We were invited by Vail Mountain and Vail Brasil for an exclusive 5 day ‘Behind the Scenes Experience’ in the beautiful town of Vail.

This was an amazing corporate project we organized in partnership with Azzi & Co – a PR agency based in New York City.

The group explored the town, #UnCovered its secrets, had fun skiing – and falling a lot, ate at the best restaurants and had a few sport adventures high up in the mountains!

The group had renowned Influencers from the U.S. and Brazil. We do hope you enjoy our post and pictures!

Oh! We before heading to Vail, we had a 2 day pitstop in Denver, where we will also posted about what we discovered. Then, we had a beautiful drive up to our ski destination.

Having dinner 10,300 feet up in mountain!!!

So, the supreme restaurant in Vail, the Game Creek Restaurant, is not actually down in the valley, but high up in the mountains!

The experience started off by getting a gondola and going up, up, up in the mountains, with an amazing night view of the valley and a moon light…hard to describe, illuminating the beautiful lined up trees while we flew through them…

Then we jumped into one of those huge snowcats that cruise through the mountains like wild animals in their natural habitat! So cool!

The restaurant is an European style chalet, with a cozy ambience, great wine list and fabulous food! I had the heirloom tomatoes, the best butternut squash I have ever eaten, ratatouille and for desert the pear sticky toffee pudding, all paired with a perfect choice of red wine!!!

The experience is not half as fun, without mentioning extremely exclusive, as actually doing it in real life!

The Game Creek Restaurant is open from 6 – 8:30pm to the public for dinner, after that, only members are allowed in!

Hours:
Winter: Tuesday – Saturday: 5:30pm – 9pm
Summer: Thursday – Saturday: 5:30pm – 8:30pm | Sunday: Brunch 11am – 2pm
*Reservations are required!*

Location: Game Creek Bowl, in the back bowls of Vail Mountain

#UnCovering Denver before our skiing experience in Vail

We landed in Denver, Colorado, 2 days prior of heading up towards our breathtaking skiing experience in Vail. So, we decided to explore the city a bit.

Denver is a very charming city, and we had a great time just exploring it and walking around.

The city has a little over 680,000 people and it houses some of the most amazing 19th-century buildings, museums and landscapes.

These are a few of the places we went to:

For our healthy start in Denver, we went for lunch at True Food Kitchen. We do love healthy, seasonal and sustainable food, so it was the perfect place! Yes, they do have other restaurants in other cities across the U.S., but we had never gone there before. Nonetheless, they have a very good healthy menu that we really enjoyed.

We coincidently picked the top choices on their menu, and loved them all! These were our dishes:

  • Edamame Dumplings with a delicious white truffle oil
  • A to-drool-for “Inside-out” Quinoa Burger with hummus, avocado, feta, and other great ingredients
  • Winter Ingredient Salad had brussels sprouts, squash, mulberry, pomegranate

Do ask for dessert! They are all extremely tempting, and we just couldn’t get enough. We ordered the Flourless Chocolate Cake. It’s gluten free and vegetarian, with 72{c8399be91965ff06a5fa23750b49beaf0bc09e4b1c94b50d52f75c5d1635bbfd} cocoa, vanilla ice cream, almond butter and caramel. We also tried the Chia Seed Pudding with banana and coconut flakes, that was fantastic!

Last, but definitely not least, we tried the Genmaicha Green Tea with almond milk and vanilla!

And, the best news for us, healthy New Yorkers, is that they’ll be opening a beautiful and huge 3 story place this next fall! So, keep your eyes opened.

Union Station of Denver

Our Experts Recaps Denver Union Station InsideAny place, is a work place, right?! Well, we think this way and any place with chairs, we pop opened our laptop.

So as we were walking around and exploring Denver and we bumped into the Union Station of Denver which was actually very interesting!

It was built in 1881 and they have restored the place beautifully!

We stopped there to work a bit, but we did walk around it too.

There are some nice restaurants, bars, retail stores with handmade stuff, candles, scarves, etc!

It also hosts the Crawford Hotel, so do check it out!

At night, we decided to have dinner at a very trendy, relatively new restaurant named Bar Dough. It’s located in the Highlands neighborhood, today considered an upcoming, cool place to live.

We ordered a few different dishes, since we were curious about them all, so we decided to share everything and have a taste of each.

Our choices were: Garlic Bread – in-house made focaccia, parmesan, parsley, Oven Roasted Carrot – farro, chickpeas, carrot, cumin vinaigrette, Grilled Octopus – charred eggplant, caponata, toasted pistachio, mustard frill, King Trumpet Mushroom – guanciale vinaigrette, and for dessert the Fried Dough – served w/ lemon curd, caramel, hot chocolate sauce.

It was all very, very good! Plus the space is great, with a beautiful crowd.

“Fire” away to start off the day!

On our second and last day, we had breakfast at Fire Restaurant, located inside this super cool artsy hotel in Denver, called The Art Hotel. With a beautiful architecture, a fabulous view and a phenomenal service, it’s definitely done with the heART.

They host original art works and collections of 20th and 21st century artists from around the world, which does make a difference when you’re exploring the place!

To start off a dazzling new day, we had an amazing Smoked Salmon Benedict – to die for – and black coffee, which we love!

Thank you Chef Chris, and the team – Dan, Quenton and Aaron!
