    Colorado River Ranch
    Brenda Himelfarb | Features | July 12, 2019

    Contrary to popular belief, no one tames the Wild West we can only learn to live in harmony with Mother Nature as she graes us with her bounty, entrances us with her beauty and humbles us with her power. The early homesteaders were seeking to do just that — some succeeded, many failed. But the […]

It’s a place that lets kids and adults love on horses, helping bring them back to life. And it seems, once someone sets foot onto this expansive property, sees the abused […]

    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 , Features |

    Mother-daughter relationships can be diverse and complex yet one of the most significant, as well. They can also be the trickiest to manage. While some mothers are best friends, others see each other once or twice a year. Some face their conflicts; others avoid it at all costs. And still others spar regularly.Like any relationship, […]

    HOMEGROWN ATHELETES
    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 […]

    Goggles and Gold
    Brenda Himelfarb | Featured Stories , Features | February 22, 2018

    Okay, we’ll admit fine jewelry and casual skiwear isn’t a trend. But it could be. Don’t ‘ya think? The radiant colors of this season’s skiwear combined with all sorts of jewelry is quite a chic look and might just wake up the latent trendsetter in each of us.     So, why not just go […]

    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. And like Diana became England’s revered princess, this fresh-faced young woman would become our pride […]

We have decided to take a risk. We are writing about a subject which might be considered too serious by many a glossy magazine. But, whether you live here or are visiting, we hoped that you would want to know more about a very important institution in our Valley, and the incredible work it does here and […]

SalvationArmy
ken | Volunteer - Vail Valley | January 3, 2012

The holiday season and the Salvation Army are synonymous. Throughout the season bell ringers and red kettles can be seen all over the country collecting money for less fortunate individuals. Some volunteers even sing Christmas carols, play musical instruments or sometimes bring their playful pets to garner attention. The tradition began in 1891 when Captain […]

RailJam

In 2009 a small group of young people – age twenty-something  – put on its first snowboard competition in Beaver Creek. This was not a race for a medal, but rather a race to see who could raise the most money for breast cancer that would then be donated to the Vail Breast Cancer Awareness […]
