It has been a wonderful fall here in the Vail Valley!  The changing aspen trees were magnificent, Halloween was a week of fun and trick-or-treating, and today we had our first dusting of snow throughout the Valley floor.  The mountains have seen their share of white, but when those first snowflakes fall on our front lawns, it gets us all so excited for the season ahead... winter! We are entering the much anticipated 2014-2015 winter season, where the FIS World Alpine Ski Championships will take place in Vail and Beaver Creek.  Our valley is alive with excitement as the final touches are being put on the race course and finish areas.  Such a fun time to be living here, and a GREAT time to visit! Book your trips to the Vail Valley early this season, it's going to be a good one!
