At Vail Cascade, We’ve Got Easter Eggs Any Way You Like Them...Even Hidden!

Easter is just a few weeks away and you know what that means?  Easter egg hunts, the Easter Bunny and of course, an Easter feast!  At Vail Cascade we’re celebrating Easter in a big way with mouth-watering dishes from the culinary staff at Atwater on Gore Creek. Adults can relax with a Bloody Mary or Mimosa while the kids are hunting for eggs or having their photo taken with the Easter Bunny. Need a last minute Easter basket for the kids? No problem. Easter baskets may be purchased in the Market Cafe located on property.

Our full Easter buffet at Atwater on Gore Creek includes a chilled buffet loaded with mixed berry smoothies, a smoked salmon display, albacore tuna Nicoise, shrimp and hearts of palm salad, sliced fruit and berries, vanilla parfaits and more.  Piping hot items like coconut butternut squash soup, roasted tomato goat cheese quiche, BLT Benedict, hand carved leg of lamb, Boulder Colorado trout, biscuits and gravy, savory chicken crepes, strawberry mascarpone pancakes, western potato hash, bacon,  and a whole lot more will have you going back for seconds!  Stuffed yet?  Don’t forget to save room for dessert! 

Since we know you can’t survive on chocolate bunnies, Peeps and jelly beans alone, our scrumptious dessert buffet delights with triple chocolate cake, carrot cake, spring fruit tart, fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies and macaroons in assorted flavors like blackberry ginger, raspberry, orange, pistachio and my personal favorite, lemon.  

Easter is a day of celebration and a great day to spend it with the family.  Happy Easter from everyone at Vail Cascade and Atwater on Gore Creek.

Spring Back to Vail April 17-19

Vail's huge end-of-the-season bash, Spring Back to Vail, offers free concerts from national headliners, on-snow events, street parties and more!  Spring Back to Vail takes place April 17-19. Don't miss the legendary World Pond Skimming Championships on at the Golden Peak base area on closing day! The venue opens at 1:30pm with expos and giveaways from event sponsors and the competition gets going at 3:00pm.

The annual competition entails floatable (and sometimes sinkable) athletes launching themselves off an on-snow jump onto an icy pond in attempt to successfully exit the pond on both feet. Competitors will vie for both fame and glory in a showing that defies the laws of physics – and perhaps even common sense.

For end of season lodging, check out the Vail vacation packages available at Colorado's favorite family resort!

Practice Self-Inquiry at Vail's Aria Yoga Studio

SITTING BUDDHA
“Buddha sits under the Boddhi tree in a deep yogic trance. Having attained enlightenment, he serves as a model for all yoga practitioners. Sitting meditation encourages inner stillness, and Buddha reminds us of our potential for silence and freedom on all levels. A Buddha like mind, trained inward, results from practice or may arise spontaneously. The focused mind opens the way for meditation, awareness and right action. Through our practice, the heart blossoms like a lotus and our capacity for love and compassion become limitless.” - Julie Rappaport

YOGA STUDENT OF THE MONTH - VICKY KELESKE
Vicky Keleske started practicing yoga in the spring of 2014 with Bronson at Aria Athletic Club & Spa. Bronson says “It has been really amazing to watch her yoga practice develop alongside my journey as a new teacher.” Vicky, an athlete, dog lover and local business owner has been dedicated to her practice since she started a year ago. Her practice has blossomed to the point where she not only attends classes but practices at home as well. Vicky says “I am so blessed to be able to practice yoga at the Aria Club. The teachers are amazing. Thanks Bronson for teaching me to love yoga!”

ACRO YOGA
We did a lot of laughing in the AcroYoga workshop this weekend at the Aria. Samantha Sunshine leads a smart, professional practice with a bright open  heart. She and Bronson made everyone feel safe and supported. Students shared their experience at the end of the workshop and a few words that came out of it were.. I quote “balanced, bright, connected, energized, loved and free in both mind and body”. This practice brought out the child in all of us and made our joints and muscles breath a sign of relief. The Aria Yoga program will be continuing to host Samantha and Bronson for a Full Moon AcroYoga series. I encourage you to come check it out…it’s is suitable for all levels of ability.
