How I Recovered After Being Sidelined by an Injury

By Tracy Greenhalgh


Like most of you, I’ve counted on my body to propel, or at least roll, me out of bed in the mornings and move me through my busy days. Physical activity has always been a given for me and I’m like a puppy who needs to get outside and “play in the yard” on the daily.  I just assumed I’d always be able to pursue any activity, sport or movement I wanted, and that my body would automatically cooperate, like a faithful, fit golden retriever.


The American Eagle is NOW OPEN!

We're so excited to announce that the American Eagle is now open. This combination lift of eight-person gondola cabins and six-person chairs follows the same footprint as the former American Eagle providing access to intermediate and advanced terrain out of Center Village. There will be two separate load lines - one for gondola cabins and one for chairs.
