dear FRIENDS, As the Vail Valley Foundation approaches its 30th anniversary in January of 2011, it is only natural to reflect on everything that we have been fortunate enough to accomplish, not only in the past 365 days, but the previous 29 years as well. While there are plenty of nostalgic moments to ponder, reflecting on the past or being overly impressed with the status quo has never been the “foundation” of this organization. Our vision has been one that is constantly focused on the horizon, dreaming of what we can help this community achieve or become. In a sense, the Vail Valley Foundation has strived to provide the building blocks that have helped to shape the Vail Valley community. As the cover of our Year in Review illustrates, there are a great many programs and projects that comprise the Foundation that when put together, provide a solid foundation for our valley from an athletic, cultural and educational perspective. Over the course of the past year, the Vail Valley Foundation has continued to dedicate itself to adding new blocks to this foundation from one end of this valley to the other. We have once again helped to

Teva Mountain Games

provide a platform that allows each and every person to fully explore the true potential that lies within all of us. There were numerous new blocks that were put in place in 2010— new and exciting events that included winning the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships, helping to bring professional cycling back to the Vail Valley with the Quiznos Pro Challenge and the creation of a new Winter Mountain Games that will launch in 2012. In addition, the Foundation launched three new education initiatives with Sowing Seeds and First Notes, while also rolling out a second Magic Bus. None of this would be possible without your continued support. We hope you will take the time to revisit 2010 with the Vail Valley Foundation in the coming pages. If the past 30 years have taught us one thing, it is that together, we CAN and DO make a difference.

Cecilia Folz, President

EDUCATION The Vail Valley Foundation’s education efforts are focused on one goal—to give every child in Eagle County access to education-based programs that ignite passions and expand their horizons. In order to achieve this goal, we identify educational gaps then develop, evaluate and fund programs that provide youth with the skills, confidence and support to become outstanding leaders and stewards in our community and the world. Parents, educators and community organizations all come together to ensure the success of our programs. In doing so, they enrich their lives and society. That is the power of education and the important role the Vail Valley Foundation plays in our community, as we serve approximately 24,500 children throughout the valley on an annual basis via our numerous education programs.

Thanks to this partnership, teachers report dramatic improvement in at-risk students.

making smart food choices. The program also allows students to incorporate their gardening produce into the school cafeteria program and learn food economics by selling plants and vegetables at the Eagle Farmer’s Market.

First Notes Research indicates that early access to music instruction enhances memory, math ability, reading skills, vocabulary and spatial temporal skills, while also greatly improving academic performance. First Notes is an

Celebrate the Beat Through dance, children not only learn the benefits of exercising, but they also learn coordination, stamina, memory and discipline. Celebrate the Beat gives 1,000 elementary schools students in Eagle County the chance to dance. This school-based program motivates children to believe in themselves, value artistic expression, develop creativity and teamwork and instills a personal standard of excellence.

College Scholarships An advanced degree is more important than ever, but college tuition can be out of reach for many. Established by the Foundation in 1992, the scholarship program has grown to the largest collegiate scholarship effort in the Vail Valley, with

a total of $1.4 million raised. The VVF awards a variety of scholarships, including the VVF four-year and the June Kang Love of the Arts, along with up to 10 Karri Casner scholarships annually for students attending Colorado Mountain College.

Education Elevation While the Vail Valley Foundation has numerous in-house education programs, it is equally important for the organization to identify and financially support those programs in our community that have the highest educational expectations for children. Education Elevation’s goal is to create a pipeline of seamless services that address the needs of the changing demographics of our community. By identifying needs, creating and funding programs to fill gaps through community grants and joining in the collaborative efforts with other organizations to avoid redundancy, the Vail Valley Foundation is providing leadership in ensuring that valuable programs for our youth are supported within the community.

