That’s right, I have unofficially decided that the singular title for an employee at the Antlers at Vail Condos is “Antler.” This is largely because I really like the alliteration it gives the title. But enough digression. I’m looking to bring you loyal readers a new regular column here on the blog. Not to compete with, but to supplement Ratz’s regular snow updates. I endeavor here to bring you a local’s insight into anything and everything Vail through interviews with our loyal and dedicated staff. First up is Amy Scherm, a 2 season veteran of the Antlers front desk and even longer Vail local.
Favorite Chair or Run on Vail: Chair 2.
Ed’s Note: She’s not exactly lying, but to really find out you’ll need to go skiing with her (and try to keep up).
Best Pizza: Old Forge Pizza. The garlic knots are the best.
Best Apres Ski: Garf’s. It’s got a good scene and plenty of TV’s to watch the game.
Ed’s Note: On a sunny day they have a killer deck too. And I suppose its there on a not sunny day. But its best enjoyed on a sunny day.
Best Fine Dining Restaurant: Lancelot. Great steaks, and great portions for the price.
Best Non-Skiing Activity: Ski Biking. Its fast, and its dark out.
Best Gear/Rental Shop: Ski Base.
Best Nightlife: Is it cheesy to say The Club?
Best Reason to Look Forward to the Snow Going Away: The activities: mountain biking, hiking, whitewater rafting… and the weather.
Best Reason to Go Downvalley: The movie theater (the only one within 20 miles of Vail) and Loaded Joe’s. Loaded Joe’s is great for morning coffee and drinks at night.
Anything Else? Best Lodging: Antlers at Vail
So there we have it, straight from the local’s mouth. Tune in again sometime soon when I will interview whoever else happens to be working with me the next time I remember to write one of these. In the meantime, if there’s anything you’d like someone’s take on next week, leave me a comment or drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Amy dropping some cliffs. Again…
