2020 was a very difficult year for small businesses across the country. It was a challenging year for entrepreneurship in general, with so many new changes and regulations, economic uncertainty, as well as the sudden shift in consumer habits brought about by COVID-19.
The travel and hospitality sectors were one of the hardest hit, as a result of the pandemic. Most travel and tourism companies are still dealing with the aftermath and trying to find ways of navigating this reality that has been referred to as the "new normal." Although we were faced with over 5 months of shut-downs at the onset of our 3rd year in operation with the Cleveland National Forest - we were determined to make 2020 a year of record growth for our company. It was a pivotal year of decisive action and business growth for the outdoor recreation industry, in general
We had the opportunity to explore and expand into new destinations, while reaffirming our commitment to the highest safety and outdoor hospitality standards. We spent time further developing our on-line strategy and guest outreach, while supporting volunteer efforts to better our destination.
All that being said, we are so excited to have been acknowledged as one of Hipcamps top performing hosts of 2020!
Alter Experiences is not just a business we can shut down. It's our mission and lifestyle. More importantly, It's about self-determination, living intentionally and being a business model that stands for change.
