The man pictured above arguably is having the best summer ever.
Meet Benjamin Solomon, or as he’s know around Vail, #VailBen.
The New Jersey native and current Brooklynite is spending his summer hopping between Vail’s hotels as he explores every nook and cranny of Vail in summer:
Hiking, mountain biking, eating, Bravo! Vail concerts, ziplining, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, Vail International Dance Festival, GoPro Mountain Games, spa treatments, crazy gym sessions, eating, flying, ATV-ing, fly fishing, Vail Jazz Fest, road biking, flying in ridiculously small planes, Vail Farmer’s Markets, and eating some more.
Oh yeah, and he’s getting paid to do it.
As the winner of America’s Best Summer Job, Ben’s living the high life and recording the whole experience so you, too, can have the best summer ever here at Vail.
