So, this is the last weekend of operations at Stowe. It’s sort of sad to see the place closing down, but if you look at the mountain it’s definitely time to stop thinking about skiing and start thinking about all the things you do when it’s gone. However, the end of the season means the end of season employee party is just around the corner. This coming Wednesday, all of the employees at Stowe are invited to the mountain for food, drink and some fun… the fun being a cardboard sled race on the slalom hill.
Apparently, this is a big deal here at Stowe with some of the departments starting their planning and construction months ago. Since most of the people in our department were new, we just found out about the rules and decided to throw our hat into the ring. So, yesterday we idea day and today was construction day. We still need to paint and decorate, but hopefully that will happen this weekend. I don’t want to share too much today. But I’ll definitely post more after the party on Wednesday.
