Snow Business magazine: October 2016


The October issue takes us west with a featured story on Alpine Smith of South Lake Tahoe, California. Owner Darin Smith, CSP, shares how his business has evolved and now uses municipal tractors and front-mounted snowblowers to capture significant market share in the tourist-driven location.
Featured in this year’s Community Service Initiative are James Martin (James Martin Associates), Brian Bailey (Rocky Fork Company) and John Reffel III (JLR Sprinkler and Landscape). All three have made substantial contributions to worthy causes in their communities. 
Finally, October wraps up with our annual State of the Industry, sponsored by Caterpillar. Stories this year focused on key challenges such as labor, safety and training, and rethinking how we look at contract structure.
