Vail, Colorado is gloriously beautiful in summer and winter. Vail Village is full of German inspired architecture and patterns.
Today, a daily lift ticket in Vail is $100. During the opening season in December 1962, it was only $5. It was founded by two men, Earl Eaton and Pete Seibert, who had no money of their own, but had a vision of what Vail could be. It started small but is now one of the premier ski areas in the world.
If you have a dream or vision bubbling inside your heart, don’t forget:
Zachariah 4:10: Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin.
Don’t give up your dream out of frustration with small beginnings!

Looks like a lot of ski areas follow the European traditional architecture. I have been to Whistler in BC Canada, and it is much the same… Vail sounds like a great place to visit.
Agreed. It’s a beautiful mountain town 🙂
