NOBU is coming to Vail! It will be located on the upper level of the new Solaris building in Vail Village and will over look the park in the summer and the ice skating rink in the winter.

The restaurant will be called Matsuhisa and should be open sometime this summer.

I have dined at the Aspen restaurant and also at Nobu in the Shore Club in South Beach. This is the BEST sushi around!

The Vail real estate market has experienced the most dramatic incline overall Western Ski Resorts. This was the consensus at the Western Mountain Resort Alliance conference held 1/21/2011in Cascade Village. Skier visits are up as is the snowfall. Vail saw resort market pricing bottom in 2009 (see the graphs on the reverse side) returning our average unit prices to 2004 & 2005 levels. Sales volume and velocity were up in 2010 but prices were down. It may take approximately 6-8 years to recover and get back to 2007 price levels given the amount of inventory we have on the market now combined with additional inventory that will come on the market as consumer confidence comes back. Average sizes of homes are declining. The take away-Now is a fantastic time to buy real estate in the Vail Valley in the resort markets of Vail, Beaver Creek, Bachelor Gulch and Arrowhead! This market has seen significant gains in the past and is poised to come out of this recession strong and on top and shows signs of maintained growth for the future!

There are currently 32 properties listed at $9,000,000 and up. The most expensive being 332 Mill Creek Court in Vail. This property is listed at $17,900,000.

According to the Vail Homeowners Association, they believe that real estate sales for Vail proper are showing signs that the steady decline in prices over the past 2 years may be reaching bottom. Let’s hope that is correct. With only 7 high end properties ($9,00,000+) closing thus far and 32 properties currently on the market at $9,00,000+ the absorption rate is is 4.5 years at this pace for high end property!

Come and Apres with me! Dec. 2 from 3-6pm and check out the newly remodeled Manor Vail #370! Just across from Golden Peak! You won’t be disappointed.










What a day, what a day! This is my best opening day ever and anywhere! Blue sky, sunshine, wrapped it up on Pepi’s deck with the sun blazing down on me! And my hip works wonderfully! I can ski again!!  Thank you Dr. Marc Philippon and Mike Wahoff and team!


Blue Sky in Vail

Headed up to ski the opening day in Vail!! This is the most beautiful blue sky opening day I have ever skied. I am anxious to get up on the mountain to test the snow conditions but I am even more anxious to test out my hip that Dr. Philippon repaired in March! It is a good thing he is in my own back yard. He is a fabulous surgeon. Cheers to a fantastic ski season!!

Vail resort will open with Chairs 2,3,4,8,15,16 and Liondshead Eagle Bahn Gondola. Recent storms have been a huge help in the snowmaking and grooming process.

The National Weather Service predicts an early powder season!!!! If you haven’t already done so book your reservations for this ski season! We are about to have a great start to our season!!
