Vail Resorts Seniority Banquet – Kim Nottingham Celebrates 30 Years!


2013-04-04 19.47.38Thursday was a special night for us as Kim Nottingham (my lovely wife) celebrated her 30th anniversary with Vail Resorts along with about 500 of her closest friends at the Marriott Hotel in Vail.

I’m continually amazed at her work ethic, intelligence, patience, and management skills.  Maybe she will make 40, who knows.

52% Say Buying A Home Family’s Best Investment – Rasmussen Reports


Sunday, November 25, 2012

Most Americans think buying a home is still a family’s best investment, but they don’t think now’s a good time to sell.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 52% of American Adults say buying a home is the best investment a family can make. Twenty-six percent (26%) disagree, while 22% are not sure.  (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 American Adults nationwide was conducted on November 17-18, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Fieldwork for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Beaver Creek confirmed as finish for Stage 4 of USA Pro Cycling Challenge in August


We are really excited about having the pro racers finish in our little Beaver Creek Village.  I’m not sure exactly where the finish line will be but I’ll be up here to watch the climax.

Contenders for a stage win during the fourth day of competition at the 2012 USA Pro Cycling Challenge will need to remember to keep some leg and lung power reserves in the tank as Beaver Creek Resort today identified the route for its Stage 4 mountaintop finish. The stage will take place on Thursday, Aug. 23, day four of the week-long 2012 edition.

The day’s stage, a 97.2 mile route to Beaver Creek from Aspen, includes 75 miles of climbing at altitudes of 9,000 feet and above, plus a sprint competition, all before landing at the base of Beaver Creek for the final climb to the mountaintop finish.

As the riders approach the finish, they will take a sharp left from Highway 6, dashing south through the Beaver Creek Welcome Gate on their 2.5 mile final climb that rises almost 1,000 feet to the finish line, which will be located just beyond the skier bridge at 8,100 feet in Beaver Creek Village.

“Beaver Creek’s mountain top finish promises to provide not only thrilling racing action,” offered Doug Lovell, chief operating officer of Beaver Creek Resort and president of the Beaver Creek Resort Company board, “but we also expect that this will be one of the largest crowds of the mountain stages, given our close proximity to the Front Range. With so many avid cycling fans in our community, we’re incredibly excited to host this stage, while also providing race fans with the resort’s signature hospitality and an enhanced Expo area that will contain events and activities leading up to and following the race. This is a day not to be missed in the Vail Valley.”

Beaver Creek Mountain will provide a stunning backdrop as riders climb past the Beaver Creek Golf Club and private homes, with cheering spectators lining every inch of the route. Shortly before the finish line, the route will narrow and riders will need to remain focused on the last 100 yards, crossing the uphill finish line near the Centennial Station skier drop-off point.

“Given the location of the final climb in the grand scheme of the day’s race,” explained Ceil Folz, president of the Vail Valley Foundation, “it will provide not only exciting racing action, but it will also definitely have an impact on who emerges from the stage with the leader jersey.”

Complete details for where to watch Beaver Creek’s Stage 4 finish, events throughout the day and race-day logistics will be released in the weeks ahead.
