All Obamacare All the Time.

Ok, not really and yet we have a few story links to some things you might have missed and need to know about this ongoing train wreck.

Corning train wreck

Corning train wreck (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Your ObamaCare Fail of the Day. Stephen Green has some questions about the inappropriately named “Affordable Care Act.”

Just as elections have consequences, there are consequences of Obamacare. And of course it’s not a consequence you knew about or saw coming unless you read the fine print. That of course means that you were able to get on line and were able to enroll.

And while we’re on the subject of reading, the 217 page Obamacare training manual for the “Navigators” of the Affordable Care Act, has been released for us all to read and digest.

These are simply three of the ongoing issues, problems and piss poor planning of the Affordable Care Act. It is long past time to repeal, defund and put it behind us and return us to our rightful representative democracy.

Powerful Winter Storm Drops as Much as 14 Inches of Snow

Powerful Winter Storm Drops as Much as 14 Inches of Snow on Vail Resorts’ Vail_Jason-Roberts_12912_KariMohrMountains

  • Vail’s Colorado resorts to add up to 1,500 acres of new terrain for the weekend
  • Canyons in Park City, UT, leads the way with 14 inches of new snow
  • Combination of Mother Nature and ideal snowmaking conditions gives a boost to Vail’s Tahoe resorts

BROOMFIELD, Colo.– Dec. 5, 2013– A powerful and well-timed winter storm swept across the western U.S. Tuesday and Wednesday, touching each one of Vail Resorts’ mountains and leaving up to 14 inches of new snow in its wake. With the Colorado resorts (Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Keystone) ready to add a combined 1,500 acres of new terrain by the weekend, holiday skiers and snowboarders are licking their chops and waxing their powder skis and boards.

“We’re within three weeks of the holidays, so this storm couldn’t have come at a better time whether you’re planning on visiting our resorts in Colorado, Utah or Lake Tahoe,” said Vail Resorts’ chief marketing officer, Kirsten Lynch. “The only problem is if you want to ski over the winter break, you had better act now!”

In Colorado, Vail Mountain, one of the largest ski resorts in the world, anticipates opening more than 500 acres of new terrain soon, including Golden Peak and the Riva Bahn Express Lift (#6), Game Creek Bowl and the Game Creek Express Lift (#7), and the Sourdough Express Lift (#14). This would bring the resort’s skiable acreage to nearly 1,400.

Beaver Creek, where they received over a foot of new snow at the top of the mountain, opened 244 additional acres Wednesday bringing the total acreage to 760 acres. Three more lifts are set to open this weekend including Riverfront Gondola Lift (#7), Lower Beaver Creek Mountain Express Lift (#15) and the Upper Beaver Creek Mountain Express Lift (#18).

At Breckenridge, where they will debut Peak 6 this winter representing the largest ski area expansion in recent memory, they’ve opened another 120 acres thanks to over a foot of new snow, with an additional 300 acres expected to open over the weekend.

Kids ski free at Keystone, and those freeloading rug rats will have 600 new acres to explore by the weekend as the resort expands its terrain from 341 acres to well over 1,000.

Canyons Resort, in Park City, UT, already blessed with the light and dry, was further blessed with the biggest snowfall total, weighing in with a healthy 14 inches. Look for more terrain to open there soon.

With up to nine inches of new snow, and more expected this week, and optimal cold temperatures for the West Coast’s two largest snowmaking systems, Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood are poised to expand terrain this weekend, providing the most open terrain and the best snow surface conditions at Lake Tahoe.

Lift Tickets
For the lowest guaranteed price on lift tickets to Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Canyons, Heavenly, Northstar or Kirkwood (up to 25 percent), guests need only purchase seven days in advance for the Colorado resorts, three days in advance for the Lake Tahoe resorts, and one day for Canyons, Utah. Skiers and riders can call 1-888-216-8538 or visit www.snow.com.

Lodging
Since snow is free, Vail Resorts’ hospitality properties across its mountain resorts are following suit with the ever-popular Ski Free, Stay Free. Guests save up to 30 percent when they book their lift and lodging packages now – by purchasing lift tickets and lodging for three nights they get the fourth day and night free. It can be booked here.

Thanksgiving Proclamation
President George Washington
City of New York, October 3, 1789

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor, and Whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be. That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks, for his kind care and protection of the People of this country previous to their becoming a Nation, for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his providence, which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war, for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed, for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted, for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions, to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually, to render our national government a blessing to all the People, by constantly being a government of wise, just and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed, to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shown kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord. To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and Us, and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Vail Resorts Welcomes Master Sommelier Sean Razee

Vail Resorts Welcomes Master Sommelier Sean Razee as New Beverage Director for Vail Resorts’ Mountain Division

Beaver Creek, Colo.,

Trail Ridge Winery

–Sean Razee, MS, AIWS, has accepted the newly formed position of beverage director for Vail Resorts’ Mountain Dining Division. One of only 135 master sommeliers in North American, Sean brings more than 25 years of experience in the restaurant industry to the mountain dining teams where he will be working collaboratively with the food and beverage directors, restaurant general managers, and sommeliers at all 10 of the company’s resorts.

“We’re fortunate to have someone with Sean’s expertise, especially with his certification as master sommelier, oversee our beverage programs across the Mountain Dining Division,” said Beth Howard, vice president of mountain dining and clubs for Vail Resorts.
Sean developed his knowledge while creating award-winning wine and spirits programs for The Ritz-Carlton and Wolfgang Puck’s Spago.  After gaining the prestigious title of Master Sommelier, Sean went on to complete another internationally recognized diploma from the Wine & Spirits Education Trust.  More recently he also earned the title of Certified Sake Professional.
Prior to accepting the position with Vail Resorts, Sean held the position of Key Account Wine Specialist for Southern Wine & Spirits of Colorado. When not lecturing, conducting staff trainings, or working with aspiring students, Sean also works as one of the teaching and examining Masters for the Court of Master Sommeliers.
Sean’s curiosity in wine was set in motion while studying food science for his under-graduate degree in college and through weekend trips to the Santa Barbara wine-country. His aptitude for the sciences led him toward pursuit of a graduate program in wine-making, but shortly before heading to U.C. Davis, Sean was given the chance to run a wine and spirits program. This turned out to be a watershed moment in Sean’s career, allowing him to combine his love of wine, food, and service.
Although he holds the industry’s most prestigious academic titles, Sean maintains a down-to-earth approach to wine and food, and believes strongly in removing the formality and pretence surrounding wine. Striving to become a “highly-acclaimed” home chef, when he is not on the road visiting each of the resorts, Sean can be found spending much of his free time cooking, exploring exotic markets, and finding innovative food and wine combinations.
