Back to Work

Sorry for the distance between posts...I was obviously not at work. I hope everyone had a great Memorial Weekend. If you are as exhausted as I am right now, then you had a fun weekend.

Last week I attended a meeting in Salida that was put on by Colorado Ski Country. About 25 people from almost every ski resort in the state attended the meeting. It's always a fun time when all of us get together. You would think that, being in competition for Colorado skiers, we wouldn't necessarily hang out with each other but that's not the case. The great thing about the ski industry is the friendships and the fact that people tend to encourage and help each other out regardless of the resort. These meetings typically include a few hours of nose-to-the-grindstone stuff and then twice as much time goofing off. For example, this week we had a cocktail hour (ok actually about 3 hours) at the Monarch offices in Salida. Then we met for 3 hours the following morning and then went rafting the rest of the day on the Arkansas River. This was all followed up by an amazing dinner at Laughing Ladies in downtown Salida. As you can see it's about 10% work and 90% fun. I recommend working in the ski industry.

I'll have information for you this week regarding summer projects here at Powderhorn. I just need to find out what's going on first!
