The transition of the Seasons

As we see the end of our summer season our thoughts turn towards winter.  We have had some light snow on the higher peaks, which is a gorgeous contrast to the colorful aspens that have been filling up our valley the past several weeks.  We’re at the tail end of the foliage season, but there is still some gorgeous color out there on the mountain sides.

This week is a week of celebration.  We have four honeymoon couples, two couples celebrating anniversaries, a couple birthday celebrations and a graduation celebration as well.  Ironic as I just came back from a marketing workshop in Denver last week where they mentioned that one of the top travel trends is celebration trips.  Guess that’s true!  What an honor to have so many people choosing Vista Verde as their place to celebrate these momentous life events!

With the changing of the seasons, we’re gearing up more and more for winter.  Planning the schedules for our winter vacation guests, and mapping out orientation for our winter staff.  We have some fun ideas planned for the winter that we’ll share in our next enewsletter, as well as the favorites that make coming to the ranch in the winter such a special experience.

As the aspens leaves let go and the snow begins to fall, we bundle up, light fires in the fireplace more frequently, and get ready for winter wonderland adventures!
