Council kills Lionshead parking garage redo

In a last-minute move for that particular Vail Town Council, (see related election story) the town’s elected officials decided to kill a $900 million plan to build two luxury hotels, shopping and other amenities in a re-do of the Lionshead parking garage last night. Council members Tuesday said no to a development option agreement between Vail and Open Hospitality Partners, the group behind the redevelopment idea. “I was disappointed the deal didn’t go through,� said Mark Masinter, a representative for the company. “But I love Vail and I’ll still be here if something breaks.� Vail councilwoman Margaret Rogers was among those in favor of terminating the relationship, saying she feels it’s better to keep town’s options open rather than tie-up property.

In times of building bust, McHatten Creek Ranch booms With five new homes going under construction this week, McHatten Creek Ranch is moving forward with developing the newest phase of Buckhorn Valley. Long time locals Dave Garton, Don Dotson (Golf Resort Homes), Rob Verratti & Brian Desmond, (DV, LLC) for ER – Bau USA, have signed on to build five more single family homes starting at $350,000. This new team of builders has had a great deal of experience down valley having developed homes in Buckhorn Valley, Chatfield Corners, Cotton Ranch, Eagle Ranch, Silt and Garfield County. “The climate is turning for real estate and now is the time to build and buy� says Dave Garton of Garton Real Estate. “Buckhorn Valley, comprised of the first three phases of this development, is holding strong in the marketplace with only 5 foreclosures in the past eight years and property listings remain limited with only 4 resale homes on the market.� Only 2 of the 4 homes for sale in Buckhorn Valley have reduced their original asking price. Buckhorn Valley resident Sam Gale believes that, for locals who are looking to stay and be able to own for less then they would rent, McHatten Creek Ranch is a wonderful opportunity. “The $350,000 price point, no deed restrictions and mortgage protection make these homes a great investment for the future when property values surge again,� says Gale. “Each week more and more people are coming through the sales office looking at layouts and lots. They have definitely shopped the market before buying. When we ask them why they chose McHatten Creek Ranch the standard reply is that they compared prices with several other developments valley-wide and just couldn’t find the values or the prices that McHatten Creek Ranch offers. The ability to pick their finishes and property layout has also been a driving factor.� The building teams feel that moving forward at this time helps to put some life back into the local economy

and provide hope for those who want to stay here long term and own a home they can afford grow their family in and benefit from the investment potential “As we build the future of west county living, we want locals to have the opportunity to benefit from the current market place and the low cost of the homes. Prices like this will not come around anytime soon so we encourage people to take the move forward now with building their future� says Dave Garton. For more information and photos of completed homes and homes under construction visit For a site tour of the properties, the sales office is open seven days a week from 9 to 5 p.m.

Reefer regs rolled tighter in Buzz Kill County, Colo. By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer The county’s reefer regulations were rolled a little tighter yesterday when the commissioners said no, you cannot grow as much dope as you want in order to sell it to reefer retailers. Reefer retailers, or “marijuana dispensaries,� as their called by the squares of the industry, sell it to people suffering from some ongoing medical condition, such a chronic lack of really good dope. Da Man snuffed out the Body Politic’s buzz by proclaiming that if you’re not a card-carrying reefer recipient, or a licensed reefer retailer, you cannot legally grow dope. If you are, you can only grow three plants per patient, which sent a few reefer retailers scrambling to find Jack’s magic beanstalk beans – you know, so they could grow really mondo beyondo sized plants. Actually, it was the Colorado Court of Appeals who rolled out that ruling. The county commissioners just went along, like you knew they would because they’re all about buzz kill. The Court of Appeals ruled that if you are a true horticulturist – as in, “You can lead a whore to culture but you can’t make her think,� you can have six living plants, but only three at a time that can actually be harvested. That’s for both the caregiver and the patient – herby referred to as the doper and the dopee. And in the Clamping Down On Capitalism Department, the Court of Appeals also said that reefer retailers can only have as much pot on hand as they need to “address a debilitating condition� that their patients might be suffering – such as a chronic lack of really good dope. Last July, Da Man in the person of the Colorado Board of Health ruled reefer retailers cannot be limited to only five patients, or be required to perform “significant� care for their patients beyond addressing their patients’ chronic lack of really good chronic. The Court of Appeals said, Dear Dudes on the Board of Health, the court will go along with losing the limit on the number of patients a caregiver can have. But you have to do more than sell pot to people.� In other words, you’re not a true caregiver if “marijuana is itself the substance of the relationship,� the Court of Appeals ruled, although most of us have enjoyed relationships based on a lot less. You have to “address a debilitating condition,� such as a chronic lack of really good dope. “The enabling legislation stated that the dispensary needed to be the growers,� said Eagle County Commissioner Jon Stavney. “It’s not open season for growing.� Really righteous reefer regs The county’s latest buzz kill reefer regulation is just another way Da Man is busting the budding medical marijuana industry.

