Pink Vail

By | Vail Real Estate | No Comments

On March 3, Vail will host Pink Vail, an all-mountain ski/snowboard day and concert to benefit breast cancer programs and resources at Shaw Regional Cancer Center, which is located in Edwards.  Similar to a summer breast cancer walk or run, participants ask friends and family to sponsor their day on a “pinkified” Vail Mountain. Participants can track their fundraising progress through the event website: www.pinkvail.com.   Unlike a traditional charity walk, skiers and snowboarders can enjoy the day at their own leisure, knowing they are supporting breast cancer. For those seeking a challenge, don’t miss the Checkpoint Challenge where participants will hunt five famous Vail decks, earning prizes along the way. After a day on the mountain, participants are invited to be a part of the “Celebration Ski Down” where cancer survivors, their family and friends, and those skiing in honor of a loved one will come together at Eagle’s Nest at 4 p.m. before skiing down Simba into Lionshead. This unifying run will kick off the evening in Arrabelle Square with a pink après party, awards ceremony and free concert by Gomez. Gomez, an English indie rock band, has opened for the Dave Matthews Band and Pearl Jam and played…

By | Vail Real Estate | No Comments

Vail has selected a company to build its new gondola. Leitner-Poma will begin construction of Vail’s new gondola in April immediately after the mountain closes from this ski season. The new gondola replacing Vail’s Vista Bahn will be the fastest gondola of its type in the world and will be operational for the first day of the 2012 – 2013 ski season. Leave it to the largest ski resort in the United States to bring this state-of-the-art gondola to its mountain, the first of its kind in North America. The gondola cabins will be designed to carry 10 passengers on heated cushion seats and will carry Wi-Fi access for guests. The speed of 1,200 feet per minute will cut travel time up the mountain from 9 minutes to 7 1/2 minutes. This will offer guests a truly unique experience as the ride up the mountain from Vail Village. Ron Byrne and Associates exclusively offers ski-in / ski-out homes on Vail Mountain as well as opportunities to live within walking distance to Vail’s new gondola.
