Posted by on Apr 6, 2016 in Community, Wellness & Yoga, MTN Town Magazine | 0 comments

The 5th year of Pink Vail was officially a favorite. Nearly 3,000 vibrantly pink participants, including 211 cancer survivors, took over Vail Mountain on Saturday for the world’s biggest ski day to conquer cancer – ALL cancers. With perfect snow conditions, live-music all day and nary a cloud in the sky, it was truly incredible. We were so excited to be a part of Pink Vail, it reminded us why we fight so hard to stay alive and that finding a cure is so very necessary.  We heard amazing stories from individuals who are fighting cancer, stories from those who have survived and stories about those who have not.

Loveland Ski Area – We LOVE this Place!

Posted by on Apr 6, 2016 in Skiing & Snowboarding, Treks & Travels, MTN Town Magazine | 0 comments

You see it when you are preparing to head through the Eisenhower Tunnel- smooth open runs that reach for the sky and quickly disappear from your view as you enter the long tunnel to Summit County. Some of the best and most frequent snowfalls grace “The Love” each season and are often overlooked by many heading towards the West side of the Continental Divide. Here is a better view of something you might have passed by. Loveland Ski Area’s history is long and interesting with a birthday that celebrated 75 years in the 2012/13 season. Their history begins in 1936 when a portable rope tow operation was installed by J.C. Blickensderfer as...

Briar Rose Chophouse

Posted by on Mar 17, 2016 in Restaurant Reviews | 0 comments

The definition of a chophouse is a restaurant that specializes in steaks, chops, and similar fare. The question that does not get answered is what makes a great Chophouse? There is more to that definition in my book. A great chophouse incorporates a well run establishment with a beautiful interior of wood paneling, rich fabrics, white table cloths adorned with, sparkling wine glasses, candles and utensils that include thick steak knives. The menu should be stacked with a variety of well aged, choice and prime cuts of beef, pork and lamb. In addition seafood, salads and a selection of a la carte accompaniments make that menu complete. Lastly but not...

Crazy Mountain Brewing Company

Posted by on Mar 17, 2016 in Restaurant Reviews | 0 comments

There is a brewery in just about every town here in the Colorado mountain communities. It is pretty darn cool to be able to drink a little something that came from each area and maybe it is extra cool that you can consume a true Vail Valley product and get a little of the areas DNA in you. Crazy Mountain Brewing Company has some amazing beers and the new Shane McConkey brew just grabbed our attention. To me it says something about the brewery and how their owners operate. The brewery was founded by Kevin and Marisa Selvy in 2010, after working as a brewer with Anchor Brewing in San...

Opus Hut – Ophir Colorado

Posted by on Mar 8, 2016 in Treks & Travels, Hike, MTN Town Magazine | 0 comments

If you haven’t traveled into the Colorado San Juan mountains it’s time to plan a trip. The Opus Hut is like a shining star of Nazareth perched in the middle of their craggy peaks. Each year my girlfriend Chance and I pick two adventure-based trips to conquer together. Typically these trips involve some type of challenging wilderness experience, like desert climbing, river or mountain based travel, but we had not discussed a winter off-piste ski trip since College. In my small mountain community of Ophir Colorado my neighbor, Bob Kingsley had a formidable dream of acquiring a mining claim and building a ski hut. After much research with the county assessor’s office...