Breck legalizes weed (for everyone)


In Breckenridge yesterday, a vast majority of voters chose to decriminalize possession of less than one ounce of marijuana, as well as paraphernalia. The revised regulation goes into effect Jan. 1, 2010, and applies to individuals ages 21 and older, who will now be able to posses the substance even if they don’t possess a medical marijuana card.

1143 Capital Street, Eagle

In Eagle County, Da Man is telling you that you can’t sell marijuana to kids in Sunday School, or within 500 feet of them. Basically, reefer retailers have to be at least 500 feet from any structure in which human beings maintain a pulse. Those pulse maintenance facilities will include any “residence, school, church, child care facility, alcohol or drug rehabilitation facility, public park, fairground, recreation center or any publicly owned or maintained building open for use to the general public.� Your reefer retailer must also be a minimum of 500 feet from any single family residence, multi-family residence, duplex residence, townhome, patio home or mobile home. I know, dude, it’s extreme geographical bummerhood. But buck up bong boy, because there’s more. Your reefer retailer also has to be a minimum of 500 feet from any public or private school. And, according to Da Man, your reefer retailer cannot be in a moveable, mobile or temporary structure, which pretty much eliminates a van in the back of the parking lot. Da Man is also not going to allow reefer retailing as a home occupation or home business, although that’s how Microsoft’s Bill Gates and Apple’s Steve Jobs started. So it’s pretty obvious Da Man is determined to stomp on your budding business buzz. And if you ever doubted that Da Man was all about the money, check this out: “All medical marijuana dispensary facilities shall have an active, up to date State of Colorado sales tax number which shall be provided to the county.� The next thing you know, Da Man will be telling you that you can’t open before 9 a.m. and you have to close no later than 7 p.m. No, WAIT! Dude, that’s what it says right here! And they want signs warning that reefer retailers are breaking the law if they retail reefer for non-medical purposes, such as a chronic lack of really good dope. Da Man then dives headlong into hypocrisy by telling you that you can’t hang out and loiter in a reefer retail shop, but at the same time Da Man tells you that you can’t drive away after receiving tender care for your debilitating medical condition, such as a chronic lack of really good dope.

Last chance, first class Tonight’s Sapphire menu features renowned winemaker For one night only tonight, Sapphire Restaurant and Oyster Bar will feature a unique menu paired with the wines of Daryl Groom, who has spent decades working for famous Australian and California vineyards. “We first tasted and loved Daryl Groom’s wines before they were available in Colorado,” said Susan Fritz, who owns the restaurant with her husband Joel. “We kept Groom in Sapphire and served their wines when sat down to a special family or friend’s dinner.” Groom has made wines for Penfolds in Australia, Gary Farrell, Wild Horse Winery and Geyser Peak in California, where he was recognized with over two dozen national and international awards. In Australia, Groom spent 16 years at Penfolds, where he was senior red winemaker, concocting Grange Hermitage. Groom’s 1986 Penfolds Grange earned a rating of 99 from influential wine critic Robert Parker. Grange is made predominantly from Shiraz, and considered one of the top wines in the world, said Fritz. At auction, Grange has sold for more than $60,000 a bottle. In 1996, the Groom’s bought the land next door to the Penfolds’ Grange vineyards and planted 42 acres of Shiraz. Groom joined Alexander Valley’s Geyser Peak Winery in 1989, where he brought the winery more than two dozen national and international awards including “Winemaker of the Year,” and “Win-

