As you know, a company is only as good as its employees. And Blizzard has a great bunch of employees!

- Profit sharing
- Annual rafting and skiing days
- A dog-friendly environment
- 2 or 3 monitors per employee
Here is a copy of our press release:
Colorado is known as a popular vacation hotspot for tourists; for those lucky enough to live in Colorado, finding a great place to work is a challenge.
Known for providing a high-quality blend of online marketing solutions for the hospitality and travel industries, Blizzard Internet Marketing, Inc. was recently named as one of Colorado’s Best Companies to work for.
Blizzard Internet Marketing prides itself on being a family, fun, and pet-friendly workplace with a core value based in customer service and company culture.
The Best Companies to Work for Award is given in conjunction by Colorado Biz Magazine, the Colorado State Council of the Society of Human Resource Management, and Jobing.com.
Located in the heart of Colorado’s Roaring Fork Valley between Vail and Aspen, the company was founded by Trent and Susan Blizzard in 1997 when the idea of search engine marketing, and the internet, was still in its infancy.
During the mid 90’s, Trent and Susan traveled the country seeking a small town with easy access to skiing, fishing, and airports. In 1998 Blizzard relocated to the perfect small town: Glenwood Springs, Colorado.
Today, Blizzard Internet Marketing provides a unique workplace in which knowledge is shared, fairness and teamwork is widely respected, and each member of the company is highly valued.
The current employee has been with Blizzard Internet Marketing over 5 years on average. In this small company each person understands the direct affect that they have on company, and clients’, success.
What makes Blizzard Internet such a great place to work? The company recognizes employees with frequent awards, annual ski and rafting trips, profit sharing, and the company’s overall value of a healthy work-life balance.
Blizzard Internet Marketing challenges their employees to further their knowledge of search engine marketing and to seek profitable strategies for their clients to market online. Several employees are known experts within the search marketing community and are invited to present at hotel, resort, vacation rental manager, and travel industry trade shows.
