Our Timeshare Condo in Vail

Another View of Timeshare

A View of the Mountains from Vail

Today we go to the RV Office to retrieve our cinnamon rolls. They are huge, about eight inches in diameter, and we have them with coffee on the deck. When we finish, we leave for Vail which is about thirty three miles east. When we get there, we head to Vail Run which is the Condo where we have a timeshare that we have owned for over twenty years but have never seen. It is a very nice five story building. Our unit is on the third floor and is occupied but the girl at the desk lets us visit an identical unit on the fourth floor. It is a pretty studio with two sleep sofas, a dining table, flat screen TV with DVD, full kitchen with dishwasher, a huge closet and dresser and full bath. We are very impressed. The building has a concierge, beauty shop, exercise room and numerous shops as well as a pizza restaurant and indoor and outdoor pools. It is on I-70 but our unit is on the back side and has a mountain view from its small deck. When we leave the condo we drive to the village of Vail. There is not a lot of parking so we just drive through. Vail is really not much more than a village surrounded by condominiums but you can see all kinds of ski slopes on the mountains behind town. From Vail, we travel about ten miles down the road to the Beaver Creek area. This is a gated area and we stop to get a visitor pass at the gate then drive to this ski village. Again there is little parking and we drive around looking at the shops and hotels. There are not as many condos in this area, more large expensive homes. In both Vail and Beaver Creek there are golf courses and many people even in this off season. When we get back to Gypsum, we stop at the local grocery store. The RV Resort has given us coupons for a pound of deli meat, a pound of ground beef and a loaf of french bread and we get these and a few other items, then return to the RV Resort. We spend the remainder of the afternoon doing laundry then eat dinner and get ready to travel.