ery of the Year.” When Geyser Peak was acquired by Beam Wine Estates, Groom furthered his experience throughout Northern and Central California. Groom said he was introduced to winemaking at home, and went into the business to create some sibling rivalry. “I was the youngest of four brothers and had to do something they would be envious of,” he said. The 2009 highest rated Australian Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc shows good acidity but is soft and pleasurable to drink, said Fritz. “Groom blends separate lots of grapes from distinct parts of his vineyard in Adelaide,” she said. The 2007 Groom Barossa Valley Shiraz is a dark, beautifully structured wine, silky-textured and delicious, adds Fritz. In addition to Groom’s wine, Sapphire will serve a Lobster Martini, Butter Poached Cucumber and Tomato. Lemon Truffle Hollandaise, along with Goat Cheese Mousaka and Olive Demi Glace. The menu will also offer an Open Faced Duck “Tamale,” Grilled Colorado Lamb Chops, Confit Picadillo and Mascarpone and warm Berry Compote and Dolce de Latte Ice Cream. The special event will begin at 6 p.m. tonight at the restaurant, located in Vail Village. For directions and information, call 476-2828 or visit sapphire

Wine Maker Dinner Wednesday, November 4th

Spend the evening with World renowned Australian Wine Maker, Daryl Groom Sapphire Restaurant in Vail will provide the food paired with a selection of Groom Wines. Ron Rasnic, Eagle County’s solid waste director, at the county’s $5.2 million recycling facility, which is being built at the county’s landfill site. It’s funded from fees the landfill charges to dump stuff at the dump, not payments directly from taxes. Avery Cunliffe photo.

Recycling center nears completion Regional facility could attract business from other counties By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Eagle County’s massive new recycling machines are not green, they’re blue, which is a disappointment to those of us who wanted to spout puns about the green machine. The $5.2 million recycling center is under construction at the county’s landfill, and should start operating after the first of the year. It’s a 14,000 square foot square foot building housing machines that will separate and bale recyclable materials. The money to build and operate it is generated by business at the landfill, not from the tax money the county collects, said Ron Rasnic, Eagle County’s solid waste director. The county’s landfill is funded by tipping fees - the money people pay to dump stuff at the dump – so named because trucks tip their beds back and dump their loads. So salute the next Vail Honeywagon truck you see. The landfill business is off a little with the decrease in construction, but they’re in sound financial shape, Rasnic said. When the county commissioners gave the project the green light, summer of 2008, recyclable plastic bottles were worth $570 a ton and diesel fuel was $5 a gallon. Neither is true any longer.

Colored plastic, such as detergent bottles, sells for $260 per ton. Newsprint sells for $70 a ton, up from not being worth the paper it’s printed on last year. Glass isn’t worth much. It’s made of sand and we’re not running out of sand. “Recyclable material is a commodity and commodities can be volatile. We knew that. We’re taking the long-term approach,” Rasnic said. “Prices have bounced a little. We’re hopeful as the economy recovers around the country, that the markets for these commodities will also recover.” As consumers increase the amount of recyclable stuff they recycle, mountains of it land in the landfill. Rasnic’s crew separates it as best they can, bales it and trucks it to recycling centers in Grand Junction, Denver, Silverthorne and Grand County. Surrounding counties have already expressed interest in bringing their stuff to Eagle County. Pitkin and Garfield counties might be in. The county already collects recyclable material in Gypsum, Minturn, Eagle and Edwards. Both of the valley’s major waste haulers, Vail Honeywagon and Waste Management, pick up recycled materials and haul them to the landfill. It’s a global economy, even for recycled stuff. Most of the material goes to Asia where factories turn it into consumer goods like toys, then ship them back to the U.S.

part of MSG Entertainment’s third annual “Minds That Move The World” speakers series. The event -- billed as “The Hottest Ticket in Political History” -- will take place on Feb. 25, 2010, at 8 p.m., according to organizers. Clinton, a Democrat who served two terms starting in 1993, and Bush, a Republican, who also served two consecutive terms starting in 2001, will reportedly engage in an “uncensored, unedited and unpredixctable” debate. The moderator has not been named. Tickets range from $60 to a whopping $1,250. Tickets go on sale this Sunday.

