Sometimes, I am asked why I like Vail so much. “You seem like a down-to-earth person,” they’ll say. “Why Vail?” That’s because a lot of people associate Vail with a sort of pretension that’s been hard for the destination to shake, and maybe some would rather not. Let’s face it, if you think a place is a certain way, it’s likely that you’ll find it that way when you visit.
