Over the past decade I have had the fortunate experience to spend time in various ski towns around the Mountain West US. At first they all seem the same; they all have a ski resort with a great town that assists in the overall experience. Great skiing followed by great food and drinks, the perfect ski day on an awesome ski vacation. Most would assume that the people who live in these towns must have it so good and life is like a vacation, but it’s not always so easy.
Each month, Ski Butlers general managers and owners from the five Colorado shops come together as team, not only to bond, but to ski and experience the sport that we all love. We call this the Team Colorado Meetings. This is the story of Team Colorado coming together over skiing in Aspen, Colorado.
Core Value #7 - Make a Difference in the Community
Ski Butlers understands the importance of community involvement. That is why it is mentioned in our Mission Statement, and Core Values. It is a requirement to make a difference in the community while working at Ski Butlers.
I am here to acknowledge that times are changing. I was pleasantly surprised recently when checking out at the local grocery store. The thing that amazed me was not the cashier attendant with great customer service, but instead the fact that almost everyone around me had recyclable tote bags for their groceries.
At Ski Butlers, every customer receives a a complimentary grocery tote bag each time we deliver to them. We feel that by doing just this, we give back to the environment, the local community, and the recycling effort at large. In addition to providing a cool piece of Ski Butlers memorabilia for the customer, they are also ultra durable totes! I think the Ski Butlers tote bags are great for many reasons, but I'll give you just two:
- Versatility.. They are great for camping, carrying ski gear, traveling, organizing, storage, transporting and even delivery Christmas gifts!
- Recyclable...If we all do a little, we can make a BIG difference. Tote bags are a great way to start thinking this way.
On any given day it's seems the little things are what mean the most.Today, I thought just that about our tote bags and decided to share it with you. Hopefully you enjoyed and if you would like to check out some of my recent tote bag experiences, just view the photos attached:
