Our editor-in-chief, Joette loves her dogs and her dogs love the snow! Check out some adorable shots of her furry family!
When the schools are out and the roads are covered.. wake up! It’s a powder day! A little skiing and loving life here in the Vail Valley. View from the Rose Bowl Chair. Fresh snow below and amazing group of snow covered pines. Happy Faces waiting for Chair 6 to open. The snow covered bridge hints at what was waiting on the slopes.
The cars are covered, the highways are covered, my dog is buried , the schools are closed… and we don’t care! We love it! “They” we calling for 15-30 inches. I would say we easily reached the ladder.
Want the skinny on the skinny skis? They are cross country skis! Also known as nordic skiing or skate skiing; there are beautiful groomed tracks available in both Vail and Beaver Creek. It’s a good way to get some serious cardio in the winter and a great activity solo or with friends. Our local editor Heather and her husband Kirk made it out on this beautiful bluebird day to enjoy the fresh mountain air, and you can too! For more info on how you can get out on the skinny’s call : Vail Nordic Center at (970) 476-8366 Beaver Creek Nordic Center (970) 754-5313
This is what Vail & Beaver Creek dreams are made of. Snow! Lots and lots of snow! This is a shot a few days ago, and today is a sunshine bluebird day! Our snowpack is above par this year- get out here and make some laps!
One of the quietest places in the Vail Valley is on the banks of the frozen Eagle River. The Eagle River is 77 miles long and filled with trout which brave the cold temperatures all year long! In addition, the Eagle is one of the few un-dammed rivers in the U.S. This scenic landscape is right here in our back yard!

Fresh Powder, Fresh start! What are your new years resolutions? We want to hear what you are looking forward to in the new year!
February 1 – What a day to be on Vail! Thursday was a surprise to most people, as it was to me, since I decided to stay in and work. Oops! 10″ of new snow on top of what we already head. It was to many long-time locals, one of the best days…”EVER”. Some forget that only two winters ago we actually had the best winter ever. But powder days are for short-term memories. Either way, Thursday had knee high powder just waiting to be ridden everywhere and so I obliged. This is Northrim.
