“My family and I have made the commitment to invest in mountain communities, preserving our parents’ legacy that everyone should have access to the best health and nutrition products at affordable prices, along with the knowledge to support their own health. On or off the slope, we know our store offerings and free nutrition programs will fit perfectly with the communities’ active lifestyles,” said Natural Grocers Co-President Kemper Isely.
As the official grocer of Steamboat Ski Resort and Winter Park Resort, Natural Grocers will be prominently displayed on signage throughout the resorts, have a presence at select resort events, provide a special gift at select lodging and more.
“Natural Grocers’ focus on living a healthy, active lifestyle aligns perfectly with the year-round recreation opportunities available to our guests at Steamboat and Winter Park Resort. We are very excited to work with Natural Grocers and look forward to introducing our guests to this great brand in creative and thoughtful ways through this sponsorship,” said Alterra Mountain Co. Director of Brand Partnerships Ryan Blanchard.
A first glimpse of the partnership will be visible at the Winter Park Farmer’s Market, where Natural Grocers will serve as presenting sponsor. The Farmer’s Market will be held July 21, Aug. 18 and Sept. 15.
