Keystone Resort executive pastry chef Ned Archibald works at assembling 'Chocolateville' his masterpiece chocolate village at the Keystone Lodge Thursday morning. This is the 17th holiday season Archibald has put the village together, which he estimates is somewhere in the neighborhood of 6,500 pounds of white and dark chocolate. Always adding features each year and never subtracting, the staff of five spends several weeks preparing the village by reshining and refurbishing before presenting it for viewing.

Chef Ned Archibald never really celebrated Christmas. Not like the most of us anyway.
Keystone Resort's executive pastry chef grew up in the baking business. With most of the demand for pastries being around the holiday season, Archibald always found himself at work on Christmas Day, but he doesn't care - in fact, he prefers it that way.
So every year, the esteemed pastry chef brings the Chocolate Village to Keystone Resort's Lodge and Spa, where it's proudly situated in the lobby. Guests enter the building and instantly smell what some on-lookers describe as "divine."
"I realized I'm just cut out to work on holidays. I like it, I've always thought that I'm contributing to other people's happiness and that one day that makes me feel very satisfied and fulfilled," Archibald said. "But I didn't really realize it until I took a Thanksgiving off - I only took it off because the Patriots were playing."
Anyone acquainted with the master pastry chef knows that Archibald is a huge Patriots fan, he even created an 8-pound, solid chocolate football proudly displaying his team's logo as one of the hand-made gifts in the display.
After catching a bit of flack, he added a similar Bronco football to the village. Other than that, the village is largely a classic, Norman Rockwell-inspired scene. A chocolate waterfall pours out of the chocolate mountain surrounded by chocolate trains. The tree, the presents (both wrapped and unwrapped) - every meticulous detail - are made of solid chocolate weighing in at approximately 6,500 pounds, according to Archibald.
...
"I told my father-in-law what I was planning to do and he asked how the heck I was going to create a chocolate rocking-horse," said Archibald, who at the time had no idea how he would pull it off. "He went into his workshop and came out with this really old, tattered manilla folder - inside was the template to a rocking horse he had made for my wife."
So, sitting among the pile of gifts is an exact replica of the rocking horse that Archibald's wife had when she was only 5 years old.
"She thought it was the coolest thing ever," he said.
Also on the set of Keystone's Chocolate Village, is a very presidential Teddy bear.
President Bill Clifton stayed at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, Calif., while Archibald was a chef during the early 1990s.
...
Months leading up to the esteemed guest's arrival, Archibald met with the U.S. Secret Service to plan a menu for the president.
"I asked if we were going to do some kind of welcome amenity for the president," Archibald said. "I wanted to make something out of chocolate but the advisor said the president was on a very strict diet and no sweets were to be permitted in his room."
Archibald was dismayed.
...
"I go back to my public relations people and tell them to ask the president's advisor about the idea - he loved it," Archibald said.
The 12-pound chocolate teddy bear, dubbed "Cocoa," was a hit - until the Secret Service tried to x-ray it. Archibald said it felt like a scene out of a movie.
"A little bit later, two guys dressed like the Men in Black, talking into their sleeves flash their credentials and demand to know what was inside the bear," Archibald remembers.
The Secret Service explained they tried to x-ray the gift and had dogs sniffing it but had no indication of what was inside of what was apparently "un-x-rayable," said Archibald.
To appease the men, Archibald drilled a hole in the back of the solid-chocolate teddy-bear.
"They saw the chocolate come out and seemed satisfied so I patched up the hole and packaged it for the president's daughter and it was hand-delivered to her on Air Force 1," Archibald said.
...
"It was new and different," Archibald said. "It was nuts, I was really digging it and getting all this praise and yet, little did I know, management didn't like all the hustle."
The following Christmas, the resort opted for a more conservative attraction - a classic, fresh Christmas tree. Archibald said the replacement did not go over well.
"They got so many complaints they came back to me and said 'you have got to bring this thing back' and I was happy to," Archibald said.
