Vail: Your Next Ski Vacation Destination
... of Vail are some of the most picturesque in all of North America. And so is Vail itself. It’s where Hollywood’s elite come to play in the winter with its high-end restaurants, and it’s where many skiers and snowboarders vacation, being drawn to Vail’s snow capped Colorado Rockies that provide diverse terrain for all levels, including steep runs that are challenging for experts and trails that are flatter and more serene for beginners.

Swiss Winter Vacation without Skis

Swiss Winter Vacation without Skis
... rustic chalet facades. Shops selling luxurious ski outfits, wood carvings, talking murmeltier and hand-crafted cuckoo clocks lined the street. Early winter darkness wrapped the chalets and shops in deep shadows. The last sunrays darted across the mountains and made Matterhorn shine like a piece of glowing coal. The next morning, Bahnhofstrasse bustled with ski-carrying people on their way to the pistes. I ducked into a side street, right behind the church, shuffled through fresh snow and found Hinterdorf,...

Photo Op: Winter Storm Hits Arizona

Photo Op: Winter Storm Hits Arizona
Take a moment to reflect on this serene photo of Flagstaff during a past winter storm.  Today, Flagstaff has reported nearly 3 1/2 feet of snow with another 2 feet or more expected.  This storm has affected Phoenix and Tucson with record-breaking rainfall causing flash floods and many local roads and freeway closures.  This has been the worst winter storm to hit Arizona in 17 years with our governor declaring a state of emergency. Bet you never thought we could have such dramatic weather conditions...

Chilly Nights in Florida

Chilly Nights in Florida
As I sit in the snowy Midwest, I patiently await my return to my sunny home where shoveling, winter storm advisories and negative wind chills don’t exist. Yes, the change of seasons is great, but after a week — I am finished. The joys of being able to decide when my winter weather is finished is fabulous, but there are some people who never get to experience those cold weather winter fantasies. If you are looking for those cold winter nights, but don’t want to leave the state, there...

Photo Op:  Seattle Winter Sunset
I don’t know what it is about Seattle winters, but they turn up some of the most spectacular sunsets. While the past several days have brought us icy, freezing cold (below freezing in truth), weather, Seattle-ites manage to find the bright side of it all.  And after all, the days will start getting longer in just another couple of weeks.

Winter Feasts at ivy

Ivy is serving up budget-friendly gourmet meals to beat the chilly winter weather. winter Feasts are available at all ivy restaurants, so it doesn’t matter whether you’re in the mood for Italian, tapas, Japanese, modern Australian, or something different. I’m tempted by the twice-cooked pork belly at Teppanyaki, the duck leg confit at est, and the Tiramisu at Uccello! $35 will buy you a one, two, or three-course lunch or dinner (depending on the restaurant), plus a glass of wine of James...

Tollwood Winter Festival

... require that you purchase tickets (see website). While some may be wondering if it’s too cold to have an outdoor festival during the harsh Munich winter, they quickly change their minds as hot glühwein (spiced wine) is overflowing at only 2.50€ a mug. Lime slices swim in steaming glasses of caipirinihas, warming the drinker from head to toe. If cups of hot alcohol aren’t in your cards, you can find some of the tastiest homemade hot chocolate as well as assortments of dark, milk and white...
