Packy, a locals favorite for shenanigans and good hearted entertainment, retired in April of 2015. Vail Resort Rentals, owned by another long time Vail local, Dale Bugby, was awarded the management of the Lodge by the ownership group. The Lift House is expected to continue to cater to the price conscious traveler with it’s charm and convenience.
