When it comes to fresh powder the best go west, young man. But they don’t go it alone. Savvy skiers and smart shredders enlist the help of a ski butler to service their gear.
Think about it, knowing what to bring on a cold weather vacation can be tough. You have to be prepared for all kinds of extreme conditions on the slopes. Will it be face-freezing cold or sunny and warm at the summit? Your luggage automatically doubles in size just from stowing your down jacket, heavier sweaters, and technical base layers. And that’s before adding your boots, hats, and gloves. Once you’ve wrestled that extra pair of long johns into your overstuffed suitcase, you still have to tune up your actual gear. Hauling around your skis, poles, boards, and wax can be the worst part of the trip.
That’s where Ski Butlers, an award-winning ski and snowboard rental delivery service steps in to lighten the load and maximize your time on the mountain. We caught up with Steve Giangiulio from Ski Butlers for a lesson.
What exactly does a ski butler do? And how can working with one give your Rocky Mountain ski trip a lift?
