Around the world, across all of our resorts, we have employees who are experiencing their own epic journeys. Employees who are the heroes of their own stories, who constantly challenge themselves to give more, to do more, to be more. We developed this podcast so that we can share their journeys – and the journeys of our guests, our mountains, and our communities – all of which are truly epic by nature.
A Conversation on Inclusion: Henri Rivers, the National Brotherhood of Skiers
For the first time, we have invited someone who is not an employee of our company to join us in a conversation. Henri Rivers, is the President of the National Brotherhood of skiers and a frequent guest at our resorts. This mini-episode features Henri and President of the Mountain Division, Pat Campbell, discussing the history and mission of the National Brotherhood of Skiers and the partnership required between our two organizations.
We Are Part Of The Problem
This episode of Epic By Nature explores the journey of several members of our company who are Black, Indigenous or other People of Color. Their stories are all unique, their journeys very much their own... What was their path to our company? What were some of the challenges and barriers they faced? How have they overcome them and what do they think needs to change as we continue on our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion journey?

Ski & Ride for Life
Right now across our Company, our ski and snowboard instructors – our pros – are opening up our sport and mountains to guests across North America. From child to adult, from beginner to highly-skilled, our pros spend more time with guests than most of us and are therefore uniquely positioned to deliver an Experience of a Lifetime.
Ski instructors have had a profound impact on growing my confidence and expanding my ability in the sport and I am excited to share their stories today. How did they find their way to teaching? What tactics and techniques do they use? What credentials do they need? How do they manage the logistics and the business of ski school?
I am SO glad this podcast is back. It is insightful, informative and interesting. How lucky are we to hear how the company tackles different challenges and truly values both its employees and customers.
As an employee integrated into Vail, let it be known that I am very excited!
As a skier for 50 plus years I knew it took a lot to run a ski area. This pod really explains the complicated undertaking it is. I recommend to to every skier and ski area employee.