Tree-friendly health care proposal

After months spent criticizing Democrats’ health overhaul plans, House Republicans have produced a draft proposal of their own. It’s much shorter and focuses on bringing down costs rather than extending coverage to nearly all Americans. A 230-page draft was obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press. A spokeswoman for Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, said changes were still being made before the bill would be finalized in time to offer as an alternative when Democrats begin floor debate on their bill, possibly at the end of this week. The bill leaves out a number of the key features of the Democrats’ 1,990-page legislation, such as new requirements for employers to insure their employees and for nearly all Americans to purchase insurance. It also doesn’t block insurers from denying coverage to people with pre-existing health conditions, as Democrats would do. Instead, the Republican plan increases incentives for people to use health savings accounts, caps noneconomic jury awards in medical malpractice cases at $250,000, provides various incentives to states with the aim of driving down premium costs and allows health insurance to be sold across state lines.

tax troubles are forcing him to sell his sprawling Southern Nevada estate, according to the Las Vegas Sun. Cage is said to owe the IRS over $6.6 million in back taxes and other debts dating back to 2002. The 45-year-old star reportedly owes a grand total of $6,617,550.84. The staggering figure is the combination of three older federal liens – $70,190.05 from 2002; $179,738.23 from 2003; and $110,617.56 in 2004 – and $6,257,005 in back taxes from 2007. In addition to the IRS debts, East West Bank alleges Cage owes $2 million for a loan that was extended in August, writes the Sun’s Melissa Arseniuk. Cage is now suing his former business manager of eight years, Samuel Levin, whom he reportedly says led him “down a path toward financial ruin.” Cage’s $10 million Las Vegas mega mansion is just one of the failed would-be investments the actor is looking to sell in hopes of settling his staggering debts and reining in his expenses, writes Arseniuk. His similarly-priced Bel-Air home is also for sale, as is his $12 million Rhode Island residence. Cage earned $40 million between June 2008 and June 2009 and has a net worth of $38 million according to Forbes magazine, reports the Sun.

They have the cash - they got to speed up.� According to the Journal, Google’s cash and shortterm investments are up 53 percent to $22 billion in the third quarter from a year ago, accounting for 58 percent of its total assets. That puts Google in position to make a move on the Times and many targets, writes NewsBusters’ Jeff Poor.

European Court rules on religion in Italy

The Vatican has denounced a ruling by the European Court of Human Rights that said the display of crucifixes in Italian public schools violates religious and education freedoms. In a decision that could force a review of the use of religious symbols in government-run schools across Europe, the court on Tuesday ordered Italy to pay a 5,000 Euro ($7,390) fine to a mother in northern Italy who fought for eight years to have crucifixes removed from her children’s public school classrooms. The Italian government said it would appeal. Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi said the crucifix was a fundamental sign of the importance of religious values in Italian history and culture and was a symbol of unity and welcoming for all of humanity — not one of exclusion. He said a European court had no right intervening in such a profoundly Italian matter and said “it seems as if the court wanted to ignore the role of Christianity in forming Europe’s identity, which was and remains essential.�

A Louisiana justice of the peace who refuses to marry interracial couples resigned Tuesday, after weeks of calls for his ouster from civil rights groups and several public officials, including the governor. Keith Bardwell quit with a one-sentence statement to Louisiana Secretary of State Jay Dardenne: “I do hereby resign the office of Justice of the Peace for the Eighth Ward of Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana, effective November 3, 2009.� Gov. Bobby Jindal called Bardwell’s resignation “long overdue.� Beth Humphrey, who is white, has said that when she and her now-husband, Terence McKay, who is black, called Bardwell’s office on Oct. 6 to ask about being married, Bardwell’s wife told her that the justice wouldn’t sign their marriage license because they were a “mixed couple.� When questioned, Bardwell, who is white, acknowledged he routinely avoids marrying interracial couples because he believes children born to them end up suffering. “There is a problem with both groups accepting a child from such a marriage,� Bardwell said in an October interview with The Associated Press. “I think those children suffer, and I won’t help put them through it.�

