Welcome to the newsletter for VBSR supporters! Bringing the ski scoop to your inbox. Connect with us for ski industry news, family updates, mountain conditions, and the Vail experience.

An Optimistic Winter

We certainly had a slow start to the 2017-18 season, but it’s snowing as I type today! With the Olympics just a few days away, we are cheering loudly for the Vail Valley athletes going to Pyeong Chang – Lindsey Vonn, Mikaela Shiffrin, Tess Johnson, Meghan Tierney, Jake Pates, Chris Del Bosco, Sarah Schleper and Rakai Tait. Go USA!

We had our annual deep dive into the Outdoor Retailer Snow Show in Denver where we scouted and tested the new products for the 2017-2018 season. Stay tuned for the inside scoop. In the meantime, the shop has been abuzz with our core crew, a few new staffers and 3rd generation VBSR littles as they hit the slopes – including 18 month old Blaise.

Always praying for snow, Dominique Underhill
