One World Ski Event, One Small Town and One Group of Google+ers...
Yesterday in Vail, Colorado the 2015 FIS World Ski Championships began. In the UK we don't get much snow - even if we talk about it a lot
when it happens - and consequently, Great Britain is not very successful when it comes to skiing :(
But this world event involves a lot more than just a whole ton of snow and 150,000 people descending on Vail for the big event. It's significant too for the small town of Eagle, about 25 miles down the road from Vail, and a small team of Google Plussers (from all over the world, just like the skiers) headed by +Debi Davis
who have been working hard on a project to help 15 businesses in Eagle to claim, verify, optimise and socialise their Google My Business pages
- and to be properly visible on Google Maps.
So, in wishing great skiing and good luck to skiers from all over the world - especially Team GB :) - a very big well done to the small team of fabulous Google Plussers (brought together through +Plus Your Business!
) involved in getting Eagle on the Map

Thanks to +Cherie Manifest
for this post and also a big h/t to +Nina Trankova
who has been positively prolific with posting on Google+ for this project., but also to the other +EagleCO Vail2015
project team members, who have been great to work with.
P.S. Coincidentally, looking out of my window this morning, I see our first and possibly only dusting of snow this winter... where's my skis! :)
