For those who don’t know, we offer four Go Play Days (paid workdays) a year for all employees to get outside and learn more about our products through personal experience. Of course, it doesn’t take much pushing to get ACK-ers outside. 

Here’s a photo blog by ACK Customer Relationship Manager Morgan Jennings documenting his experience snowboarding at the Steamboat Springs Resort in Colorado and snowmobiling in the Routt National Forest on the Continental Divide on a family trip.

Day 1: Waiting to get on the shuttle


Had to get a picture with the Rocky Mountains before the first run. I hadn’t been snowboarding in 5+ years, so I had to hit the bunny slopes a few times to get my legs used to the feeling again.


Family picture after taking the Gondola to the top, about to take our first real runs down. I was the only one on a snowboard, everyone else in my family skis.


The weather the first two days was clear and sunny and the runs were well groomed.


Family Photo on the ski lift. (Day 3 was just my brother and I. We had a few storms with light snow and high winds, but still made for a good day on the mountain.)


Strapping up to take on a few black diamond runs.


Feeling like I conquered the mountain after a few beers at high altitude.


On the last day, we went on a 4-hour snowmobiling tour through Routt National Forest.


We didn’t get to see much of the park scenery or any wildlife since this day has some pretty heavy snow, but our instructor let us stop in some clearings to take a few pictures.
