Tahoe Summer at its Finest
Although heaps of snow are still visible in the Tahoe high country, summer is in full swing in North Lake Tahoe. After skiing on the 4th of July at Squaw Valley, our team members are excited to finally put their skis away for a bit and enjoy all the exciting events that are happening. Winter is of course our favorite time of year, but do yourself a favor and enjoy all that North Lake Tahoe has to offer this summer.
The best way to experience Tahoe is to get on the Lake. Rent a boat at Tahoe City Marina or go parasailing. Stand-Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is emerging as a popular sport for all ages. Check out Tahoe Nalu Paddle Festival in Kings Beach on Aug. 13th and 14th. There are also a wealth of great beaches and snorkeling spots throughout the area. Don't forget about classic tubing down the Truckee river as well.
The Lake Tahoe Music Festival kicks off July 21 with the Blues Traveler at Northstar @ Tahoe. While you are there, check out the bike park for Tahoe's best lift-accessed downhill terrain. The following weekend (July 28-31), Squaw Valley will once again host the Wanderlust Festival. Come enjoy yoga, incredible music and all that Squaw Valley has to offer.
Lake Tahoe no doubt has an abundancy of recreational opportunities as well as great entertainment each summer. If you haven't yet been to Tahoe. Get here. It's absolutely amazing! And don't hesitate to call us if we can be of any help. Have a great summer!
Ski Butlers Core Values
When Tony Hsieh, CEO from Zappos said this about his core values, “I only wish we had done it sooner,” I realized it was time to put our energy into creating our own.
Core Values are the essential and enduring guiding principles of our organization that impact how everyone thinks and acts. They are a rallying point. By living by these core values, and sticking to them, we have given ourselves an opportunity to distance ourselves from the competition and to better serve you, our customers.
• We formally defined the Ski Butlers culture in 10 core values:
• Deliver Legendary Service

We would love to hear from you. Does your organization have core values? Share them on our Facebook page or email us.
And yes, we are still skiing and riding at many of the resorts we serve. Some resorts believe they will be open weekends only through the 4th of July!
