Celebrity Watching in Vail This Week

This week the American Ski Classic returns to Vail.  Each season this Pro/ Am celebrity ski event features ski racing each day and entertainment each night.   Celebrities face off against former Olympians and ski team members in the Volvo Legends of Skiing Giant Slalom and then the "legends" captain celebrity teams for the Ford Cup races.  The big question, of course, is  - which celebrities can you expect to see this week?  We hear Buzz Aldrin, Robert Carradine, Robert Kennedy, Jr., Kerri Strug, Amy Tan, Joe Washington

Some of Our Favorite Vail Restaurants

Rachel and Heather - two of the most knowledgeable and friendly concierges in Vail who also happen to work at Lodge at Lionshead - have offered to let us in on a few of their favorite places to dine out. For high-end dining, they suggest Terra Bistro, Montauk, La Bottega, Larkspur and La Tour. For more casual fare, Los Amigos has great Tex-Mex in addition to a lively après ski scene on their deck right at the base of the Vista Bahn in Vail Village. Pizza lovers can indulge at Pazzo's or Blue Moose Pizza - both have specialty pizzas as well as the old stand-bys.

Epic Season Pass Sales Announced

Unlimited.  Unrestricted.  Unreal.  That's the tagline and it's true.  The Epic Season Pass is simply THE best deal you'll find anywhere in the world of season passes.  For the super low price of $579, you get unrestricted (NO black out dates) skiing and riding at 6 of the most renowned ski resorts in the country - Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone, Breckenridge, Heavenly and Arapahoe Basin.  Incredible, huh?  We think so.  You also get all the perks of membership in the Epic Pass Club - from discounted ski-with-a-friend ticket


What a special day!  Tillie & I skied with return guests of the Lodge at Lionshead who have become wonderful friends; Antonio, Alma and Tonio Correa.  The sun was shining, there was 5-6" of new snow on Vail Mountain and we skied all day long.  While I finished a bit of work in the office, the kids swam in the pool.  We finished our day with a lovely meal in their condo.  The more time we spend sharing stories of our lives the more we feel like family.  I will be sad to say good-bye to them tomorrow but will look forward to seeing Antonio and Alm

Spring Skiing Sneak Peak

Vail guests and locals have been spoiled this past week with a preview of the gorgeous spring weather to come.  Temps have been in the 40's on the slopes and 50's in town.  I love a Colorado blue bird day on Vail mountain!  Follow it up with apres ski on a sunny deck and you've had the perfect day.  It just doesn't get any better.  Unless it's a powder day.  With storms in the forecast for the weekend, Vail may get one of those very soon...

What a Great View!

Looking out the window from my desk at the Lodge's front desk and watching people come down Born Free on Vail Mountain.  It's one of my favorite things to do when I need a break from looking at my computer screen!  We're close enough that I can differentiate between skiers, snowboarders and the tele skiers coming down that last face.  Can always spot the big crashes and love to see the poofs of snow when someone stops at the top of the ridge.  The show changes at night.  Snowcats come down
