Hallelujah the snow gods have spoken, and Vail Mountain's season is extended!!!

Since its closing last Sunday, Vail Mountain has received 2 feet of snow, leaving many locals and die hard skiers mourning the premature ending to what has been an incredible season. "This is a great way to end out 50th anniversary season," says Chris Jarnot, SVP and COO at Vail Mountain. "This is an opportunity for our season pass holders and skiers from around the region to take advantage of a few extra days, enjoying more sping skiing we all love here in Colorado."

Breckenridge will also reopen for the weekend.

So let the spring skiing continue and enjoy a safe, powder filled weekend! What a gift!

 

As the snow melts off of the Vail Valley's golf courses, winter snowsports enthusiasts will put away their winter gear and dust off the golf clubs.  With the guarantee that the Cordillera Valley Club Golf Course will be open for play, golfers will be sure to enjoy the warm, south facing greens and gorgeous Sawatch Mountain views.  Located on the back nine is 31 Fall Creek Road, a golf course residence that boasts 5 bedrooms, 6 baths, a golf cart garage, stunning vistas and beautiful landscaping. 

Offered at $1,749,000

Vail, Colorado is full of entertainment.  From skiing to white water rafting, there is ton to do.  With the activities Vail has to offer it would be hard to get by without a fun-filled dining experience to rejuvenate.

When in Vail, depending on the experience you are looking for, you have many options for delicious food and great entertainment.  Vail has the dining experience for every occasion whether you are getting off the mountain with your friends, in town with family or out with that special someone.

On numerous occasions I have ended up at the Red Lion after an extremely fun day on the mountain with family and friends.  The atmosphere is outrageously fun.  Immediately when you walk in you are greeted with a smile from one or multiple staff members.  Each and every person who works at the Red Lion wants to be there and, as a customer, you can feel the positive energy.  Everyday for Opre there is live music usually played by one of the owners, Phil Long, or one of his talented friends.

The positive vibe is not the only appealing part of the Red Lion.  The food is another reason why I return on a regular basis.  If you are looking to feed a large group of people I would recommend indulging in a family plate of nachos.  When the nachos arrive at your table I guarantee your entire group and those around will gasp with disbelief over the enormous amount of chips, salsa, meat and melted cheese.

The Red Lion is great for all occasions.  It is a wonderful place to bring your kids, go out with your significant other or for a night out with friends.  When in Vail, I would highly recommend visiting the Red Lion.  You will not be disappointed!
