Ski Vail & Eat in Vail

 We just returned from our Spring Break with the kids.  It’s one of our favorite things to do with them and this year was special because we actually all skied together- a first for our family.


Skiing with the family is always fun & always an adventure.  One year, we got this ratchet stomach bug, which literally had all of us sick.  Even our babysitter!  I’ll leave the gory details out, but suffice it to say I lost 5 lbs. in 1 week and I hadn’t done that since I was in college!!  But it doesn’t stop us from wanting to come back each year.  There are all these beautiful spots in town- here under “the covered bridge”.IMG_5777IMG_5666  I mean who can beat this view?!  I’m not the best skier, but I can get down the mountain  on a blue no problem- a black diamond, if I have to (may not always be pretty).  The skiing is great, but a girls gotta eat and trust me it’s easy to do.   

Here are the places I recommend to eat:

For Apre’ Ski:  Larkspur.  Get there about 2:30-3:00 to ensure a table.  Also, Vail Chophouse is great! Perfect  location at the end of the Gondola, right in the center of Lionshead.

For Mexican:  Los Amigos in Vail Village.

For best cappuccino/latte:  Loaded Joe’s in Vail Village

Best Sushi: Matsuhiro (Nobu’s last name)  Yum, fantastic.  A Foodie’s delightful experience.  Those are Shishito peppers and yellow tail sashimi.  You literally can’t order anything bad here.

Most Romantic/ Foodie Experience:  Beano’s Cabin in Beaver Creek.  You take a sleigh up, pulled by a bobcat and snuggle in warm blankets.


 Here’s your view while eating…
Of course, all this good eating got me excited to get home and start cooking again.  Food posts to follow!  ;)

I hope this helps with your visit to Vail.  Let me know if you have a favorite spot here!
