Photo Challenge: Patterns in Vail


Vail, Colorado is gloriously beautiful in summer and winter. Vail Village is full of German inspired architecture and patterns.

Vail Village Hotel

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!

  1. 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.
