How This Thing Works

We had almost five times as many ballots as any previous year, which is great. It’s a wonderful thing when readers feel they have that level of ownership in their local newspaper, until it comes time for us to tabulate the zillion and a half ballots. Of course, we didn’t get stuck with it ourselves. We flogged a couple of our young guys into doing it, explaining patiently to them that it is a wonderful thing when readers feel a level of ownership that high in their local newspaper.

This year’s Best of the Vail Valley includes both winter and summer. One starts here, and the other starts on the other side. They both work their way toward the middle, where they meet in harmony and live happily ever after.

We hope you do, too.

Enjoy it. We did.
