In October 2016, the upper mountain area of Squaw Valley was inundated with an unexpected 10 inches of rainfall. At the time of year when snow is the norm, this deluge produced a significant problem of water contamination for the upper mountains ski area. Squaw Valley immediately notified guests staying in the affected areas that used the now contaminated water supply and provided bottled water for drinking and cooking. The local water control authorities were also notified. The restaurants at the upper mountain remain closed until this water issue is rectified.
Anyone who knows about keeping natural well water pure and safe for drinking knows that large amounts of rain can mix with the soil and any contaminants in the soil at the surface and flow into the previously clean water source. The natural filtration that takes place with regular rainfall is not a problem, but this rain was of biblical proportions and hence the contamination problem for Squaw Valley.
Squaw Valley remains an iconic ski resort that is using all the latest technologies available to be cognizant of the local weather and the chance of precipitation and snowfall. The resort uses the latest snowmaking hardware and snow grooming techniques to make the resort the best skiing experience for all skiiers. This water quality problem should be cleared up by the fall ski season.

Everyone wants trendy, comfortable, and affordable clothing. In the workout apparel industry, before 2013, this was a segment of the industry that was lacking. There were plenty of expensive brands, but nothing affordable for everyone. However, Fabletics was launched to help fill the niche of trendy and stylish workout clothing that can be affordable for every budget. In just a few years, Fabletics had turned itself into a multi-million dollar company taking on the big companies like Amazon, who controls twenty percent of the fashion industry, and has become an industry leader in workout apparel. Actress Kate Hudson is an active member of the Fablectics brand and helps cultivate and approve all clothing offered at the company.
Fabletics runs a majority of its business through an online subscription based membership model. They offer their VIP members their first outfit at a reduced price. To help tailor their clothing choices, their members take a lifestyle quiz to help determine their workout and style preferences. This helps narrow down the choices and outfits to pick from on the site, making it much easier to choose and browse through outfits that you will love. At the beginning of each month, their members receive hand picked outfit choices that are chosen based on their preferences. They can choose which outfit they want to be sent to them that month for their low monthly fee. Plus, they are shipped for free! If you decide that you would rather not have an outfit that month, simply choose the skip a month option in your account. You will not be charged for an outfit that month. Their clothing holds its shape and compression, doesn’t fade after many washes, and is most importantly, comfortable for your everyday life.

When their members shop in store, the items show up in their online shopping cart. For Fabletics, it doesn’t matter if their members purchase in store or online. When many traditional brick and mortar retailers are struggling when customers come in their stores to see items in person, but then find them online cheaper and purchase them there, Fabletics is using their stores simply as a way to get to know their customers better and provide more customer service. Plus thirty to fifty percent of those that enter the store are already members, but another twenty-five percent join while in store, creating an even larger customer base.
