“Pineapple Express” — that comes around perhaps only once a decade, is delivering terrific ski conditions for Vail, Beaver Creek and Breckenridge in Winter 2016-17. The Natural Resources Conservation Service reports that Colorado’s statewide snow-pack level is 157 percent of the normal and at 148 percent as compared to last year. The snow-pack so far this year is far above what it has been measured at on the same date dating back to 2014. Officials say the snow that has hit Colorado this week stems from the Atmospheric River — also known as the Pineapple Express — which carries moisture across the West from the Pacific Ocean.
We are experiencing typical Vail hotel construction with 3 properties undergoing major renovations. First, the Holiday Inn sold and will be reopening as a DoubleTree by Hilton Vail. Charter Sports is proud to announce our continued partnership with this improved property, scheduled to open in March or April. Next, there was the redevelopment of Lionshead Inn and Best Western Vail Glo, which is scheduled to open this summer under the management of East West Properties, and will be named the Lion Vail Residences, or simply The Lion. This development is most exciting, as it is a luxury property conveniently located in close proximity to our 4 Charter Sports Lionshead locations. Lastly, there is the sale and redevelopment of the Vail Cascade Resort and Spa which will reopen as Hotel Talisa Vail. This project was scheduled for opening this season, but has experienced countless delays and now hopes to open in March, but that is unlikely from the looks of construction. Unfortunately, Charter Sports will no longer possess the commercial space as the owner, Laurus Corporation, decided not to renew our lease. If you are staying in the Cascade Village condos or Liftside, and still desire working with Charter Sports, we are happy to deliver rental gear to your hotel room or property through Premier Ski Delivery. Call with any questions, or to make reservations 888-295-9797. When the dust settles, we want you to know, you can count on Charter Sports and Premier Ski Delivery to provide friendly, professional, and quality rentals at an affordable price!
