A Return After 35 Years

We always say how much we love our guests. Many really do become like part of our family. But every once in a while, one reminds us of something else to love. There is nothing more rewarding than knowing that you helped create a memory that brings someone back home to the Antlers. And, that even after 35 years there is one thing that hasn’t changed — the heart and soul of the Antlers — our dedication to warmly welcoming guests to our home.

Melissa and Jeff Gilchrist first visited us thirty-five years ago. They met in college in Wisconsin. They were married on June 29, 1986 outside of Chicago. The following day on June 30, 1986 they arrived at the Antlers at Vail. Things were very different then. They planned their honeymoon using a travel agent and brochures that the agent provided to them.

Cover of Antlers at Vail print brochure that helped the Gilchrists decide upon Antlers as Vail as their honeymoon destination in 1985.

Vail became their chosen destination because it was a place where they could both enjoy the different things they like to do. Jeff loves to fish. Melissa was looking for relaxation and hiking in a beautiful environment. Those things haven’t changed.

In 1985 they paid $70 per night and received their seventh night free. They remember loving the kitchen and open floorplan of their condominium. Their favorite restaurant during that visit, Le Petit Cafe, sadly is no longer around. There are a few more homes across the Gore Creek, where Jeff caught many, many trout.

This visit Jeff had more luck on a guided fishing tour than in Gore Creek. Melissa has really enjoyed the loaner bikes the Antlers now offers, as well as the other amenities. She’s been taking new hikes up the mountain and really getting away from it all. One morning she set out and didn’t see another person for more than two hours. She’s enjoyed the beauty of the river, the convenience of the village and that there’s plenty of things to choose from without getting overwhelmed.

Their first visit to Vail they have wonderful memories of a visit to Piney Lake. This visit they explored historic Leadville one day.

Map of Lionshead village from 1985. Much has changed.

In addition to the location and amenities, the thing that really stuck out to the Gilchrists about the Antlers is the motto, “The answer is yes, now what’s the question.” They saw that motto in action with the attentiveness that General Manager Magda King and Head Housekeeper Gladys Contreras showed them upon arrival. They were impressed with the cleanliness of housekeeping and responsiveness of the Antlers engineering department.

In the years since their first visit, Melissa and Jeff have raised two children. One of whom is now raising their own family. The other has an upcoming wedding this summer.

Our only question is whether it will take Melissa and Jeff another thirty five years to return. We hope not!

Thank you to Melissa and Jeff for sharing their story and memories with us. You have our heartfelt gratitude.

Celebrating Our Graduates

This past weekend we had the privilege of celebrating some amazing high school graduates. We couldn’t be more proud of Amalia, Owen and Vicky on their High School Graduation. Congratulations!

Congratulations to Amalia, Owen & Vicky on their high school graduation!

Amalia is the daughter of Chris Manning, our Front Desk Manager, Owen is Kim’s son, our Assistant General Manager, and Victoria is Cristina’s daughter, our Executive Housekeeper. We are proud of these kids and their parents! We are certain many success will follow them.

Amalia Manning

Amalia is a humble, reserved woman who attempts to do everything to the very best she can. She started walking at 9 months, in ski boots and a climbing harness before she was 2.  Being the middle girl with 2 other sisters – she is always keeping up and at the same time pushing her sisters (and we should say parents also).  Tessa (Mom, wife) and I have given up on trying to follow some of the climbing routes she can do.

She has participated in the battle mountain climbing team throughout high school and has been on the podium every year for the State competition (2nd place freshman year, 3nd place sophomore year, 3rd place Junior year and 2nd place her senior year). In addition, she also has been a part of the cross country team throughout high school and lettered.

I talk about physical activities but she is mighty bright also.  Top 10% of her class, National Honor Society Member and AP Scholar.  We are going to miss her next year.

Out of all the top schools she had a selection of, she decided to go with Colorado College.  You may know an alumni that attended there – yep, Rob LeVine.

The beautiful thing for Tessa and I is that since she is attending college in Colorado Springs her telemark skis will not be gathering too much dust.  We will hope that she will get the true college experience and not have to be attending on line learning for her freshman year.



