Aspen Skiing Company employees that choose not to drive alone to work enjoy at least one or more of the following: a lower carbon footprint, free wifi on RFTA, carpooling companionship, a chance to exercise (if biking or walking), and the opportunity to enter the ASC Commuter Raffle to win $$$.
The last of which is a benefit provided by the Aspen Skiing Company to encourage our employees to commute creatively and reduce the carbon impacts of single car trips. Employees can purchase subsidized bus passes to use to and from work, bike racks and showers (in some locations) are provided for those that prefer pedal power, and organized van carpools make it even easier to get to the office. Employees that opt for these alternative means of transportation are eligible to enter the monthly raffle to win one of five AMEX gift cards valued at $100 or $75. Though only open to Aspen Skiing Company employees this program aims to inspire employees and all residents of the valley to explore all of their options to reduce their visits to the gas station.
