Why did you come to Colorado?

I am grateful to be a Colorado native. I grew up in Englewood, graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder and have lived in the Vail Valley for over 12 years.

What is your favorite place and why?

I love where I live, Vail and Beaver Creek. The Vail Valley has so much to offer all year long: world-class skiing, unique alpine villages, extensive trails systems for hiking and biking, exceptional restaurants, incredible concerts and festivals…the list could go on forever.

What do you want our guests to know about your favorite destination that they may not know?

Beaver Creek is a regular stop on the men’s World Cup tour each December. Guests get the opportunity to bring their cow bell and cheer on the world’s best ski racers as they compete in the Downhill, Super G and Giant Slalom categories.

What is your favorite activity in Colorado?

I love Colorado because it has all four seasons so I have a favorite activity for each season:

Spring-Spring Skiing; Summer-Camping; Fall-Hiking; Winter-Snowshoeing.

Why should our clients have their group event in Colorado?

Colorado is a beautiful and diverse state with so much to offer. Guests can raft the Colorado River, hike a 14,000 foot peak, tour Colorado’s wine country, ski diverse terrain, relax in natural hot springs, take a sleigh ride to dinner, horseback ride through beautiful aspen groves and so much more.
