There isn’t anyone who has lived in Vail for more than a year that hasn’t heard of Packy “Douglas” Walker. He, along with several other irreverent souls, brought color and life to this nascent community. It’s the stuff of legends. Sure, many have heard bits and pieces of the goings on that took place “in the beginning.” Things that could never take place now. It was fun. It was outlandish. It never gets old. Everyone who hears about the old days wishes they had been around. And no one can tell it better than Packy – in his own words – and in no particular order. Packy and Dave Garton honor actor William Holden who died, suddenly, after tripping on a rug and hitting his head while inebriated. THE ARRIVAL I was driving out to California; I’m not sure I was going anywhere. I was in my car and I […]
Forget the fluff and frills, these days kitchens are sleek and sophisticated, yet still comfortable. Today, a myriad of kitchen trends are influenced from places in every corner of the globe and by our lifestyle. With advances in technology, out-of-this-world options might include your oven being programmed – while you’re at work – to keep your food cold until it’s cooking time. Or your being able to change its cooking directions from your office computer. You can even change a fridge drawer into a freezer with a flip of a switch. A trip can influence the design of a kitchen. The sights and smells of, say, a rustic, European city can encourage an Old World feel. An Asian-inspired kitchen, with its touches of bamboo, built-in teriyaki grill and Japanese-style sliding doors will create a Zen comfort to help one unwind. Still the center of life in a home, some kitchens […]

Photographer Brent Bingham Stylist Joette Gilbert Hair and Make-up by Ralffy, Posh! Salon & Boutique The fashion rhythm in the mountains has always had a western beat. Clothes in wool, leather and fur make a strong statement. But the true Western woman is an individualist and creates her own sense of mountain elegance, not afraid to combine the romance of ruffles and lace with sexy, sleek riding breeches or sumptuous cashmere, worth every penny, topped off with a cowboy hat. And the beat continues with attitude, combining diamonds, pearls and precious stones with jeans, a white blouse and a leather coat. It is a timeless look, a rhythm that rocks anywhere you go!
