A Thanksgiving Tale

To our Friends and Family,

The staff at Snow Sport would like to wish you a safe and happy holiday.  May your journey forever exceed your expectations and your dreams always be realized.

Please enjoy the following 'Thanksgiving Story' forwarded to us by one of our friends from Vail earlier today.

With Best Wishes,

The Staff at Snow Sport

A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary.

Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity. John tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything else he could think of to 'clean up' the bird's vocabulary.

Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back. John shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even more rude. John, in desperation, threw up his hands, grabbed the parrot and put him in the freezer. For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed. Then suddenly there was total quiet. Not a peep was heard for over a minute.

Fearing that he'd hurt the parrot, John quickly opened the door to the freezer. The parrot calmly stepped out onto John's outstretched arms and said "I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I'm sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior."

John was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude. As he was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, the bird spoke-up, very softly, "May I ask what the turkey did?"

Why Buy it From Us and Not Them

We are all out there trying to attract you.. We want to get your attention and then sell you stuff that you can get anywhere.  But, we think you must get it from us or it's just not as good.
Sound familiar??  Does this happen in your profession as well?  It's just the way things are, right?

So..... here's our story.  Of course, we think our reasons are quite sound, and we hope you'll ultimately agree.  We absolutely can do it cheaper, save you time, and therefore provide the best value snow vacation possible.

Here's how we can help you most...

1.  Special deals.  We get regular communication notices of virtually ALL snow destination promotions.

2.  More connections.  The snow industry is a small one.  The professionals from the destination resorts work well together and we are in the best seat to negotiate, locate that 'extra' room, waive a minimum stay policy, find you that extra discount... or whatever.

3. Extra favors.  "Do you want to haggle with me or your computer", as one of our team members so clearly states? Talk to a live person invested in your vacation, and you will get results.

4. Save money. More often than not, your snow vacation costs less if we do it than if you had put it together on your own.  This results from our expertise and ability to evaluate product need and best value.

5. Save time.  Do you want to sort through ALL of that information on the web, or have one of us show you only the pertinent material?

So next time, give us a shout.  We'll get it right for you!

The snow is in and more to come!

See you soon!
