Dave & Barb Peckler met in Snowmass at the Stonebridge Inn in 1982. Dave, a raft guide, approached Barb, who worked at the hotel. It was love at first sight. Since then, the two have made Snowmass and the Roaring Fork Valley their home. Barb has had stints at Alpine Bank and as the director of the Snowmass Snow Bunnies (a former ski school program for 4-5 year old’s), before joining the Town of Snowmass Village 13 years ago as the Court Clerk/Office Manager. Dave quickly transitioned from rafting guide to the Town of Snowmass Village Transportation Department, where he has been for the last 43 years and now serves as Director. Snowmass Tourism is delighted to honor this long-standing Snowmass couple.
