Lifeitsownself in Vail.  Can’t beat it.  8 inches of powder on Tuesday or was it Monday?  Then Spring conditions on Wednesday and Thursday.  Whenever you come, the conditions are usually the best in North America and for the occasional ski break there are plenty of other world class activities to do, day and night.  It’s a beautiful day in Colorado, Bob

Sunshine Sunshine Sunshine.  Today is a great day to ski.  Tons of snow earlier this week.  Sunday was epic once you got parked and got up the first lift.  It is really great to stay in town if you can.  Vail reported 15 inches overnight and Beaver Creek 5 inches (that was up to 5 am and the snow was still falling).  I’ve got a great little Single Family under contract for a front range couple and we are working through the contingencies and I did not get to enjoy the huge fresh powder.  After a snow like that with follow up 3 and 4 inchers on Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday the skiing is still primo. Come and see us.  It’s a beautiful day in Colorado,  Bob

Good snow but a dump would be great.  Ski for a while, drop into midvail to warm up, ski some more, work in the office, watch the NFL playoffs or golf in Hawaii.  Lindsey won another downhill.  People are fishing in the streams at this time of year-get a guide.  A good friend and a great lady passed away in Texas last week-her name was Honey.  She will be missed literally by a thousand people.  Some of my family lives there and some have traveled there to say goodbye.  I said goodbye last Spring.  Bless you Honey.

It’s a beautiful day in Colorado, Bob
