Is it Ski Season yet?!?!? Breckenridge Awaits

Hallo Bergbevölkerung!  As we put the weekend of Oktoberfest celebrations behind us in Breckenridge, we look to see what is next for ski towns in the Western US and Canada? After talking to people over the weekend while volunteering for Oktoberfest, the answer seems to constantly be the same when you talk to anyone in the Breckenridge community. Is it ski season yet?!?!? We received our first dustings last week on some tall peaks here in Summit County, Colorado.  The mountain temperatures have quickly dipped to the freezing point at night and remained relatively cool and crisp throughout the days while always providing us with some type of sunshine. Not quite blue bird days with several feet of fresh powder YET, but we are on our way!

At all of our Ski Butler locations, we are very excited to be welcoming in our new line of equipment for the 2011/2012 season! The gear has already arrived or is arriving this week in most locations, also serving as a reminder that ski season is right around the corner. Following Ski Butlers offseason partnership with the Rossignol Group, all Ski Butler locations are especially happy to be receiving our new equipment provided exclusively by Rossignol.

The Ski Butlers Team had a very productive annual franchise meeting this past week in Whistler, British Columbia. All Team Members had a chance to collaborate on the very busy offseason we have had and to look forward to the ski season ahead! During the 5 day stay in Whistler, Ski Butler Team Members demonstrated how we actively use our core values in every decision and interaction we encounter. It was a truly amazing time that served as a culture bonding experience for the best ski rental delivery team out there! Not only can we not wait to see you on the slopes, but we’re equally anxious to share our legendary customer service with you!

Return of La Nina in Jackson Hole


Winter is approaching in Telluride, we are anxious to rent skis!

The resorts are putting out their teaser videos, the Ski Movie Magnates are putting out there new films, the High Rockies are beginning to get snow, all signs are pointing to winter!  And Ski Butlers is ready!  It's hard not to begin dreaming of fresh tracks and bluebird days while all of this is going on and our new equipment is starting to arrive at the shop.  It's like Christmas in September, and it's awesome!  A lot has gone on this summer at Ski Butlers, we have worked tirelessly on perfecting our customer interactions - our focus: "WOWing" the customer.  Our main goal is ensuring that the experience of our guests is something they will actually talk about when they get home.  

Telluride is anticipating a great year, you can't beat the scenery there for one, but the snow is supposed to be in Telluride this year - that mountain is amazing with a ton of snow.  If you've never been, Telluride is probably one of the last few Colorado resorts that still looks like it did in the days of Butch Cassidy.  You just expect leather clad cowboys to come roaring down Main Street, six shooters blasting at any moment.  It's an incredible place for vacation.
The Ski Butlers team is currently in different Airports across the west headed to our Whistler location for our annual Franchise meetings.  We've got owners and GM's headed up there to come together, chat Ski Butlers and get to know one another to further build the culture that helps bring Legendary Customer Service to our guests.  We can't wait for the season - we'll see you out on the slopes!
