In the spirit of New Years Eve, we decided to come up with a few company-wide resolutions for 2013.
1. Get out and explore our backyard more!
Park City is a 4-season playground, something that we often take for granted because we’re lucky enough to wake up in this beautiful town every day. So, in 2013 we vow to get outside more. We will explore the hundreds of miles of hiking and mountain biking trails in the spring, summer and fall. We will ski and/or snowboard at all three of our world-class resorts—Canyons, Park City Mountain Resort, and Deer Valley—as much as we possibly can. We will go snowshoeing, rock climbing, golfing, fishing and do everything in between.
2. Be more involved in our local community.
There are over 100 nonprofits in Park City. In 2013 we will get together as an organization and volunteer our time to at least one or two of these non-profits.
3. Break ground on our new building.
We’re in the process of building a new office for Park City Lodging, Inc. It will house all of our departments and will include a living roof and co-op garden. Our laundry facility is currently off-site, but will be housed in the new building with the rest of our operations. As part of our company-wide sustainability effort, laundry at the new facility will use recycled water.
4. Keep it green!
Park City Lodging, Inc. is committed to sustainability: We donate 1% for open space in Park City, we use environmentally friendly cleaning products and toiletries in all of our rental units, and we are passionate about recycling. In 2013 we would like to implement comprehensive recycling programs at all of our properties and promote sustainability company-wide.
5. Continue to be on the cutting edge of technology and communication.
In 2013 we will continue to find innovative ways to communicate effectively with our owners and guests in order to provide them with the best experience possible. In 2012 we invested in a mobile concierge application for our guests that not only provides GPS directions to and from our properties, shows restaurant recommendations, ski rental shop information, and property-specific instructions; but also allows us to communicate directly with our guests through push notifications. In 2013 we plan to utilize the mobile application to communicate with our guests even more.
