    ALL THAT GLITTERS
    Brenda Himelfarb | Featured Stories , Features | December 9, 2018

    The word “rainbow” can be a bit overwhelming, but many of this year’s festive jewelry collections, which are beaming with colored stones mixed, at times, with gold are meant to intrigue the most savvy collector. Cuff gold bracelets are still-and will always be hot. There are luscious solo chains. Bold mixes of all sorts of […]

    Brenda Himelfarb | Featured Stories | December 8, 2018

    So, it’s not a surprise that some home grown athletes, as well as those who came to Vail to train—essentially “newbies” represented the United States in the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. It was their once-in-a-lifetime chance to cap off years of training—and they did not let us down! In addition to Vonn […]

    Becoming Dorothy Hamill
    Brenda Himelfarb | Featured Stories , Features | December 8, 2017

    In the beginning, we were drawn to her eyes. Those bashful eyes, much like the pure, innocent look that we saw in the eyes of Diana, Princess of Wales, when she was first introduced to the world by Prince Charles.

    Be good to People – The original kindness company
    Heather Hower | Culture in the Vail Valley , Featured Stories , Features | July 5, 2017

    It’s not scientifically proven but it is some kind of universal fact that while wearing a “Be Good To People” shirt, it’s hard to be mean.

    What do you love about the mountains? Chances are it’s skiing, snowboarding, rafting, kayaking, fishing, paddle boarding, hunting, hiking, wildflowers, bug-free camping, cool summers, biking, rock climbing, wildlife, majestic pines – and not to mention – fresh air and clean water.
