Vail Valley Mountain Bike Association
Coming from Michigan and Vermont Jamie Malin and Peter Geyer had been involved in trail building with their local IMBA chapters. They saw firsthand what a group of passionate trail enthusiasts could do to improve their local trail network. One evening Peter and Jamie were talking about how much better riding could be here in the Vail Valley. Unlike most they decided that talk was cheap and if they did not take action maybe no one would. They formed the Vail Vally Mountain Bike Association in 2011 along with John McDade. Passion for building sustainable trail led them to meet others like Lee Rimel and Jeff Thompson and soon they were digging in the dirt. In 4 short years the VVMBA has become a force in the Vail Valley rallying locals to work in their backyards on their favorite trail. By building a small army of experienced trail crew leaders VVMBA can handle volunteer days of up to 300 people. Planning and advocacy can be powerful tools when working with local land managers. VVMBAs vision for making the Vail Valley a world class mountain biking destination is becoming a reality.
Colorado Brewers Guild
The Colorado Brewers Guild (CBG) is a non-profit trade association who promotes and protects the Colorado craft brewing industry. With the majority of the 300 licensed Colorado breweries as members, CBG provides information for Colorado beer lovers, and promotes Colorado craft breweries by advocating for Colorado craft beer with policymakers.

Town of Vail

Under blue skies more than 300 days each year, Vail is an extraordinary mountain resort destination. The vacation experience is exceptional, from the awe-inspiring terrain and natural beauty of the surrounding Gore and Sawatch Ranges to world-class events, activities and festivals, shops and spas, and the abundant culinary experiences and luxurious accommodations that line the pedestrian-friendly streets of Vail Village and Lionshead. Vail is where outdoor pursuits meet village sophistication. Offering more than 5,200 acres of developed ski and snowboard terrain including seven legendary Back Bowls in winter, and flourishing with new summer activities in preparation for the debut of Epic Discovery in 2016, the options for year-round adventure are endless. Coupled with the vision inherent in the spirit of Vail’s founders, and a modern day commitment to excellence in all aspects of guest service and operations, Vail is a mountain resort like nothing on earth.

Food and drink celebrate the culinary heritage of Colorado at Gessner. This delicious blend echoes Vail’s heritage-inspired by the Rocky Mountains complimenting Gessner’s location overlooking Gore Creek, within the seasonally inspired activity of Grand Hyatt Vail.
