We Did It!
In the second week of August – the absolute busiest time of my year – my friend Dave Cole gave me an ad from the Vail Daily, the newspaper in Vail, Colorado. The ad announced
Vail Mountain's 50th Anniversary Poster Design Contest
which Dave was suggesting I enter.
The poster design had to speak to the famous resort's history, its founders, the town's unmatched atmosphere and the scope of its skiing experiences ... and I had until September 1st to have it done(!) I love skiing and I've always wanted to see Vail, I couldn't pass up this up.
I showed early designs to Dave, a long-time Vail resident, and followed his suggestions. Finally, my entry arrived in Vail on September 1, and about one week later I got the news -
! From thoroughbred horses to thoroughbred skiing! I was just so thrilled and honored to be working with one of the most famous mountain resorts on earth.
In the week that followed the announcement we worked to produce the poster which is now on sale in Vail. Pretty soon I'll get my wish to see the legendary
between my skis! It doesn't get any better than that. Thank you, Vail. Thank you, Dave.
Success! Feel free to
