Here we are again at the beginning of another ski season!? Vail Mountain is set to open Friday, November 21st for the 2008-2009 ski season.? People are trying to decide what to do that day; ski?& play golf, ski & fly fish, go mountain biking??? It's that strange time of year that sometimes happens when fall makes a resurgence and the snow is yet to really take control.? If you do go skiing, which of course you should, be prepared for nice weather and lots of people.
Looking at the extended forecast, we expect to see mild weather continue for?a bit before winter shows up in force again.? It may turn out to be just like last year, which was a record setting year for great snow here in the Vail Valley.? Beaver Creek is expected to open a week after Vail, but we'll see.? Time to get your last fix for golfing and other sports that require you see the ground, because hopefully that snow is just around the corner.
Those of us that live here in the Vail Valley are often looking for great places to eat that are fun for the whole family.? And Minturn, CO has a handful of fantastic places that fit the bill.? Kid friendly and reasonably priced, the following places offer something a little different and are worth the trip.
The Minturn Saloon:? A local favorite for generations!? Also famous as a destination after skiing the Minturn Mile!? Don't miss?the margaritas, chips & salsa, and?roaring fire after skiing! (970) 827-5954?
Mango's Mountain Grill:? Although?a few miles?up the road from Minturn in Red Cliff, Mango's is worth the trip.? Serving an eclectic menu, Mango's is fun for everyone (my son especially likes to play w/ the train table upstairs).? Come for food, music, &?drinks; Mango's has it all including a shuttle so you don't have to drive!? (970) 827-9109
