At 59 years old and having skied at nearly all of the great resorts in Europe, the US and Canada, each one of those places had some run or feature better than Vail. When taken as a package of beauty, difficulty, ambiance, social activity and great dining, there is no equal. For 21 years the Big Dawgs have met on the same weekend in February for 4-5 days of camaraderie, good food, spirits and the challenge of the skiing at Vail. For the critics, chill out and enjoy one of Gods great playgrounds. See you at the Club! Slippery D.