The acquisition of Burlington Northern Santa Fe, the nation’s second-largest railroad, would be the biggest ever for Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway investment company. It’s a natural fit for the Oracle of Omaha, a city with a special place in railroad history. It was the starting point for the westward push of the transcontinental railroad. Today, Omaha is the headquarters of Union Pacific, and BNSF trains rumble through every day. In a statement, Buffett, whose investing decisions are carefully scrutinized by the world of finance, voiced confidence in the railroad industry. “Most important of all, however, it’s an all-in wager on the economic future of the United States. I love these bets,� he said Tuesday.

Phillies say players were just kidding Baseball World Series Game 6 is tonight in New York By Dean Blazier What looked to be a confrontational exchange between Philadelphia Phillies pitchers Cole Hamels and Brett Myers after Game 5 of the World Series turned out to be friendly jabbering, according to a team official Tuesday afternoon. Contrary to a witness account late Monday, Phillies public relations director Greg Casterioto said Myers was joking when he said to Hamels, “What are you doing here? I thought you quit.” Hamels responded with an expletive. Myers’ observation was believed to reference Hamels’ remarks following Game 3, when he told reporters, “I can’t wait for the season to end. It’s been mentally draining. At year end, you just can’t wait for a fresh start.” Myers and Hamels contend the incident was light-hearted.

Hudson: All A-Rod thinks about is sex, food Game scores, masturbation and food is all men think about, according to Yankee star Alex Rodriguez’s main squeeze Kate Hudson. The actress told Elle, a British magazine, “I sometimes feel like when you’re talking to boys, they just hear certain keywords. ... But if you had a bubble above their head, they’d be thinking about game scores, masturbation and food.” “I love boys. ... but I believe they’re really simple. Every guy likes to say that they’re complicated, but they’re so easy to figure out.” A-Rod has not yet poked back at Hudson, but if he were to give her a jab it would probably go something like: “If men are only concerned with game scores, masturbation and food, then all women are concerned with is shoes, chocolate and gossip.” Or maybe A-Rod would say, “Kate’s thought bubble, on the other hand, is completely empty.” Tonight all A-Rod will be thinking about is trying to come up with the runs needed to finish off the World Series as Game 6 hits New York. The Yankees lead the series 3-2.

No change to FedEx Cup points

For the first year since the start of the FedEx Cup, the tour has decided to leave the point system intact. Rick George, chief of operations for the PGA Tour, said any adjustment to the points system was not on the agenda and not discussed at a policy board meeting earlier this week. Tiger Woods won the $10 million bonus this year with two runner-up finishes and a victory during the FedEx Cup playoffs, although four players had a chance to win the cup on the back nine of the Tour Championship. 2010 will be the fourth FedEx Cup.Â

Water cannon used to end soccer riot

Police used a water cannon to overcome rioting soccer fans after a second-division game and detained 23 people. Twenty-seven officers were slightly hurt. The police reacted when about 500 violent supporters of Hansa Rostock tried to breach a police barrier and threw bottles and firecrackers after their club had lost to visiting St. Pauli 2-0. About 1,500 police were on hand for the game between the clubs whose supporters have a history of animosity. There were clashes during and after Monday night’s game between rival groups of supporters. Police had no information on possible injuries.

