As many of you are aware, April 1, which this year also happens to be Easter, has been associated with an unfortunate history of events occurring at some of our Colorado resorts. While initially this may have been a day to have fun in the spirit of April Fools’ Day, some of these activities have caused significant negative impacts to our guests, employees and the reputation of our resorts. We have seen progress in regards to behavior on this day and we are once again asking for your support in protecting the guest experience and ensuring this unfortunate tradition does not continue.
Since launching in December 2015, the EpicPromise Foundation has provided over 450 grants to Vail Resorts employees, totaling over US$1M in support. It has helped ensure that Vail Resorts employees and their families can pursue their dreams to continue their education through grants for graduate degrees, college degrees and other vocational training.
