Whistler's Reality TV Connection

Well, I realize by posting this I'm actually confessing a guilty pleasure...that of my love for reality tv's Hell's Kitchen with Chef Gordon Ramsay.
I have a great job in a great industry and have had the chance to experience more than once what is, forks-down, one of the best ski resorts for dining and nightlife--Whistler. (Oh, and they ski there too!)
But I do have to admit a bit of envy for those Hell's Kitchen contestants. Why? Well, because they are competing for a truly incredible prize--a head chef position at Araxi, one of Whistler's best known restaurants.
A sweet prize, for sure...but consider too that Whistler is playing host to the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, which the Hell's Kitchen winner will have a front row seat for, and now you'll know why I'm green with envy, just like an undercooked brussel sprout. :o)

Ski Valle Nevado this summer!

My client just recently returned from a week in Valle Nevado. She had nothing but good things to say! A fantastic trip...snowboarding was awesome, had snow the entire time and the service was excellent from everyone. Her only negative comment was the cost of snacks and water....she suggested picking up these things before heading up to Valle Nevado.....Water alone was US12.00 for a medium sized bottle. Check out the pic of her friend....awesome shot!

4th of July in Breckenridge!

I love living in Breckenridge! One of my favorite holidays is 4th of July and Breckenridge has a great celebration. We had a parade that last for about an hour and a half with everything from the Budweiser Clydesdale horses, soldiers, firemen, policeman and enough candy to fill the bag of a child with more candy than they get on halloween. We have the Firecracker 50 bike race. After the parade it was fun to go down by the river walk and enjoy some food and drinks while the kids played in the bouncy houses, obstacle courses and got their face painted. It took my breath away when sitting by the river and looking at the mountains with snow still on them. I sometimes take for granted of the beautiful place I live.
After all that fun we went to a friends and had a cookout and later watched one of the best firework shows Breckenridge has ever hosted. We have so much fun stuff to do and explore for this summer. Email if you would like to come see Breckenridge this summer or if you are already excited about skiing I can help with that as well. I hope to see everyone in Breckenridge.

What a great time at summer solstice in Breckenridge! Watermelon eating, seed spitting, pie eating, tug o war (girls versus boys, chicks win!), miniature golf, and fire engine parade made for lots of fun. Breckenridge in full on Summer rocks!!

Ski Training During The Summer With Mountain Biking

Keeping fit for ski season during the summer is easy with mountain biking. The balance you need to navigate down the mountain is similar to the balance needed to ski. And its a great way to enjoy the beauty of the mountains. I thought I was done with mountain biking after taking a nasty head over handle bars fall last summer while vacationing at
Sun Valley. But now that it is summer again in the mountains I can't wait to get my bike ready for some trail riding.
