This is a fun little infographic piece we did years ago that we are republishing with a new infographic from The Telegraph for your enjoyment. My wife tells me, “Everyone is excited to read about this celebrity stuff,” including her. I am not the star struck type and would rather ski than search out celebs; but, please enjoy the gossip on the stars and pros that visit our Rocky Mountain Ski Towns and Resorts! If you visit Vail, Beaver Creek or Aspen, I am sure you will see someone famous. And of course, if you want to see homes built for celebrities in the Vail Valley, don’t hesitate to call me at 970-331-1110. Thanks and Enjoy! John Helmering

November 19, 2015 Vail, CO – Early season ski conditions are looking really strong with two plus feet of snow having blanketed Vail and Beaver Creek Ski Mountains and another storm on the way tomorrow. There are also some new attractions in Vail Village and Beaver Creek so we thought this would be a great time to let you know that there are plenty of other things to do in the mountains of the Vail Valley this winter than just ski.
Here are ten things to do in Vail and Beaver Creek that will allow you to enjoy the natural beauty and refined influences of the Vail Valley:
1. Shopping – In Vail Village and Beaver Creek you will find some of the coolest boutique stores and local shopping venues. The streets of both Vail and Beaver Creek Village are exploding with merchandise that will attract your attention and make you smile. No where will you find a more diverse offering of regional Rocky Mountain wears and unique gifts from Bavarian Europe and beyond. Even if your not a shopper, the ambiance and people watching alone is worth getting out there on the plazas.
2. Dinning – The Vail Valley is known for its world class dinning and now with the recent completion of several new five star hotels and mixed used residential buildings, you will find a plethora of dinning options to choose from. Vail’s Dinning Guide
3. Take an “Alpen Glo” ride in the new Vail Gondola or the Lionshead Gondola. Whichever Gondola in Vail you decide, you will find warm and cozy mountain top restaurants complete with greeters that have information on the daily events and on-mountain happenings.
4. Take a tour of Vail Village. The Colorado Ski Museum hosts walking tours of Vail Village on Tuesdays and Fridays. You will learn about the fifty year history of the ski area, the more famous developments and the pioneers that created this world class Rocky Mountain destination.
6. Take a Horse Drawn Sleigh Ride – Reencounter the Rocky Mountain past with a horse drawn sleigh ride at Bearcat Stables.
7. Fly Fishing – Colorado River fly fishing can be fantastic during the late winter and early spring months. There is nothing like catching a big Rainbow trout in a drift boat while the snow is gently falling on the river’s edge. Contact Pete Mott at TroutTrickers.com
8. Hot Air Balloons – If your sense of adventure is flying high over the ski areas and mountain tops, winter Ballooning is for you. Merlin from Camelot Balloons has been around for many years and they are the local experts at mountain ballooning.
9. Take a Spa Day. The Vail Valley features some of the most awesome spas and exotic treatments in the country – Vail Valley Spas. If you are looking for natural hot springs, there are a variety of venues that can satisfy your natural outdoor cravings although you will have to travel a bit out the Valley to get to most of these Colorado Hot Springs.
10. Ice Skating, Bowling or a Movie. There are several outdoor ice skating rinks located in the Villages and plaza areas of the Vail Valley that are open to the public. In addition, the Vail Valley offers two bowling alleys and three different movie theaters including a dine in movie house called CineBistro.

Gypsum, CO – Colorado’s very first woody biomass facility started delivering electricity to the Vail Valley today! This is a huge accomplishment for the entire region as this renewable energy project will use pine beetle kill timber for its main source of fuel; helping to rid the surrounding National Forests of serious wild fire hazards.
A Big Congratulations goes out to Holy Cross Electric, Eagle Valley Clean Energy, West Range Reclamation, Eagle County and the Town of Gypsum, for working together in this endeavor. The Vail Valley now leads the way in Colorado with its renewable energy efforts and forest health concerns. Never has a Colorado utility worked with the private sector to create a commercial grade biomass project; especially one that generates base-load renewable power. Holy Cross Electric and Eagle Valley Clean Energy successfully created this local alliance several years ago and now the surreal has become a reality. This facility will produce a bit more than 11 Megawatts of power; 10 MW of which will be distributed locally by Holy Cross Energy; enough to power nearly 10,000 residential units per year.