Owen Ruotolo

Owen is a true Vail native. He was born in the Vail hospital and has lived in West Vail his entire life.

During high school, Basketball was a major focus for him . He was Captain of the Varsity Basketball team for 2 years, was named 1st Team Academic All State & All League, and three times received the the “Husky” award for leadership.

Owen also played on the Golf team, earning his Varsity letter twice and qualifying for Regionals.  

He was a member of National Honor Society and graduated in the top 10% of the Battle Mountain High School Class of 2020. He also is recognized as an AP Scholar with Honor. In 2019 he was chosen as a Steadman Philippon Research Institute Summer Scholar.

Owen worked for three years as an outside staff member at the Vail Golf Club. In the fall Owen will attend the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill to study Biochemistry.  



Victoria “Vicky” Rosado

Vicky is originally from Guayaquil-Ecuador. On 2006  she emigrated to New York with her parents at only 4 years old.  Vicky started living the American dream in 2011 when she and her mom moved  to the Eagle Valley. Here she  developed the love for alpine and nordic skiing.

During middle school she took back up her favorite sport, tennis. In her freshman year she started playing for  VMS Gore Range Tennis Junior Varsity team. Vicky was able to make the Varsity team after 2 years wining the Bibbo Award in 2018!

Vicky has embraced her Hispanic roots and culture been an active member of the Student Council at the Battle Mountain High School for 4 years. She has been a active  member of the  Spanish mentors program. And, finally in her senior was able to obtain her Seal bilaterally after 3 years in the making.

In the summer 2019 Vicky gained her certification as a bilingual teacher assistant for the Eagle County Schools and has worked  for the Sandstone and June Creek  preschool since then.  

Vicky enjoys traveling and is enchanted by Art History. Her goal is to visit 100 museums before 20th birthday.

During the winter 2020 Vicky  earned her US Citizenship.

She was accepted in the Le Moyne Jesuit College in Syracuse, New York having earned the Latoya Scholarship due her academics scores. Due to the recent pandemic she has decided to defer her first year an go to an small Community College  “DCC” in Duchess County  NY.

10 Things to Do in Vail Besides Skiing

This guest post is written by Vail local Gina Parrish of Make a Date of It, a website dedicated to creating date, travel, and gift ideas out of the things you already love so you can have more fun and stress less. Subscribe to their newsletter and follow them on social @makeadateofit.

When you think of Vail in winter, you probably think of skiing. After all, Vail has a reputation for being home to some of the best ski terrain in the world. 

However, here’s a secret the locals have been reluctant to tell you: that’s not all winter in Vail has to offer. 

As a veritable winter wonderland, Vail has no shortage of activities. From trekking the unbeaten path on snowshoes, to chucking snowballs at your loved ones, there is always something to do in Vail, even when skiing isn’t an option. 

We’ve made a list of 10 outdoor activities to try out while you are here. Which are you going to do first?

1. Snowshoe

Photo by Patrick Hendry

Get outdoors and enjoy Colorado’s local scenery on snowshoes. On mountain and off, there are plenty of trails to check out within the area. We suggest Booth Falls Trail in East Vail or heading over to Minturn’s Grouse Creek Trail. Dress in light protective layers and, if the sun is shining, don’t forget the sunglasses and sunscreen!

The Antlers at Vail offers a limited number of snowshoes for guests to use on a first-come-first-serve basis. Inquire at the front desk.

2. Walk

If snowshoeing feels a bit too extreme, there are areas you can enjoy a walk without the need for snowshoes. Gore Valley Trail, the bike path that leads from East to West Vail, while for the most part unmaintained, tends to get packed down in winter. The scenic path follows Gore Creek and is enjoyable at any time of year. Wear snow boots with decent traction or crampons, then get walking and take in the fresh air.

3. Take a Scenic Drive

Photo by Alexandra Avelar

So long as the weather is nice (that is, it’s not snowing and the roads are dry), why not take a scenic drive and admire the beautiful mountain views? A day trip to Red Cliff or Leadville takes you along spectacular Battle Mountain Pass, a scenic byway sporting brilliant views and plenty of pull offs for photographs. 

