7PM This Friday and Saturday evening Vail Valley Theatre Company presents Stephen Sondheim’s preeminent classic “Into the Woods” at Battle Mountain High School.

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece… and a rare modern classic. The Vail Valley Theatre Company enhance this already timeless piece!

The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.

One of Sondheim’s most popular works, “Into the Woods” is a musically sophisticated show with the opportunity to feature actor’s adept at dark comedy. The audience will especially enjoy highlighting the fantastical elements of this magical word.

Redstone Castle

Redstone Castle is located in Redstone Colorado, just outside of Carbondale. Built in 1897 for John C. Osgood, this residency has seen it’s share of Colorado history. Teddy Roosevelt and John D. Rockefeller have enjoyed spending time at this beautiful, historical abode. The movie, ‘The Prestige‘ starring Michael Caine, Christian Bale and Scarlett Johansson was filmed at this location, as well!

The Castle remains essentially true to the original form from when it was assembled in 1897, and for that reason it is protected under the Colorado Historical Easement. This essentially means that only the furniture may be replaced. There are 42 rooms spread out over 24,000 square feet, along with 14 fireplaces for warmth. Beautifully designed Tiffany light fixtures adorn the custom motif of every uniquely created room, each with it’s own testament to a different country. A must see is the Gentlemen’s Game Room, so many rich, opulent stories to be told there!

This beautiful property is set for Auction on October 7, 2016, you must provide a minimum bid of $2,000,000.00 to throw in your hat. Good Luck!!

As we approach October there are several happenings that ignite our excitment here at Gateway; Halloween festivites, tasty seasonal local brews, and coming together as a community to raise money and awarenss in the race to cure breast cancer.

Kicking off the fist of October with the 7th annual Pinktoberfest! Hosted by Eagle’s Dusty Boot Bar it’ll be fun for all ages!

  

Throughout October, Aria Spa & Club at the Vail Cascade Resort have a variety of ways that support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A month-long spa promotion and special yoga sessions will provide members and guests with ways to remain strong, building awareness of the prevention of the disease. The local beneficiary of all the charity events is the Shaw Regional Cancer Center in Edwards.For the third year, Aria Spa will donate $5 to the Shaw Regional Cancer Center for every massage, facial or body treatment that is booked in October. Additionally, the spa is offering a 40 percent discount on all massages, facials, and body treatments, and 20 percent off all nail services through Nov. 30. On Oct. 7 and 8, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Aria Club will host a new charity event to raise money to find a cure for breast cancer. The 24 Hours of Aria Challenge encourages participants to get a great cardio workout while supporting the cause, with a suggested donation of $5 for each half hour time slot. Select cardio fitness equipment will be reserved with pink ribbons just for the event. The two days of the event are free and open to all! The Aria tennis program is also involved in raising breast cancer awareness by holding the annual “Rally for the Cause” on Oct. 22 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The tennis rally will kick off the action with a Longest Rally contest. WOW! Hard to pass up such incredible deals as well as positive active fun for the whole family!

This year, Shaw Regional Cancer Center is asking you, Eagle & Summit county residents, to share your messages of inspiration and hope through photography! Let your photo make a difference by positively impacting those who see it. Enter your photo at PinktoberPhoto.com or email your photo to Jeff.Owens@vvmc.com with your name and phone number, and we’ll post it for you.

Dogma Athletica in The Riverwalk at Edwards has teamed up with the Shaw Center to promote health and awareness and to give back to the community. Dogma is sponsoring a yoga challenge, encouraging yogis to stretch, sweat and decompress — not only to benefit their own well being, but to give back to those in need. For each yoga class attended, Dogma will donate 50 cents to the Shaw Center. The more classes attended, the more Dogma will donate. In the spirit of healthy competition, Dogma will be tracking how many classes each yogi attends, and the yogis who attend the most classes in the month of October will win prizes. Dogma will also encourage yogis to wear pink throughout the month of October in the spirit of breast cancer awareness.

Vail Valley’s Fall Foliage is almost peaking!

With beautiful golden hues in dense Aspen filled meadows, trekking up Booth Falls Trail you are in a sea of lush Fall colors and smells!

Booth Falls hike

Along this hike be sure to stop and take a gaze behind you – for some of the best views are those behind you.

Booth Falls Trail head is located just off I-70 and although categorized as a strenuous hike, take your time and pace your hike so you can gaze at the endless Aspens maybe take a seat and enjoy a packed picnic?! There is no need to rush this experience.

Atop you’ll reach a refreshing waterfall which I welcome you to kick off your hiking boots and cool off as I do! If you’re up for it, hike another couple miles to Booth Lake where the deep blue water next to the rich gold aspens sure makes for quite the site!

Booth Falls Trail

Not only do you gain a greater sense of the beauty this incredible Valley has to offer you also gain elevation – stay hydrated hikers!

Happy Fall hiking!

SOLDS are for the past several days and range from around $285,000- up to over $14,000,000-.  It is quite a range of property values for sure.  What is important simply is there is a property out there for you most likely at a price which is affordable for you.

UNDER CONTRACT properties are those pending with an accepted offer by the seller from a buyer and they are now working through the process to meet all of the contractual terms, be it an inspection, financing, or it could be one or more of many other terms to yet be fulfilled.  Some meet all the requirements and move to the SOLD category others do not and may then return to LISTINGS back on the market.  The range of listed properties UNDER CONTRACT are from $275K to over $2.2M.

PRICE REDUCTIONS on average is $42,650- of Listed properties.  Keep in mind the spread of Listing prices are from the $400K to over $2.4M.  Regardless, there are motivated sellers and is this the time for you to make your move?

NEW LISTINGS on the market are located from East Vail to Gypsum.  They range in listing price from $465K up to $3.2M.  Is this in your price range?  Could this be one of the areas you are considering?

Yes indeed…a quick look up toward the top of most hills and one will see the change of colors.  It was a couple of weeks ago when I first noticed yellows on the tip of tree branches.  It is a welcome site to me and I enjoy the color variations displayed.  Do You?

Aspens in Vail

It is the cooler nights which prompted the color change and this week in Edwards we have dipped below the forty degree mark more than once.  Don’t get discouraged…the daytime temps have been glorious in the mid-seventies with plentiful sunshine.  This cycle is expected to continue for awhile, so come up and join or visit us!