One horse town sets three cat limit DUDLEY, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts town has made it illegal to own more than three cats without getting a special license. Voters at a town meeting in Dudley added language to a town bylaw on Monday night that makes it illegal to own more than three cats without a $50 residential kennel license. The article was in response to a neighborhood feud over the 15 cats owned by Mary Ellen Richards. The Telegram & Gazette of Worcester reports that one neighbor claimed the cats have ruined his yard. Richards has put her home up for sale and says she plans to move to a “more cat-friendly community.� Dudley is about 60 miles southwest of Boston. Moving along ...

goes to a public referendum on Jan. 5, town officials said. A town wide referendum has long been accepted as the final hurdle in the approval process. Eagle River Station is a retail/residential project that would be built in an 88-acre hay pasture on the east end of town with a railroad track and two highways running through it, I-70 and Highway 6. Long-time Eagle residents say the “Us vs. Them” rhetoric reminds them of the debates over Adam’s Rib ski area. That project had been proposed south of town up the Brush Creek Valley. Eagle River Station’s opponents say it will change Eagle’s small town character. Supporters say that small town nature needs changing, and besides, that character changed when Eagle Ranch was built, effectively doubling the town’s size. The finger wagging grew more intense over the past two weeks when Eagle residents were deluged with campaign-style phone surveys about Eagle River Station. Passions are running high both for and against, and both sides say they’re not doing the dialing. “We, at the Citizens for the Future of Eagle are not doing those phone polls,” says Jan Rosenthal of the opposition group. “We think it’s unfair to Red, the town and us to have fingers pointed at any of us.” Supporters also insist it’s not them. “We have surveyed in the past, and if this goes to public referendum we may do so in the future. But we are in no way involved with the robo calls and phone surveys currently inundating Eagle residents,” said Paul Witt, with Eagle River Station developers Trinity Red.

ELECTION RESULTS property owners can borrow money for weatherization improvements and renewable energy projects. Eagle County can now sell up to $10 million in bonds, with a total payback of $25 million. The ballot language outlined no details, but the vision is for those loans to be paid back over 20 year through increases to the borrower’s property taxes. The county commissioners have said the county would not sell any bonds until enough projects are approved to make it worth the time, effort and money to sell some of those $10 million in bonds. Every bond sale rolls up about $250,000 in fees. The commissioners have also said that the program will be designed so that taxpayers are not on the hook

Eagle River Station

Public referendum is tentatively scheduled for Jan. 5. What it is: • 88 acres just east of the Eagle I-70 interchange • 552,064 square feet retail to be built first • 20,000 square feet office • 581 housing units, phased over four years • 150-room hotel • Projected opening date of fall 2010 • Assumes buildout by 2014 Town officials say if they had extra money, they’d use it for something more sensible than phone surveys. Whoever is doing it has spent well in excess of $10,000. Local marketing experts said the phone polls would cost at least $3,500 each. A round of robo calls before the last several ERS hearings would add to that tab. At the Oct. 27 meeting, 60 people stood up and made impassioned pleas that the town would either be irrevocably scarred, or that they couldn’t wait to have a place in town to buy blue jeans. Eagle will get $17 million up front in permits and fees, then a revenue stream of sales tax after the retail stores open. Also part of the project is a new interchange for I-70, and a new water tank for the town. Cities count on sales taxes to pay the bills. In Eagle it’s 55 percent of the town’s budget. Of that, 80 percent comes from businesses along Eagle’s current I-70 interchange. Of the town’s top 15 sales-tax producers, 13 are regional and national brands.

