Meet Alekseyi, the founder
During the 2015 ski season, I was working full-time during the day, but I spent my evenings and weekends as a part-time driver for one of the local limo companies. I transported clients from Denver to the resorts and from the resorts back to Denver. It was often difficult because many of the vehicles were older, and they didn’t have winter tires or ski boxes. I still wanted to provide the best experience possible for my clients, though, so I tried to make them feel comfortable from the moment they hopped in my car. I know they paid a lot of money for the service I was providing, and they deserved to have a good time.
While I drove, I would often chat with the clients. It didn’t take long to realize that all of them were interesting, and each one had an incredible life story. Needless to say, I spent that winter perfecting my English. As soon as ski season ended, I decided to buy my own car and offer a safer and more affordable alternative to the transportation I had been providing for the limo company.
By September of 2016, I was ready to go. I registered my company and started building a website. (That was probably one of the biggest challenges I faced in starting this business since I had no experience at all in web design.) By the end of September, I had purchased the first vehicle for my fleet: a Cadillac Escalade ESV. I also bought snow tires and a ski box. By early December, the website was complete, and I was ready for the rest of the ski season–or so I thought.

That December, I didn’t receive a single call. Christmas and New Year’s passed, and the phone still didn’t ring. Luckily, I hadn’t quit my full-time job. Then, in the middle of January of 2017, I ran into the owner of another limo company in the area. He was kind enough to share some advice. He also explained how to attract customers and develop a better website. My first client called me at the end of January. I was thrilled (and grateful!).
More than five years later, my company performs over 1,000 transfers per ski season. Our fleet includes more than 10 vehicles, and we have a team of 16, including professional drivers and dispatchers. Since day one, we’ve been committed to providing exceptional service, maintaining the cleanest vehicles, and meeting all the state’s safety requirements.
