New and Improved EagleVail Nordic Trail
This year, due to the increased interest in Homestake Peak School's Nordic Ski Club, the Ski and Snowboard Club of Vail has partnered with EagleVail and HPS to offer better ski conditions to the HPS kids as well as the greater EV community. Together, we have created a "Cross Country Only" ski trail on the Par 3 golf course, soccer, and baseball fields which is maintained by SSCV, but open for all skiers. This trail is not designed for other uses such as hiking, snowshoeing etc. as it is groomed for skiing. Please look for the light green signs marking the trail as "Nordic Skiers Only".
The trail that was established in Pavilion Park for multi-use, including “Safe Routes to School” still exists. It extends from Eagle Drive across from the Driving Range parking lot to the Willow Creek Clubhouse (Par 3). It will continue to be regularly groomed for walkers, snowshoers, cyclists, etc. We also ask that walkers, dogs, bikers and snowshoers walk to the right on these trails and avoid the track so that all types of users may enjoy shared use of the trail. This trail will have pink signs marking the trail as "multi-modal" where anything goes.
The original EagleVail “multi-modal” trail, established many years ago, will still be maintained by EagleVail. It starts at the Golf Course Driving Range and Practice Facility (parking available) and extends west on many of our golf fairways. All but classic skiers are encouraged to avoid the set track on that path, too. Have a wonderful winter on our new and improved tracks, trails and pathways!!

BOG Develops Long Range Financial Strategy; Replacement Reserve Funds
The EagleVail Board of Governors, consisting of the combined EV Metro District and EV Property Owner’s Association Boards, recently directed EV’s staff to develop replacement reserve and long range financial strategies to guide the board’s decisions.
Initially, a reserve study was conducted to identify future major expenditures—those capital expenditures that occur every two or more years. Other, more routine items are handled in the annual maintenance budget. EagleVail’s staff, in concert with our financial consultants, Robertson and Marchetti, PC, CPAs, conducted the study based on work done previously by contractors.
For many years, as a budget saving measure, EagleVail deferred maintenance on many of its amenities and facilities. During the past few years, with so many new facilities having been constructed, the board felt it important now to lay the groundwork to care for these amenities in order to extend their service lives. Building elements such as roofs, asphalt, mechanical equipment, pools, concrete work, electrical systems, etc. need to be properly maintained and replaced, when necessary. Money is set aside annually to be used for large-scale maintenance and replacement projects.
The study revealed the need to establish a replacement reserve fund for irrigation systems for the soccer and baseball fields, infield drainage system for the baseball field, tennis facilities, building elements at the Willow Creek Par 3 clubhouse, equipment replacement (and upgrades) to EagleVail’s parks, replacement of the golf course maintenance facility, replacement of the golf course clubhouse (proposed to be a community center which would include golf operations and pro shop), irrigation system for the 18 hole golf course, pool systems and elements, among other things. The entire list will be available on www.eaglevail.org after Board of Governors review.
The study further revealed that it is necessary to establish “catch up” provisions across all funds.
The Board chose to begin to tackle these issues by designating fund balances to specific reserve accounts and increasing POA assessments by $25, $20 of which is earmarked for reserve. Much “deferred funding” is still needed in order to address the deferred maintenance from the past and the board continues to struggle with this issue.
The entire process is still very much a work in progress. It has identified a number of funding issues which have no easy solutions. EV’s staff continues to work with the Board to develop additional revenue streams.
Most property owners and residents in EV feel fortunate to have such a broad array of recreational amenities. Our financial advisors, however, point out that it is expensive to maintain and replace them. Over the next couple of years, EagleVail must make some choices—increase revenue in the way of higher fees, assessments and property taxes, or reduce the quality and/or number of amenities. It is likely that the ultimate solution will be a combination.
Look for the 2014 version of the Community Survey, coming soon. The results will assist the board in making decisions for the future of EagleVail. Community involvement and input will be key in determining what amenities are most valued.
