Antlers Halls and Walls

Some things just don’t last forever and some things simply need to be accented.

The carpet on our walkways outside all the Antlers at Vail condominiums was crying “I’m tired.  I’m worn out and I want to be recycled.”  The Antlers Board and owners granted the wish.  They approved the purchase of 18,000 square feet of new carpet, 240 gallons of glue, 400 lbs of floor leveler, and Castle Peak Carpet Installers to do the job.

Lay down that glue and roll it over.

My favorite.

Our garage walls have been just that for too long…..garage walls.  They were in dire need of some accent pieces. Our underground, heated, well lit parking structure.  now has artwork.  With the permission of long time resident and photographer Jack Affleck, we retained New Vista Image to reproduce some incredible photographs of the Vail Valley.  Mounted on 4′ x 8′ sheets, the color and imagery are amazing.

Tom and Ryan secure some "garage art" for free public viewing.


Mountain Roller Coaster, Glenwood Springs

Many Antlers guests have asked about “mountain roller coasters”.  Vail doesn’t have one at the moment, but we are working on it.  But if you are in the Vail Valley for a week or so, many guests will visit Glenwood Springs Caverns and fun park which has a cave tour, bungey jumping, a mountain roller coaster, food, games, and more.  Here is a quick clip of Darci and Amy from the front desk riding the roller coaster this past spring.

A Fond Farewell

It’s been great year and a half, but I’m sorry to say that I’m moving on from the Antlers. The greener (but only because of all the damn rain) pastures of Seattle await. Thank you to everyone who has made it such a pleasure working here, the owners, frequent guests, and most of all, the rest of our awesome staff. I’m going to miss you guys. But I’ll be back to visit, because who can really leave behind the gorgeous Vail Valley and the colorful cast of characters here at the Antlers? So until then it’s not goodbye, it’s see you later!
