When I graduated, I packed up the car and headed west to the little place called Aspen. Does this sound like a line from the movie “Dumb and Dumber”? Perhaps. Aspen was a destination; an adventure that was only supposed to be for a few short months. However, my life journey had different plans for me, and I fell hard and fast for the mountains. Flash forward 10 years later; I had finally bought skis, endured a broken shoulder, slid down many mountainsides on my backside, landed into a few tree wells, attempted and failed a few jumps and I even threw in a few ski lessons. On top of all that, I was lucky enough to find my husband and life partner.
Now our family lives in another ski town called Park City, Utah. Skiing is our regular weekend activity for our entire family. Little did I know that my ski journey would extend beyond my family fun and tie in with my career.
My position with RLL takes me to nationwide conferences which typically include a traditional 10 x 10-foot trade show booth with a lot of small talk, gallons of average coffee and throbbing feet. When I found a few ski events catering to the habitational/real estate industry, IRHS being one of them (a shout out to all the regulars or should I say “groupies”), I was eager to attend. Then RLL hosted their first annual 2020 ski conference and I was truly in my element. I was able to create lifetime experiences with some of our clients, prospects, and key industry figures. I was able to share amazing mountain views on a crisp winter morning, glide down the perfectly groomed corduroy ski runs, delight in the tasting of fine wine and whiskey, a moonlit snowcat ride ending with a feast of mouthwatering cuisine in a cozy yurt. My journey with skiing paid off and was literally fun.
