With the recent launch of Zillow Smart Search, the Listing Feeds Program, and a much-improved Zestimate algorithm that put us officially out of Beta, Zillow employees — many who have been working non-stop nights and weekends for a few months — got a much-deserved break skiing and snowboarding at Crystal Mountain yesterday.
For a handful of us, this was our first time snowboarding. After much painful trial and error during newbie snowboarding lessons, we were up on the… bunny slopes, slipping, crashing and falling while we watched in envy as our more advanced colleagues graced their way down the black diamond runs. The single-most important thing I learned? It’s very important that you know how to stop before you start sliding. Making yourself fall in order to prevent yourself from hitting the lodge just looks plain stupid – and it hurts, for the record.
Now that we’re all achy and sore, we’re back in the office refreshed and ready to rock! Look for more great stuff to come out of Zillow in the next few months.
