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 in formation with bright headlights lit and the Adventure Ridge ski biking tours start.  It's fun to watch the bikers' little headlamps as they weave their way down the mountain.  That's when I think "Vail is such a great place to live!"  And a great place to visit!
