Vail Daily letter: Cordillera alive and well!
There have been a lot of news articles about Cordillera in the Vail Daily these past few weeks, and they don’t tell the whole story about our wonderful community. Everyone in the valley needs to know that despite our legal issues, Cordillera is still strong, committed and positive. I want to say thank you to the many displaced members of the Cordillera golf club for everything they have done this summer to keep us together as a community. Even though we don’t have a home golf course to play, many Cordillera members have planned golf outings for us all over the Vail Valley and beyond. Months ago we declared that this would be a summer when we would make our own fun, and as a group we have succeeded! We have enjoyed playing at several wonderful golf courses in the Vail Valley, and they have welcomed us with open arms. Special thanks should go to Eagle Ranch Golf Course (aka Cordillera West!), the Eagle-Vail Golf Course, and the Vail Golf Course. In addition, thanks to the Lodge & Spa at Cordillera for planning many great events to help us stay together as a community. The lodge has certainly more than risen to the challenge. In addition to playing our local courses, Cordillera members have organized weekly trips to a number of other golf courses outside the Vail Valley. They’ve organized the schedules, tee times, carpooling, pairings, communications, etc. We have had some wonderful experiences! How sad, however, that more of our own dollars didn’t stay in the valley every day to better support our local shops and restaurants. Here’s the bottom line about Cordillera: What could have been a very difficult summer for us has turned out to be far better than we ever imagined. So again, a heartfelt thanks to all the wonderful people of Cordillera who stepped up and made this a summer to remember! Cordillera is a great place to live and will continue to be despite our current problems.Kim Tickner Cordillera

Are we seeing more bears because there are more bears on the valley floor, or because we’re all spending more time at home? It could be a bit of both.