4. Photography (+ Free Photo Scavenger Hunt!)

Time to pull out that camera on your phone and start taking photos! Vail not only has amazing nature views, but also spectacular art and architecture. Download our FREE Vail Photo Scavenger Hunt Challenge to print or use on your phone for inspiration.

5. Window Shop

Vail has two pedestrian villages full of shops and galleries to explore. Tour the galleries, observe the latest mountain trends, and people watch. The local retailers are always finding new ways to impress. 

6. Build a Snowman

No matter your age, you are never too old to play in the snow. Use items you find in nature, like pine cones and fallen branches, to craft the perfect snowman. Bonus points if it looks like you!

7. Have a Snowball Fight

This one is not just for the kids, either. Snow has many possibilities–you can ski on it, step on it, build with it, and of course throw it at each other. Just be sure to use the soft stuff.

8. Fat Tire Biking

Biking? In the winter? Yes, it’s a thing. Rent fat tire bikes from a nearby retailer and take to the bike paths for a day of extreme fun. Check out the Vail Valley Mountain Trails Alliance recommendations on what trails to ride and where to rent.

9. Local Beer Tasting

Colorado is known as a hub for the craft brewery scene, and Vail is no exception. Vail Brewing Company, 7 Hermits Brewing Company, and Bonfire Brewing all brew tasty suds in the Eagle River Valley. 

Want to do a tasting of your own? Local retailers like West Vail Liquor have a wide selection of local beers.

10. Learn the Local History

It is always fascinating to learn the history of places you visit, and Vail is no exception. Several years ago, for Vail’s 50th anniversary, Vail put out a video history series, perfect to watch before exploring the iconic town. As you tour the villages, see if you can recognize the old and the new parts of Vail.

Another great resource is the Colorado Ski Museum, which has online access to pieces from their collections, as well as their Hall of Fame.

Enjoy the Amenities

You can also take advantage of evenings in at the hotel. The Antlers at Vail has a vast DVD movie collection, as well as a great selection of board games. These are complimentary to guests of the hotel and would make for the perfect family fun night. 

Each Antlers at Vail residence also features a fully equipped kitchen. The Antlers offers a complimentary shuttle service to anywhere from East Vail to West Vail, including the local grocery stores. Try out a new recipe, like those in Ski Town Life, collected from ski town restaurants around the country.

Antlers Art | Artists in Residence at the Antlers at Vail

Unique Artistic Additions at the Antlers at Vail

It’s official – the Antlers at Vail has a beautiful, spacious new lobby and a speedy new elevator that accesses all floors of the hotel. Local interior design firm Casey St. John has crafted bespoke interiors for the new space. Large windows pour natural light into the new lobby and elevator foyer. General Manager, Magdalena King, wanted to tie together these new spaces with art that would not only adorn the lobby, but would be unique to the Antlers. She wanted this art to enhance our guests’ and homeowners’ feeling of being in the mountains. She sought to commission two very talented artists to help her achieve this goal. Enter artists Cindee Lundin and Bonnie Wakeman who have fulfilled this vision and created one-of-a-kind pieces for the Antlers at Vail. 

Cindee Lundin, Faux Bois Artist

I had the opportunity to talk with Cindee Lundin a few weeks back, and had the pleasure of asking her questions about her as an artist and the pieces she has created for the Antlers at Vail. Cindee was an educator, and also painted murals in people’s homes. She has always had a knack for painting and enjoys it immensely. While studying to continue her career as an educator, one of her clients encouraged her to study art and painting instead. 

On the way to Artistry 

Cindee felt compelled to study art and wanted to pursue her passion. She changed fields of study, and began studying art fundamentals and art history. Cindee has now been creating art for her clients for 25 years. Cindee is intrigued by concrete faux bois art. Concrete faux bois is the artistic rendition of creating the appearance of wood grain using cement, stones, and gems. Faux bois art is now recognizable by many. Martha Stewart even began featuring her own faux bois collection a few years ago. Cindee is proud to create faux bois pieces and enjoys being part of this artistic movement.

