“An Experience of a Lifetime”

3 Mar

Vail Resorts has one thing right. Whether it be births, deaths, relationships, or travels, your time on this planet is made up of experiences of a lifetime

With the end of the ski season coming up in a few weeks and Holly gracing us with her presence this past weekend, I’ve been doing some thinking about my time out here in Keystone.

The last year has been a year of life-changing decisions, learning experiences, and adventures.   But hands-down, the best decision I’ve made was the decision to drop everything and head west. The people I’ve met, the physical and emotional challenges, trying my hand at the hospitality industry, learning to drive in the midst of a blizzard, and the dramatic beauty of the surrounding mountains, have all had a hand at providing this city gal with her own personal EOL.

As my first “official” visitor, I was so excited to drag Holly up, down, and all around Summit County, in an effort to provide her with an “experience of a lifetime”. Granted a lot of what we did, saw, and the people we met were generally part of my EOL, but showing her around and showing her off made me realize that an EOL is more than beautiful scenery, good food, and great memories. An EOL combines all of the above to create something that changes your perspective on life, something makes you realize that importance of happiness, of love, and of living life to the fullest. Yes, bumps in the road are bound to come up, but how you handle those bumps and bounce back is all part of achieving that EOL. 

What’s your “experience of a lifetime”?
