Vail Firefighters Combat Challenge at Altitude

Vail Firefighter Combat Challenge, August 28 – 29, 2010
The “toughest 2 minutes in sports” Vail Firefighter Combat Challenge is scheduled for Ford Park parking lot on August 28-29, beginning at noon on Saturday the 28th at 10am on Sunday the 29th. There will be a special “Kids’ Firefighter Combat Challenge” that the kids will love. Bring the family.

The Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge provides a snapshot of one of the most physically demanding and respected of occupations.  It is an intense, spirited competition that demonstrates to the viewing public the nature of the job – and no job is more dependant upon the physical prowess of its work force.  The Challenge is an embodiment of the essence of firefighting – an urgent race against time, and time is the mortal enemy of firefighters as fire doubles in size every 90 seconds!  Visit www.firefighterchallenge.com for more information.

Vail Farmers Market

Baklava, cupcakes and a mechanical bull are not your typical farmers market finds-but Vail is not your typical farmers market. With over 100 vendors the Vail Farmers Market & Art Show is the largest in the Colorado Rockies. The market is held each Sunday from 10am to 3:30pm on Meadow Drive in Vail Village. It is a quick ride on the In-Town bus from the Antlers at Vail. You can find everything from locally grown produce to hand crafted clothes and jewelry and even some home made dog treats. The last farmers market will be on September 26 so be sure to check it out.

Who Let The Dogs Out?

The Serac Adventure Film School stopped by for a stay at the Antlers during the Teva Games. Stacy Jacobs put together this short piece: Who Let the Dogs Out?

Check it out and have a laugh. Could you get your dog to take the plunge??

As some of the rooms at the Antlers accept pets, many of these pets featured in the film stayed right here with us during the Teva games.

“Antlers” Siting at the TEVA Games

There is plenty to do and see here in Vail this weekend with the TEVA Games, USA Climbing and SERAC Adventure Film School. One of the perks of being a host property is the opportunity to be a part of the action by setting up a tent on Meadow Creek Drive. With the Antlers out and about, there was bound to be followers…

Our Antlers are a BIG hit!

We have plenty in stock so just ask for one when you check in.
