shoe the 2000 vertical feet or ski in, The Yurt on Arrowhead Mountain may be the most precious hidden gem in the entire Vail Valley.

Situated on an out of bounds trail off the top of the Arrow Bahn Express, The Yurt is the only true private dining on any of the Vail Valleys ski mountains.



In order to dine at this stylish Mongolian traveling tent or Yurt, one must be a member at The Alpine Club in Arrowhead. But this is far from slumming it! The Yurt is outfitted with plush pillows and Ralph Lauren decor. Expansive wrap around decks offer grand vistas and sweeping views overlooking Muddy Springs and the Lake Creek ridge line. Enjoy the blackened salmon BLT with a glass of Cakebread wine or go more casual with the local brew, Crazy Mountain Ale, coupled with a hot pretzel and honey mustard.



And if you are not lucky enough to be a member of The Alpine Club, befriend one! You won’t regret it!
