The Jockey Staycool Winter Getaway

We’ll apologize in advance for mentioning the “w” word in spring, BUT we have a good reason. We just received exciting news that the winners from our Jockey Staycool Winter Getaway returned home from their trip (with pictures!). If you missed it, back in November we hosted a contest on our Facebook page offering one lucky fan and a guest an all-expense-paid trip to hit the slopes in beautiful Vail, Colorado.

The winners, Amy and Tony from Florida, were kind enough to share their experiences and trip highlights along with some terrific photos.

“On our first day,” Amy and Tony shared, “We definitely took time getting accustomed to the high altitude. The weather was warm and sunny and we enjoyed exploring the town, settling into our hotel and getting fitted with ski equipment.” Day two included hitting the slopes and brushing up on their skiing skills. “The conditions were icy at first, but the snow softened up as we got more confident with our skis. We spent all day at Mid Vail and also alternated between Mountaintop and Wildwood Express.”

Like any good vacation, hitting up the local restaurants always makes for a good time and awesome eats. This was true for Amy and Tony. “There were so many fabulous restaurants to choose from. Some our favorites were Pepi’s German Restaurant, pizza at Vendetta’s and burgers on the deck at Red Lion.”

We’d love to hear, have you ever been to Vail, Colorado? If so, what are some of your favorite memories?

Now for the fun part – pictures! Thanks to Amy and Tony, we have a few to share with you. Enjoy!
