Goggle Tans, Goggle Tans, and Goggle Tans!

It’s been an action packed season here at Telluride but Spring is coming in fast.  Since we last spoke Telluride has gotten its fare share of powder days where skiers and riders were able to enjoy all 4,425 vertical feet the resort has to offer.  The Ski Butlers Team has also been actively donating its time around the community.  We’ve had members volunteer at places from the Ah Haa School for Arts to helping out at the Annual Adaptive Center’s Scavenger Hunt that took place on St. Patrick’s Day.

Closing Weekend at Vail

Vail certainly knows how to end the season on a high note.   They are throwing quite the party - bidding farewell to the 2011/2012 ski season.

The final two weekends have been highly anticipated and will certainly soften the blow from a mediocre winter. Although the snowfall wasn’t anything special this year, Vail still has a lot to offer.  Taste of Vail and Spring Back to Vail are the two signature Spring events.  

 Taste of Vail – April 5-7, 2012

In its 22nd year, the Taste of Vail is one of the nation's premier spring food and wine festivals. During the annual three-day event, upwards of 5,000 people will enjoy all that Vail has to offer. Participants at the Taste of Vail will experience Vail Valley's world-class restaurants, fine wines from top wineries around the globe - poured by winemakers and winery owners, along with interactive seminars, auction and dance, the Colorado Lamb Cook Off, apres ski tasting and the popular mountain top picnic sensory extravaganza at the top of Vail Mountain.

 Spring Back to Vail – April 9-15, 2012

Closing Weekend at Vail takes a different approach.  Rather than fine wines and eloquent dining, Spring Back to Vail is more of a party. It is the epitome of Spring Skiing at its finest. Board shorts, bikinis and the World Pond Skimming Championships are just some of the fun that goes on.  This year Vail has outdone itself by offering 4 consecutive days of unbelievable music – and it’s all free!

Make a Difference in the Community: Core Value #7

It’s one of those ideas that most companies initially use to help propel their name out into their local communities and to network while starting up.  The basic idea usually starts out with merely trying to get your companies name out there.  And there are companies that start here and end here.  But the successful ones are the ones who dabble at first in an idea of networking and “I’ll scratch your back if you scratch mine”, but end up addicted to the chain of support and love that is created from local involvement.  Like Ski Butlers has.
