A Season After Injury

At the start of every ski season, we at Ski Butlers Steamboat get together for a ski day before our season really kicks off.  Luckily, about an hour and a half drive we can be at Loveland Ski Area, which opens to skiers and snowboarders about a month before Steamboat Resort opens.  Well, that day was yesterday and we got lucky enough to have a fresh foot of snow under our feet, but before hitting the snow I was a little nervous of how well I would do my first day back for the 2015/16 season.


Steamboat, A Community Before a Ski Town

My wife and I, the owners of Ski Butlers Steamboat, have had the awesome opportunity to live in different ski towns.  We met in Park City then moved to Breckenridge for a winter, then finally settled in Steamboat Springs.  We get the question a lot, “What makes Steamboat different to other ski towns?”


The Importance of Giving Back to Our Communities

Ski Butlers Core Value # 7: Make a Difference in Your Community


Here at Ski Butlers community involvement is very important, in fact we require all Team Members to give back to the community at least 2 hours a month.  Stephany, my wife and GM of Ski Butlers Steamboat, and myself have taken this Core Value and made it a part of our lifestyle.


Night Skiing Comes Out West

Have you ever been night skiing? If you grew up in the Northeast of the US you most likely have.  The trend of resorts ether implementing or upgrading night skiing is becoming more and more prevalent even in the West.  Why is this? Lighting technology.  The lights have become inexpensive to run, not as obtrusive to homes in the area, and really gives great visability when skiing under them.
