Pets and Musical Children Make the Antlers at Vail Home

We love the variety of friends who make the Antlers their home while here in Vail. As the official pet-friendly hotel of the Go Pro Mountain Games, we enjoyed many furry friends visiting over the weekend. Those furry friends included a skateboarding bulldog and competitors in the 2013 Dock Dogs competition at the GoPro Mountain Games. Most of those friends have checked out now, and our friends at the Colorado Children’s Chorale have checked in. Our condo arrangements (from studios to four-bedroom condos, all with full kitchens) make us an ideal home for families, or anyone coming for an extended stay.

The Colorado Children’s Chorale is at the Antlers for their annual visit.  They are in town for a workshop designed to develop performance skills such as singing, dancing, acting and stage movement. Professional conductors and Chorale members work with attendees to share music and theater skills plus elements of teamwork and self confidence. The workshop concludes with a performance, Voices in the Valley, featuring workshop participants on stage with the Colorado Children’s Chorale at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater on Friday, June 14 at 7:00 p.m.

Here’s a taste of all the fun we’re looking forward to at the Antlers at Vail Condominiums and Conference Center this week in a video of the Colorado Children’s Chorale Rehearsing in the Antlers at Vail Courtyard in 2010.

Got Antlers?

We love it when guests wear the Antlers’ trademark red antlers. As the group above demonstrates, antlers are the perfect fashion accessory for mountaintop freestyle golf.

Greg and Randi from our staff show how versatile these antlers really are–they even look swell with evening attire:

Brazilian travel agents love our antlers:

Kids love our antlers:

What would the Antlers bike be without antlers?

Even dogs like to wear our red antlers!

We’d love to see photos of you and your friends (four-legged or otherwise) decked out in your red Antlers antlers. You might be featured in one of our ads or on this blog–or you could even win fun prizes for wearing your antlers in the most exotic local or taking the wackiest photo. E-mail your photos to RLeVine(at)antlersvail.com,  and if you don’t have your own personal pair of antlers just ask at the front desk and we’ll happily get you outfitted.

Meanwhile, don’t forget to snap a photo the next time you don your antlers on vacation–like this sophisticated traveler who sent us a photo from Torchy’s Damn Good Tacos (which she says they are) in Austin, Texas.

We look forward to seeing you in your antlers!

2012 Gala – Antlers Version

The Vail Valley Partnership recently hosted their annual community awards Gala.  It’s the same gig where the Antlers won Green Business of the Year in 2010 and a few years before that the big prize, Business of the Year.  No awards for us this year, although we were one of three finalists for Spirit of the Vail Valley (formerly the Corporate Citizenship Award).

As usual, the Antlers table was called out as the room’s most raucous.  More than a few folks asked if they could sit at OUR table next year!  New to the picture this year was our choice of headgear (you knew it had to happen).  Wearing them throughout the evening undaunted, we even got the piano player and our photographer friend Ryan Iguchi to don them by night’s end.

NEVER let it be said that we at the Antlers take ourselves too seriously.   Seriously.
