Good news for trying to keep up (survive?) with your kids on the slopes. Yeah, you really can teach an old dog new tricks.
“I’m not so sure about this.” That’s the thought playing in my head as I step up to the thick blue mats inside Woodward at Copper’s vaulted space, known as the Barn. Am I nervous about flying down a 41-degree slope of synthetic snow into a seven-foot-deep pit filled with blue foam blocks? Well, yes. Am I nervous about sliding down said slope in front of a dozen 10- to 16-year-old park rats? Totally.
This Colorado resort's ever-growing restaurant scene makes return visits worthwhile—and delicious.
Leonora, Vail Village
The space may look the same, but the menu, and more importantly, the experience, is vastly different. Reopening in December in what used to be Block 16 inside Vail’s Sebastian Hotel, Leonora, name after artist Leonora Carrington who created many of original sculptures found throughout the hotel, is a wonderful surprise.
