Fairways and Greens

realvail local since: August 1, 1976

Proud to be a fifth generation native Coloradan, Reid Griebling has lived in Vail since he was two years old. An avid skier, golfer and weather watcher, Reid spends much of his time scanning the skies and surfing the web to see what Mother Nature has in store for the Valley.

For over 11 years, Reid spent his summers working at local Valley golf courses. During his time as a teaching golf professional, Reid was instrumental in organizing several of the Valley’s successful junior golf programs. When the summers ended and the snow started to fall, Reid hung up his golf clubs, and happily put on his ski boots for his winter job on Vail Mountain as part of the Vending Department (a.k.a. “Team Vendo”). Reid’s every working day in the winter was spent helping to maintain the various vending equipment, lockers, token machines, etc., all over Vail Mountain. With the mountains as his “office” Reid couldn’t help but learn many of its secrets.

Reid relinquished his mountain office in 2006 to work alongside his mother Nancy and brother Dave in the family’s business, The Linen Kist. In December of the same year, Reid married his long time love, Regina, on top of Vail Mountain (on skis, of course!). Reid and Regina live in Singletree with their two cats, Rocco and August West. They are happily awaiting the birth of their first child (and sixth generation Coloradan) in May 2008.
