It’s been awhile since we’ve featured a ski destination in Celebrated Weekend, so I’m as excited about this issue’s cover spot as I am about the celebrity. With perfect timing for the ski season, country singer Lyle Lovett offers his insider’s tour of several Colorado resort areas in Celbrated Weekend
. In it, he tells you where he likes to hit the slopes and hit the town in Steamboat Springs, Aspen, Vail, and Beaver Creek. (He also tells you what makes him nervous … .)
I must admit, I’m a big fan of Lovett’s, and think his music, which ranges from rowdy and festive to intelligent and introspective, suits many moods. (He’s a fellow Aggie and Texan, so I may be just a bit biased.) He’s currently touring to promote his new album, so if you have a chance to catch a show, don’t miss it.
There’s more good stuff in this issue: Elsewhere in our Travel section, we head to Chile for an action-packed vacation in Pucón, 400 miles south of Santiago. The story’s sold me; I’m ready to check out the area’s volcanoes, national parks, hot springs, waterfalls, and skiing — all within 22 miles of town. We also take a tour of London
, albeit a slower-paced walking one, exploring the city by way of its 200-plus trails.
In our Lifestyle section, you’ll find out if — and why — you may need a personal clothing consultant
. And in Business, we talk to Accenture CEO Joe Forehand
about his thoughts on management and leadership.
