Some days ago, I skied with friends Bachelor Gulch. It was Saturday, the day when the Front Range skiers normally have their meeting on Vail Mountain. So, where to go?

For many years we have enjoyed the warm spring sun at Bachelor Gulch together with a good, tasty hamburger at noon. But the nice and quiet place there was gone – and we enjoyed signs “For Members Only” in front of the new Ritz Carlton.

At least we could get a hamburger at the buffet. But instead of $5-$6 for a burger like before, we had to pay $18, and I would call this really “a big step forward !” Those are the little things which stay in mind.

If I will ask my friend Christian some years later if he remembers skiing Vail’s Bachelor Gulch, I am sure he will tell me that was the place with the stupid hamburger. Wouldn’t a fair price for a simple hamburger earn more money than a bad reputation?

Scoop in Wildridge

Thanks to the town of Avon and Councilman Pete Buckley for responding to a request for doggy waste stations at both entrances to Beaver Creek Point.

For the uninitiated, even a large area like the point gets pretty nasty looking from the usage of literally dozens of dogs. Fellow Wildridge dog lovers are encouraged to clean up after your pet as you enjoy this beautiful open space.