Team member’s training. “It was awesome, the conditions were the best,â€? said Vonn. “They injected the snow just last night, so I was a little worried, but it was perfect.â€? Returning from the Audi FIS Alpine World Cup opener in Soelden, Austria, where she finished with a solid ninth place, the 25-year-old club alum said she was happy to be back in Vail. “It’s really cool because a lot of my old coaches are here and it’s great to see them and be a part of the community again,â€? said Vonn. “The kids are so cute and it’s fun to actually be with them and hopefully help them learn something.â€? Club member and Ski and Snowboard Academy student Carolyn Byrne was out of breath at the end of her runs, but all smiles when she gushed about sharing the slopes with Vonn. “She’s really fast!â€? Byrne said to her mother Kathleen, who excitedly watched the first day of the club’s training. “She’s great, she’s light in her feet.â€? Kathleen agreed. “It’s so exciting to see them train with Lindsey, it’s just amazing,â€? she said. Vonn will be training at the club for at least the next few days, before heading to her first slalom workup in Levi, Finland on the 10th. Her training focus this season has shifted slightly since Vonn moved from using Rossignol -the ski company brand name she has relied on her entire career - to Head Skis, said Vonn. “It was a mutual decision between Rossignol and myself to move on,â€? she said. “Since I switched ski companies to Head, I’m just trying to figure out in training what the best racing formula is.â€? Vonn said she’s owed her sanity during the hectic training and traveling schedule to her husband and coach Thomas Vonn. “Thomas is wonderful, he makes my life a lot easier,â€? said Lindsey. “As long as he’s there with me, I don’t get homesick.â€? When they aren’t traveling for training and competition, Lindsey and Thomas will be staying at the Arrabelle at Vail Square hotel in Lionshead thanks to a four-year sponsorship contract with Vail Resorts, announced last August. “We’re psyched to have Lindsey home and training here with the club and in Vail,â€? said Radamus. “It’s great to have alumnists like Lindsey here, so we’re excited we’re able to help her train and to support her.â€? Radamus said the early season training for Lindsey and club members is all thanks to the hard work Vail Resorts did over the summer, making nearly 3 million in improvements to Golden Peak’s snowmaking system. The Vail Resorts construction team installed new water piping on the slope, built a new pump house and installed 17 Super Pole Cat tower fan guns along the competition arena. “We’ll be training all through the fall thanks to this initiative to upgrade the snowmaking system‌the main purpose was to give our kids and folks like Lindsey the opportunity to prepare for their season without having to travel,â€? said Radamus. “We’re well ahead of what we anticipated, so it shows how great the system that the Vail Resorts installed this year was, and what a great job their team did to get the hill ready.â€?

NBC ‘Countdown to Vancouver’ airs tonight


Locals Appreciation Closed Sundays & Mondays



By Cyrus Tingley Seeing Lindsay Vonn charge down Golden Peak in the morning is a spray-in-the-face reminder that it’s definitely time to start getting excited about the 2010 Winter Olympics. NBC Universal is banking on such anticipation as its “Countdown to Vancouver� begins tonight, 100 days from the Opening Ceremony of the Vancouver Olympic Games on Feb. 12. At 8 p.m. ET (6 p.m. local time), more than 1,250 original hours of pre-Olympic winter sport competition programming will kick off, allowing those winter fiends to get their fix on a nightly basis. This includes the airing of more than 300 Olympic events from now until the start of the Games. “This will allow viewers to follow the stories of the world’s greatest winter athletes as they compete for the honor of representing their country,� says NBC. Tonight’s special will include profiles of both Vonn and two-time Olympic silver medalist Bode Miller, along with snowboarders Shaun White and Lindsey Jacobellis, among others. Of particular interest to many here in the Valley will be the entire World Cup alpine ski season broadcast live on Universal Sports (local channel Comcast 250). Vail resident Vonn will be seeking her third consecutive championship title as NBC follows her and the rest of the US Ski Team on the road to Vancouver. Andi Malboeuf of Elevation 8 Marketing, an Edwards company that represents Universal Sports, is excited by the opportunity to bring wintersport action into homes across the Olympian birthing ground that is the Vail Valley. “We work on national campaigns and across multiple sports, but because we are located here [in Vail] we have a vested interest in skiing,� Malboeuf said, “and we are thrilled to have this channel up and running in our ‘hood.� NBC’s special programming will also include complete coverage of pre-Olympic speedskating, snowboarding, bodsled, luge, and skeleton competition, as well as partial coverage of key competitions in ski jumping, freestyle skiing and cross-country skiing leading up to February’s Games. Following tonight’s one-hour special, Universal Sports’ “Countdown to Vancouver� program will begin airing nightly at 8 p.m. starting Dec. 1 and continuing through Feb. 12, 2010 when the Games kick off in Vancouver. Additionally, comedy bigwigs Leno, Conan, and Jimmy Fallon will all host Olympic athletes during the next several months. Lindsey Vonn was on “The Tonight Show� last week.