Custom Faux Boix Panels for the Antlers at Vail

The collection she has created for the Antlers at Vail is all original and unique to the hotel. There are 73 pieces in all. From Cindee’s Artist Statement; Images of mountains are carved into concrete, trees are represented in the faux bois panels, the minerals and the riches of the mountain are symbolized with natural stone elements, semi-precious gemstones and crystals. The movement of the mountain streams are also represented throughout the compositions. The connection between us and nature is strong here. Cindee will be in residence with us in the spring of 2020 when she will install her faux bois panels.  

Bonnie Wakeman, Sculpted Relief Artist

A sculpted and painted scene of a majestic elk in front of the Gore Range is one of the first decorative elements you will notice upon entering the Antlers lobby. Bonnie Wakeman recently completed this sculpted relief when she was in residence at Antlers last month. Bonnie was gracious enough to take some time away from creating the sculpted relief to speak with me about the piece she has created and her journey as an artist.

From Illustrator to Sculptor

Bonnie’s background is in illustration and design. She moved to the mountains in the early nineties. Bonnie began painting murals in her clients’ homes in Keystone, Breckenridge, and Vail. In 1995 her and her husband took a trip to Italy where she noticed sculpted relief everywhere. She wanted to bring this back to the US and so began crafting a plaster medium which can be sculpted wet and dry. Everything she has worked on in her life has come together in this art form. The pieces she creates involve mountain scenes and aspen groves, African safaris and lions, as well as any other scene her clients bring inspiration and passion to. She enjoys bringing the beauty of nature indoors through sculpted relief. Every blank wall she sees now looks to her a fresh canvas. 

A Sculpted Relief that just suits the Antlers

The incorporation of antlers through a bull elk and the Gore Range in the background is one of the elements of this piece that she loves most. The aspens give the impression of being in a grove as the limbs even wrap around the adjacent walls. She has enjoyed partnering with the Antlers at Vail to create a piece that was exciting for her to design, sculpt, and paint.

We are delighted to share these talented artists’ work with our guests and homeowners. 

Are you interested in commissioning art similar to what you have experienced at the Antlers at Vail for your own home or business? Please visit Cindee Lundin’s website Sticks and Stones Decor and Bonnie Wakeman’s website Transforming Walls to contact the artists directly.

Antlers at Vail employees lend a helping hand to Roundup River Ranch

Antlers at Vail Employees Volunteer

In the shoulder season, activity around the Antlers at Vail slows down a little. It’s in this season that our staff likes to take time to see how we can give back to our community. There are a wide variety of excellent charitable organizations in the Vail Valley. One Sunday this fall, we shuttled down-valley to Gypsum to give our friends at Roundup River Ranch a helping hand.

About Roundup River Ranch

Roundup River Ranch is an incredible organization. They specialize in providing children the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors at summer camp. The children invited to Roundup River Ranch are some of the bravest around; they are those that face serious illnesses everyday. Their campers have the opportunity to take a true vacation from being “a patient” and get back to the fun of being a child. At the camp children are provided the medical, physical and emotional support of healthcare professionals – All the while having a great time participating in activities like horseback riding, canoeing, stargazing, and making arts and crafts. Camp at Roundup River Ranch is always free of charge for all kids and families who attend. This worthy non-profit is funded by the communities that the camp serves.

We were grateful for the opportunity to volunteer with Roundup River Ranch. We spent a day out of the office, and away from the condominiums that we usually look after, to clean the facilities at Roundup River Ranch. At the end of their busy summers it’s all about the cleaning, and we were happy to pitch in for the cause. Some photos of our staff helping out are shown in the gallery below. If you would like to make a donation to Roundup River Ranch, we invite you do so. Just visit the Roundup River Ranch website by following this link.

New 2-Bedroom Residence at Antlers Nears Completion

Celebrating International Housekeeping Week

To celebrate International Housekeeping Week, the Antlers housekeeping team took a field trip to the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens.

Sunday – Management provided the housekeeping team with breakfast, including breakfast burritos, yogurt, fresh fruit, donuts & pastries, juice & smoothies.

Wednesday – Karaoke Margarita Party

Thursday – Pampering Extravaganza – chair massages plus gift bags that include face masks, hand lotions, bath bombs, and aromatherapy candles
