Vail has selected Leimer-Poma of America to build the new, state-of-art gondola in the Vail Village. The first of it's kind in North America, the cabins will be designed to carry 10-passengers and will feature heated, cushioned seats and Wi-Fi access for guests. The new gondola will travel 1,200 feet per minute which will cut the ride time from 9 to 7 1/2 minutes to Mid-Vail and will be the fastest of it's type in the world, increasing the uphill capacity by 40%. The new gondola will replace the existing Vista Bahn Express Lift (Chair 16). The new gondola is subject to the Town of Vail and the U.S. Forest Service approval.
Last week I gave on the order $1,500 to several different local non-profit groups in Eagle County. This is a part of my gifting program where I pledge to give back 5% of my earnings to a local charity of my real estate Buyer or Seller's choice. This could benefit a cause with which you are passionate......
The recipients for this last round of giving were the Round-Up River Ranch, Vail Valley Foundation, Ski and Snowboard Club Vail, and Habitat For Humanity. They all received money as a result of recent real estate closings I completed in the Vail Valley.
I understand the need for help--I moved to Vail in 1974 and I've been involved wtih several nonprofit organizations through the years.
If you would like to buy or sell Vail Valley real estate, where we all win, please contact:
