As the first snows of the winter arrive, this is the second year that we have been able to contribute back to the community here in South Lake Tahoe. This year the Echo team leaders from both Kirkwood & Heavenly chose to contribute @Bijou community park located in the heart of South Lake Tahoe. Bijou is host to an amazing amount of parkland that includes our community skatepark, kids play ground, dog park, fitness trials and a historical walking trail system.
It was a chilly start to the day, but that did not deter the Vail Resorts Echo teams from both Kirkwood & Heavenly. We had an amazing turn out of just around 270 participants from both resorts. Not just employees giving their time back to the community, but their families and friends as well. Mothers, Fathers, Kids, even Momma Jean Reuter was onsite today to contribute.
To kick the day off, we started with a little coffee and nutritional sustenance, sign in, an inspirational welcome from both Pete Sontag & Casey Blann our GM’s from Heavenly & Kirkwood, split off with our teams, and away we went! Sod teams, Shrub teams, Dog park teams, Skate Park team, Bike Trail team & Trash teams at the ready, all with one goal in mind, Serve others, Do Good, Be Safe, Do Right, Have Fun!
On the North Shore our sister @SkiNorthstar were serving the community as well as our bothers & sisters in both Utah and Colorado!
