|You can eat all you want and then ski off the calories at the Taste of Vail Food & Wine Festival. Nonstop airfare is $200 from most cities, so pack your bags and your appetite and head for the hills (very high and majestic mountains) of Colorado. The festival, which takes place during the last weekend of ski season, kicks off with the 5th Annual Colorado Lamb Cook-Off in the heart of Vail Village—classic lamb chop dishes and exotic recipes prepared by Vail’s finest chefs, guest chefs and the Colorado Lamb Board, perfectly complemented with fine wines and beers. The festival continues with wine tastings, a mountaintop picnic (10,350 feet above sea level) and a Grand Tasting Dinner with breathtaking Rocky Mountain views. A full, four-day pass to the 19th Annual Taste of Vail is $600 and includes nine events plus all the morning cooking seminars. Find out more at www.tasteofvail.com—and send us a postcard!||
