Disclaimer:  This is all anecdotal opinion.    The snow is here in earnest. This is a fact not opinion. Snow brings skiers and skiers are our bread and butter here in Vail.  We love our guests.  Please come to Vail the skiing is great.  The mountain has opened up at least 500 acres today.  The rest of the Mountain will open as the snow continues to fall.   Just speaking for me personally, I was a little worried about this season.  As you might have heard the economy isn't doing so well.  But I remained guarded but optimistic.  Then the real doom and gloom started.  The sky is falling, the sky is falling.  Well now the only thing falling out of the sky is snow, and that makes me feel good.   When I walk down Bridge Street I see a typical Thanksgiving crowd.  I see the shops crowded.  Gra...

Vail, Beaver Creek, Bachelor Gulch and neighboring luxury ski resort areas may be impacted with school breaks for Christmas and Easter changing this season.  Why?  Because school breaks are the main driver for family oriented vacations (those where there are school age children in the home).  Family vacations drive business to many industries such as hotels, restaurants, shopping centers, recreation areas and real estate offices.  Active families are a popular demographic in Vail and Beaver Creek (for that matter, in Summit and Eagle counties).The other major impact from schools starting early each year is that it drains a lot of the seasonal labor pool. A number of states have already been persuaded to go back to the more traditional late August starts. This has become an issue because...

When driving, hiking or biking around Vail, Beaver Creek, Arrowhead or Bachelor Gulch (yes, everywhere) you cannot help but see the changes in the lodgepole trees.  Changes not from the fall foliage changes, but from alive to not-so-alive.  Yes the pine-beetle issues are causing the landscape to certainly have a different look.  Not to worry as plans are underway. There are working crews that are part of the multi-year project called the Vail Valley Forest Health Plan working around the valley.  Their mission is to remove dead and dying trees from the Vail Valley forests.  Why?  This is being done in an effort to reduce the severity of potential future wildfires. In 2007, trees will be cut on 15 acres of town of Vail land and a whopping 174 acres of national forest. Work will take place...

Atentos al Mercado Consistente de Vail y Beaver Creek A lo contrario del resto del mercado en los Estados Unidos, o por lo menos, de la mayoria del mercado en los Estados Unidos, es casi increible pensar que el mercado de Vail y Beaver Creek siga en una creciente tan consistente. Ojo, la palabra importante aquí es "consistencia'. Para todos nuestros clientes de Puerto Rico, Mexico y hasta Miami, la inversion en este mercado de 2 das casas, condominios y "fractional ownerships" son unas muy solidas. Según el ultimo analisis de mercado que hizo "Land Guarantee Company" El mes de enero, febrero, marzo y abril han traido mas de 900 millones de dolares en cierres al Valle de Vail. Solamente el mes de abril del 2007, por ejemplo, en comparacion con el mes de abril del 2006, trajo un crecimien...
