The Traveling Vineyard – A Time To Celebrate

The Traveling Vineyard is a home based business where individuals can become wine guides and sell wine at neighborhood parties. You can build a team of other interested people who would like to earn some extra money too, and you will get a small spiff off of their sales.

The way that the system works is that you find an individual or couple who are interested in hosting a wine tasting party in their home and you are the wine guide as you present different wines for everyone’s eager taste buds, and those that wish can buy various wines from you.

You set your schedule, and you can work as much or as little as your wish, and for people who want to earn a little extra money, it can be a nice extra thing to do. You will have to learn some things about wine, pass these new discoveries along to the people who attend and enjoy yourself.

Just about everyone wants to learn more about wine, where it comes from, and the taste of the wine. It is interesting how different wines appeal to different people. People are also interested in wine pairings, or what wine goes with which food. The Traveling Vineyard has a Sommology key on the back of each bottle which will help you pair the wine with the proper food.

The Traveling Vineyard is headquartered in Ipswich, MA and is a member of the Direct Selling Association. It is a real company and is doing very well.

Squaw Valley Ski with Andrew Wirth as CEO

 

The Squaw Valley Ski Resort is in the Olympic Valley, Lake Tahoe area in California. It was the host site of the entire 1960 Winter Olympics. Since then, it has maintained its vibrant ski culture and mountain energy. With consistent snowfall that sticks around well into the spring, Squaw Valley is one of the longest ski and snowboard seasons in the country. Squaw Valley was once a mining boom town and was the biggest mining operation in the Lake Tahoe region.

With Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows joining forces, bringing the two ski resorts under common ownership, skiers and riders can access about 6,200 acres. It now has 270 trails, 43 lifts and a total skiing area of 4,000 acres. It attracts up to about 600,000 snow divers annually. 

If you are planning a trip to this ski resort, you can stay off the mountain; families can relax in the heart of the Lake Tahoe action in the Village at Squaw Valley Lodging. There’s plenty of high altitude adventures, walk and explore the village at Squaw Valley to discover the endless shopping & dining options.

Andrew Wirth is the CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings. He has been in the resort business for a little over 24 years. Wirth was responsible for overseeing a $70 million upgrade to the resort, which enormously helped to par with competing skiing areas. Wirth was also able to make a major change to merge with Alpine Meadows Ski Resort, Wirth also became the CEO of that resort as well, and it provided the convenience of purchasing one single ticket for admittance to both. His long-term goal is to continually build and improve the reputation of Squaw Valley to make it more popular than ever. He is a major contributor to environmental and community service organizations in the Lake Tahoe area.

Recently it was announced in the Los Angeles Times that they would introduce a gondola that would run about two miles between the bases of the two resorts, allowing skiers to zip between them without using ground transportation. Wirth said the gondola will be built on private property near the wilderness area, far enough away that hikers in the wilderness won’t even be able to see the gondola, although Squaw Valley Ski Holdings has yet to submit a construction plan. 

Wirth received the Chairman’s Outstanding Service Award and last year he was recognized by Disabled Sports USA as the Citizen of the Year.