The 2010 Korbel American Ski Classic was a tremendous success on the racecourse. The addition of the Conway Cup, presented by Korbel, provided a wonderful new clientele for the event as all the top local racers from throughout the valley came together for the inaugural race to honor Dan Conway. We also shared in the excitement as Volvo Legends Casey Puckett of the U.S. and Isolde Kostner of Italy captured the Volvo Legends of Skiing Giant Slalom, while Team American Airlines Domestic put on a fantastic and thrilling show en route to capturing the Korbel Ford

June 3-6, 2010

The 2010 Teva Mountain Games marked the ninth annual celebration of the nation’s largest showcase of adventure sports, music, art and mountain lifestyle. The record crowds and record participants are always a welcome sight during a typically quiet time of year for Vail businesses, officially kicking off the summer season in the valley. The Vail Valley Foundation continues to improve the event while still honoring the Mountain Games vibe, heritage and authenticity. Likewise, the Mountain Games continues to draw the top athletes within their disciplines, putting them on the starting lines next to the weekend warriors. This year’s event featured the addition of Stand Up Paddling to the Whitewater component of the event, along with an 11% growth in total athlete registration over 2009. Close

to 40,000 people were on hand throughout the weekend to take in the wide variety of competition and entertainment opportunities, with an estimated economic impact of $3.9 million. The 2010 Teva Mountain Games enjoyed a one-hour nationally syndicated television show, produced by Jalbert Productions, along with national Fox Sports and Outside TV time buys that reached approximately 1.9 million viewers.

Beaver Creek would host their third World Championships. Now, the real work begins, however, with just over four years until the world comes calling again. Major plans for the Championships include the construction of a new women’s Downhill course in Beaver Creek, adjacent to Birds of Prey, along with the construction and relocation of a new Red Tail Restaurant that will serve as the Main Media Center for the Beaver Creek events. In conjunction with these two projects, the Red Tail Finish Stadium will be reconfigured to create additional space. This project will involve moving the current timing building to the opposite side of the racecourse and re-grading the finish area. The dates for the 2015 World Championships were finalized by the FIS Council at their November 2010 meeting, with the event running February 3-15.

Quiznos Pro Challenge Host Cities Announcement


Major international road bike racing will return to the Vail Valley August 25 and 26 of 2011 as the Vail Valley Foundation helped pave the way for both Vail and Avon to be selected as stage components of the inaugural Quiznos Pro Challenge cycling event. The announcement came at a press conference on the steps of the State Capitol in Denver on Thursday, November 4, 2010. Over the course of the past four years, Foundation officials have worked to bring cycling back to the Vail Valley, most recently serving on the advisory committee for the concept that has evolved into the Quiznos Pro Challenge. The campaign was aided by the Foundation’s previous role in cycling, including the 1994 and 2001 World Mountain Bike Championships. Vail and Avon will join nine other Colorado cities in hosting the 2011 Quiznos Pro Challenge, which has been scheduled for August 22-28. The Vail and Avon stages will be coordinated and hosted by the Vail Valley Foundation, the Town of Vail and the Town of Avon, along with additional interested individuals and organizations throughout the valley.

Birds of Prey

December 3-5, 2010

While the annual Audi Birds of Prey World Cup Race Week always provides plenty of stories and memories, the 2010 edition featured two in particular, both worthy of headlines, both unfolding on the final day of competition and both bringing smiles to the large crowd assembled in Beaver Creek for the races. For the home country fans, the first story centered around U.S. Ski Team member Ted Ligety. The 26-year-old from

Audi Birds of Prey

Park City, Utah, took flight on the Birds of Prey, posting the fastest time on both runs to win the Audi Birds of Prey Giant Slalom, outdistancing runner-up Kjetil Jansrud of Norway, while Austria’s Marcel Hirscher claimed the third place spot. The day’s second story appealed to all fans of ski racing as Switzerland’s Daniel Albrecht stepped into the starting gate of his first World Cup race since sustaining life threatening injuries in a Downhill training run crash in January of 2009 in Kitzbuhel, Austria. The Red Tail Finish Stadium erupted in a roar when Albrecht crossed the finish line in the first run, eventually finding himself in 17th position and qualifying for the second run. The assembled trainers and athletes in the coach’s corral applauded as well before offering hugs and high fives to the Swiss racer. Unfortunately, Mother Nature also scored a victory in Beaver Creek as high winds forced

approximately 500 million people worldwide, with NBC airing a one-hour special on the Super-G, while Versus produced shows for the Super-G and Giant Slalom. Additional on-site television

The 2010 winter and summer performance seasons once again showcased a diverse lineup of entertainment options that included concerts, Broadway musicals, classical music, dance, family programming, comedy and community events. Winter highlights included a gala evening with opera legend Renee Fleming, blues guitar superstar B.B. King, engagements of both STOMP and CATS, two

The Vilar Center also continued its role as an invaluable community asset, playing host to a variety of youth performances, fundraising events and the STARS (Support the Arts Reaching Children) series. In addition, select artists also visited the Vail Valley Medical Center through the theatre’s Arts in Healing program, providing mini-performances for patients. Over the course of a year, the Vilar Performing Arts Center plays host to approximately 90 performances, with a total estimated audience base of close to 41,000 people.

Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater Long considered the preeminent summer performing arts venue in the region, the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater finally christened an original component of the initial facility plan with the opening of the orchestra pit on July 31 in conjunction with

the Vail International Dance Festival’s performance by Pacific Northwest Ballet. The orchestra pit features a 45-musician capacity. When not in use, the orchestra pit will be covered by a modular scaffold filler, which can then be utilized for standing room once again. In addition to the new orchestra pit, the major garden area behind the stage underwent a complete makeover, providing

for an enhanced and attractive visual backdrop for all of the performances at the venue. Looking to the future, the Foundation, spearheaded by Harry Frampton, has proposed a major redesign of the lower bench of Ford Park and the Ford Amphitheater to the Vail Town Council for consideration and potential funding. The total estimated cost of the project is expected to be close


to $10 million and if approved, the project could begin in the fall of 2011, with potential staging of the construction over a two-year period. The Vail Valley Foundation would spearhead the fundraising efforts for the Ford Amphitheater portion of the project, while the Town of Vail was asked to consider covering the Ford Park improvements.

Free Concerts Bud Light Street Beat While many begin the countdown to the weekend when Wednesdays roll around, “Hump Day” never sounded as good as it did in 2010 as the annual Bud Light Street Beat free concert series returned with more great sounds in more locations. The free winter series featured an eight-show lineup and not only visited its traditional Checkpoint Charlie, Arrabelle at Vail Square and Golden Peak/American Ski Classic venues, but added two free performances at the new Solaris project in order to further spread the love around Vail. The 2010 schedule got underway January 13 with the legendary reggae sounds of The Wailers at Checkpoint Charlie, while the February 24 offering showcased Stockholm Syndrome, the “Dream Team” of jam rock collaborations. The agenda got fast and furious in March, with a quartet of shows, including March 10 with The Mother Hips, Cowboy Mouth on March 18 in conjunction with the American Ski Classic, the Pimps of Joytime on March 24 and Zivanai Masango & Pachedu on March 31. April performances included Danielia Cotton on April 7 and

Since its inception, American National Bank ShowDown Town has quickly developed into the official “down valley” weekly summer gathering spot for the residents of Eagle and Gypsum. This five-show, family friendly local event has also cultivated a strong “up valley” fan base that makes the trip west each Thursday in July. For 2010, the emphasis was to secure more regional bands, as opposed to local bands, in an effort to bring better variety to the series. This was accomplished,

A total of nearly 25,000 people attended the eight-show 2010 Bud Light Street Beat free concert series. The 2010-11 edition of Bud Light Street Beat also hit the streets in 2010, with a rousing bluegrass kickoff provided by the Emmitt Nershi Band on December 16.

This year’s line-up received praise and promotion in a wide variety of print as well as a robust web presence on dance-centric sites, including a VIDF-specific YouTube channel, archiving and updating highlights from Festival performances and rehearsals. The Festival once again brought artists representing all styles of dance from tap to tango to ballet to modern, performed by dancers from Russia to China to Denmark to Argentina. In addition to presenting classic works by the great figures in dance of past and present, the Festival featured four world premieres by some of the most important choreographers from around the globe, including a ballet created for New York City Ballet star Wendy Whelan by the former Artistic Director of the Bolshoi, Alexei Ratmansky. Companies featured in this year’s Festival included Pacific Northwest Ballet, Paul Taylor Dance Company, Beijing/LDTX

The 2010 edition of Dancing in the Streets featured the public performing in a fashion showstyle runway dance at Arrabelle, arranged by Artist-in-Residence Larry Keigwin. In addition to the variety of world class dance, the Festival continued to expand its use of live music, courtesy of the new orchestra pit at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater. Among the musicians appearing were legendary Latin Jazz virtuoso Eddie Palmieri, who accompanied the greatest tap dancer in the world, Savion Glover. Additional live music was provided by the cutting edge quintet, while musicians from the Colorado Symphony also helped christen the pit. We look forward to increased use in future seasons. A total of over 15,000 tickets were sold to the 11 performances of the Vail International Dance Festival in 2010.
