Our Advice on What to See at Teva Mountain Games This Weekend

There are so many events on tap this weekend at the Teva Mountain Games that it's hard to know where to start. Comps range from easy going to hardcore. Athletes range from everyman to pro. Spectator events range from
mountain sports to film screenings. How do you choose?  Lucky for you, we've done this a few times.  Here are our picks for the "must sees" in each category:

Welcome to Summer in Vail, Colorado

Or in my case, it's been welcome home to summer in Vail, CO.  I finally made my off-season escape to the islands on May 22 after weeks of snow and cold in the Rockies.  It seemed that summer was never going to arrive in Vail!  I needed my taste of warm weather and the tropics seemed the best place to get it. Unfortunately, warm weather turned into "unseasonably hot" according to the locals and while the scenery, sailing, snorkeling, seafood and general unplugging were more than worth the trip, I was ready to get back to the mountains by the end of i

Vail Mountain's Winter Season Goes Out with a Bang

The 2009-10 ski season has officially ended after an amazing
weekend of parties, concerts and skiing/ riding on Vail Mo
untain!  Spring Back to Vail was awesome again this year thanks to the collective efforts of Vail Resorts and Highline Sports & Entertainment.  Mother Nature did her part, too.  After predictions of snow/rain all weekend, we lucked out and had sunshine for all of the conce

Free Concerts & More For Spring Back To Vail

Vail Mountain is closing this weekend and the '09-10 season is definitely going out with a bang.  Record snow in the last few weeks helps as does the awesome end-of-season bash that is Spring Back to Vail

Festivities start with the Bud Light Street Beat Concert Finale (FREE) on Wednesday night featuring DJ Logic's Tribute to Michael Jackson.  Wear your best Michael Jackson costume for a chance to win a pair of Head Monster skis and bindings.  It's also the last chance for locals to register to win a Volvo 2011 C30.

Taste of Vail Takes Place This Weekend

The 20th Annual Taste of Vail is underway and is one of Vail's signature events.  Lodge at Lionshead is fortunate to be a lodging sponsor which means we get a handful of event passes for the weekend.  Excellent!  Last night, Joy and I sampled tasty dishes at the Colorado Lamb Cook Off.  This year, the cook off was combined with the Apres Ski Tasting, so we had fabulous wines available to wash down the gourmet fare.  We loved it which

Spring Skiing in Full Swing

Mother Nature has been holding back on us and is now making up for lost time.  Vail has had major snow storms the last three weeks - usually on Thursday or Friday - that have been big enough to shut down I-70 for a few hours.  In retrospect, a small price to pay for such great snow.  This week, she decided to deliver early.  Vail Mountain has had 32" of snow in the past 48 hours.  That's almost 3 feet of fluffy whiteness!!!  Needless to say words like "epic", "amazing" and the "best day(s) of the season" are b
