"Growing up in Denver Colorado, Jay Spickelmier joined the restaurant industry at age fourteen. His culinary career quickly took shape in Boulder, Colorado's restaurant seen, which included
the iconic Flagstaff House.
Finding his passion and the entrepreneur spirit, Chef Spickelmier was at the helm in the kitchen early in his career. In 2001, he began working the gamut of restaurants in The Vail Valley
including, the former The Vail Cascade Resort, The Left Bank, Sonnenalp Hotel and The Ritz Carlton. After leaving The Vail Valley to bring several restaurant concepts to life in Denver, he
returned home in 2011 and joined the Cascade Resort now Hotel Talisa. Jay became The Executive Jay for Hotel Talisa in 2018.
"My passion for cooking is found in the adventurous Rocky Mountain lifestyle and all that Vail and the surrounding area has to offer. I consider myself an outdoor enthusiast and enjoy everything under the sun. I am a family man and look forward to raising my children in our amazing mountain setting, while growing with a wonderful team of people at Hotel Talisa for the foreseeable future."
