Art by Carlo Trost

“These works float off the wall with a fabric like quality evoking air and breeze”
– Alberto Missana

We are honored to have pieces of Carlo’s carved wood art warming our walls of our Inn. Our newest favorite? “3 Vasi”, three beautiful carved flowers in vases that really do seem to ‘float off the wall’!

Be sure to admire them on your next stay, they are hanging in the heart of the house, our kitchen. Because what kitchen is complete without fresh flowers?! (And these last forever!)

Birds of Prey Is The Place to Be Around Vail Valley This Week

By Caitlin Row

With Thanksgiving in the rear-view mirror, we are heading full force into Vail and Beaver Creek’s holiday season!

This weekend ushers in the first few days of December, and that means Birds of Prey ski racing is returning to Beaver Creek Resort. At the time of this writing, Vail Daily reported that downhill training was being delayed a day but course conditions were “ideal.” Though weather has been pretty warm and sunny as of late, Birds of Prey races are on track to happen this year. That’s good news because it was cancelled last year due to temperatures being too warm. Fingers crossed!

Weather predictions for this week keep changing so check back closer to the weekend. Temperatures are hovering in the high 40s and low 50s through the weekend. At the time of this writing, snow showers are on the books for the evening of Sunday, December 3, and for Monday, December 4.

With that in mind, here are my top picks for Vail Valley This Week.

Vail Mountain Delays Opening to Thanksgiving; Beaver Creek Will Open on Wednesday

The 2017-18 Vail Valley ski season is upon us, folks. Vail Mountain was supposed to open this Friday, November 17. At the time of this writing, it was announced that Opening Day was delayed until Thursday, November 23 (otherwise known as Thanksgiving Day) due to lack of snow. Beaver Creek Resort’s Opening Day is still set for Wednesday, November 22. By delaying Opening Day, it should allow for Vail Mountain to continue to make snow (it’s been a lot colder lately, which… Read Mo

Birds of Prey calendar was announced today!

It’s back: Birds of Prey, America’s Winter Opening events announced for Beaver Creek

After the annual Birds of Prey races at Beaver Creek were canceled in 2016 due to snow conditions — or lack thereof — the America’s Winter Opening festivities went on anyways throughout the village.

This year, the world’s best ski racers are set to return at the end of November, and the off-piste festivities kick off with an ’80s-themed Ski Welcome Party with Ted Ligety, and possibly Steven Nyman making an appearance.

As the races get going each morning, Birds of Prey Way will open up in the village featuring a sponsor expo, kettle curling, kids activities and more.

There’s a Friday Afternoon Club event with a special guest, U.S. Ski Team athlete signings, film showings and much more going on outside of the racing.

After the racers tear up the courses on Birds of Prey, Beers of Prey takes place Saturday, Dec. 2, with winter seasonal tastings including exclusive special releases.
