Colorado Ski News

 

 

Posted on: 17 Nov 2015

Colorado is a skier’s paradise, and there are many new attractions and fantastic events in this winter wonderland for 2015-2016.  

Vail, Colorado

The Remedy, a new bar at the Four Seasons in Vail

Vail’s newest food and cocktail destination this season, The Remedy, located inside the Four Seasons Resort & Residences Vail offers a sophisticated yet relaxed hangout for locals and visitors to unwind, socialise and imbibe. Inventive cocktails are served alongside a seasonally-inspired culinary selection paying homage to Colorado locally-foraged produce.

Aspen, Colorado

Aspen Skiing Company replaced and realigned the High Alpine lift on Snowmass during the summer, installing snowmaking equipment on two existing trails, and implementing additional trail and glade construction projects. The realignments of the lift and the additional trail work and glading will vastly improve skiers and riders experience in the High Alpine pod on Snowmass. The new alignment will allow guests to ski from the Rock Island, AMF and the Cirque trails without having to drop to the lower mountain to access the High Alpine area. Also, skiers and riders can now easily access the Upper Green Cabin trail without having to cross along a flat traverse.  Cost of the capital improvement is estimated at $8 million and the new high speed quad will decrease the ride time down to 5.6 minutes from the previous 11 minutes. The new lift and other improvements are scheduled to debut for the 2015/16 ski and ride season.

Beaver Creek Village, Colorado

The dedicated on-site concierge offers instant assistance with lift ticket and pass purchases, as well as dinner and activity guidance and reservations. Priority access to SaddleRidge Restaurant – renowned for ski-in fine dining during lunch and dinner – is also a distinct benefit. Privileges such as V.I.P. parking and slope side equipment check lavish guests with a seamless, tranquil holiday experience.
