Vail Daily News

Vail, Beaver Creek and Eagle Valley, Colorado News
  1. EAGLE — Even if they have never met her, chances are downvalley residents have seen Holli Snyder’s creativity in action.Maybe they have seen one of the 6-foot-tall decorated cowboy boots or massive globes stationed around town. Perhaps they have noticed some large-scale banners that boast a hint of pink. These visual reminders are a glimpse into Snyder’s imaginative thinking and a promise of what’s to come when she begins a new job with a whole slew of new opportunities.‘Tried and true Jayhawk’While she has called Eagle County home for a couple of decades now, Snyder still calls herself a “tried …
  2. Sexual harassment is one of those terms can be tough to define, but we think we know it when we see it.Television legend Katie Couric smiled at the talk show host with whom she was chatting and said her least favorite part about the 15 years she worked with Matt Lauer was him “pinching her on the a-- a lot.”Yeah, that meets almost all Americans’ standards for sexual harassment.The Barna Group, a faith-based research firm, conducted a nationwide survey of Americans to find out what we mean when we call something sexual harassment.We agree on the big stuff — touching …
  3. LAKEWOOD — Battle Mountain boys basketball went 2-1 during this weekend’s Paul Davis Classic.After losing the open to Central, 59-49, the Huskies got their footing with a 69-61 win over Erie on Friday, Dec. 8, and an overtime win over host Green Mountain, 59-57 on Saturday, Dec 9.The big takeaway from the tourney is that Battle Mountain (4-1) got production from players not named Devin Huffman.Both David Caballero and Qwahn Kent were in double digits in points against Erie and Green Mountain. Since everyone in Colorado will try to double-down (or more) on Huffman, the Huskies have to get production …
  4. COPPER MOUNTAIN — On a day when seven American men attempted to get ahead on Olympic qualification via a podium finish at the U.S. Grand Prix World Cup snowboarding finals at Copper Mountain Resort on Saturday, Dec. 9, it was Ben Ferguson of Bend, Oregon, who left the Woodward superpipe in the best position.At the first Olympic qualifier of the season, Ferguson was awarded an 89.75 on his second run.

  5. EAGLE COUNTY — The local moguls kids had a good weekend in Ruka, Finland.We call them kids because Tess Johnson, 17, and Matt Leseur, 18, are, indeed, growing up as they take on the World Cup in the sport of freestyle moguls skiing.Leseur is a West Vail resident and 2017 graduate of Vail Ski & Snowboard Academy, where Johnson, of Edwards, is now a senior.Leseur competes for Bermuda as he has dual citizenship with that nation and the U.S. You might call it a less competitive team than the U.S. freestyle squad, where Johnson was one of five Americans to …
  6. The Geminids meteor shower is one of the most spectacular meteor showers you will see, and lucky for us, it comes every year. Annually, meteors get increasingly visible around mid-December and peak on the night of Wednesday, Dec. 13, into the morning of Thursday, Dec. 14. This phenomenon is known as the Geminids meteor shower. Unlike most meteor showers, an asteroid — instead of a comet — causes the Geminids. The asteroid, 3200 Phaethon, takes 1.4 years to orbit the sun and can bring 120 meteors per hour at its peak. The meteor shower is named after the constellation Gemini …

  8. A rambling commentary about populationThere’s too many people — in Eagle County, in Colorado and on up to the whole world. Last Sunday’s Denver Post had a long article dealing with this situation (“More Coloradans moving out as population growth brings traffic headaches, higher home prices,” Sunday, Dec. 3). It appears the number of people coming to this state, versus the number leaving, is still positive for the incoming; but by less and less as time goes by. Reasons given for leaving include high housing costs and traffic. There have been a number of stories recently about how Vail may …

SUMMIT COUNTY — Local governments across northwest Colorado are quietly lining up behind an ambitious effort to build a more reliable regional broadband network that could deliver higher internet speeds at lower costs by marshaling the collective buying power of local towns and counties. The Northwest Colorado Council of Governments program, called Project THOR, is still in its infancy but has already won commitments from the town of Breckenridge, city of Glenwood Springs and Pitkin County.

  13. French freeskier Marie Martinod hopped the blue fence at the base of the Woodward superpipe and dashed uphill just a few moments after she officially was crowned champion women’s ski halfpipe at the U.S. Grand Prix World Cup at Copper Mountain.About a third of the way up the 520-foot long pipe, Martinod’s teammate Benoit Valentin lay in a crumpled heap after he severely injured his leg on his final run. Though Martinod took home the title, the pomp and circumstance of the moment wasn’t too much for the 2014 Olympics halfpipe silver medalist to console her teammate and friend.“He’s my …
  14. Although Friday, Dec. 8’s World Cup ski halfpipe champion David Wise was the only American to finish in the top four at the U.S. Grand Prix World Cup at Copper Mountain Resort, the 27-year-old and reigning Olympic halfpipe gold medalist believes his competition is the best he’s ever seen.

  20. Editor’s note: Find a cited version of this letter at www.vaildaily.com.Quoting Rep. Suzan DelBene (D-Washington), “As a former CEO, I know what makes our economy strong are the foundational things that have always made this country great: skilled workers, innovative ideas, a stable business climate, modern infrastructure and a world-class university system that helps turn cutting-edge research into successful businesses — not indiscriminate corporate tax cuts.”History proves that America’s economy boomed after FDR increased taxes on the wealthy and established programs that helped the poor, elderly, middle class and returning war veterans. FDR’s programs gave federal jobs to build a …
