Busch Stadium, Metlife Stadium, TD Garden...corporate sponsorships are all the rage these days. You can't visit too many major arenas or stadiums that aren't sponsored by a major corporation. I've even heard that supermarkets are starting to sponsor school lunch rooms. Talk about a trickle down effect.
All of these sponsorships makes you wonder what is next. Who knows, maybe we can get a brewery sponsor at the office? Beers at work, that's kind of my dream. In this case, dreams can come true, kinda. In the case of Waterville Valley Resort, they've teamed up with Harpoon Brewery to turn former offices into an all inclusive slopeside suite called the Harpoon Sky Box.
Waterville Valley Makes Smart Use of Former Office Space
One thing that we've seen all winter long is that the pandemic has forced people to become more inventive in all of their endeavors. The Harpoon Sky Box at Waterville Valley is just another example of this. They have taken former office suites that probably weren't being used for much and turned them into a creative, useful and fun space. In doing so, Waterville Valley has created the ultimate slopeside suite experience. Brilliant!
The Harpoon Sky Box Epitomizes Après-Ski
The Harpoon Sky Box is après-ski at its finest. Envision being in a corporate box at a sporting event only slope side. The Sky Box comes fully equipped with plenty of comfortable seating, 2 flat screen TVs, WiFi, a private bar, a private bathroom/changing room with shower and a dining area. With amenities like this you and your 20+ friends and family will be set for the day and you really don't have to.
When you book an all-inclusive day in the Harpoon Brewery Sky Box you get:
Exclusive use of the Harpoon Brewery Sky Box
Après-ski party with appetizers & cash bar
Valley wide shuttle service
Not bad for only $94 or $129 per person depending on whether it's a non-holiday mid-week or a weekend/holiday. You can't even get lift tickets for that much at some resorts.
Another Great Example of a Pandemic Pivot
The Harpoon Sky Box is definitely one of the coolest pandemic related adjustments that I have season this ski season. Waterville Valley and Harpoon Brewery have created the ideal situation for your next group ski vacation. By booking this slodeside suite you and your closest companions can enjoy après-ski in the base lodge, without the crowds that come with it.
Now that's another day at the office that I can get behind.
