If you're looking for a resort lifestyle that includes the rich and famous along with a mountain big enough to satisfy even when the lift lines are long, Vail might be the place for you. Though small, Vail Village resort offers bars, boutiques and restaurants high end enough to compete with the biggest wallets. While the glamor factor is high, it’s still laid back enough and less pretentious than Colorado’s other glitzy resort, Aspen. Vail Mountain also might just have the best terrain in the state. Wide open and immense, the back bowls are legend, especially on a powder day. Vail Valley stretches along the I-70 corridor offering an easy escape to parts beyond to explore. A popular spot to see and be seen – Vail can sometimes be awash in tourists. However, the long valley gives you options to get away from it all. Working for Vail resorts also gives you entre to a variety of resorts; Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Keystone in Colorado, Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood in the Lake Tahoe area of California and Nevada, Canyons in Park City, Afton Alps in Minnesota and Mt. Brighton in Michigan.
Tracey Flower happened upon Vail via serendipity in 2005 and has made it her home since. Through hard work and determination, she has created all the elements required to craft a lifestyle affording a rewarding work life balance in the mountains. Tracey and I talk about what makes Vail her ideal home.
