Making Mountains out of Social Media Hills

What does one of the Adirondack's 46'r High Peaks, Lower Wolf Jaw, have to do with the quickly becoming Social Media Giant Twitter?

It was used as an incredible Marketing tool for The High Peaks Resort in Lake Placid, NY.

I'm part of Twitter. You can find me here: Greeneyezz. Bill, who is the Marketing Director for High Peaks Resort can be found here: HighPeaksResort.
HighPeaksResort has a very creative special going on right now, and will be through the beginning of June. The 46 High Peaks of the Adirondacks, so called due to their elevations being over 4000 ft. (there are 4 under 4000 ft, but that's a separate story.) Anyway, if following HighPeaksResort on either Twitter or Facebook, they are featuring a different High Peak 46'r each day. When they do, you are given a total of 46 minutes to book reservations to stay there at a special reduced rate. The rate by which you are charged, corresponds to the elevation in feet of each High Peak they feature for the day. So I decided to try for this today and...Waaaa Laaaa...I got it! Today's feature Mountain, is Lower Wolf Jaw, with an elevation of 4175 ft; therefore, I was able to book a room for two nights at $41.75 per night! Yaaaay!
You can find out more about this here: Elevate Your Rate. They also had a TV Spot talking about this. You'll find out about it here: Video Clip. It's not too late to join Twitter and watch for this daily Mountain special.

And this goes out to Bill .... Great use of this media! I look forward to spending time there. :)

Summit of Mount Jo 9/24/10 A few friends were worried about me. They were worried about me hiking Mount Jo by myself, so I took this video to show how many people were around that day if I needed assistance. I even chatted with several and had a few people share a glass of wine with me at the summit. :) Mount Jo. 9/24/10 After the crowd left This is what the summit looked like... with no people on it. In the previous video I took, I showed all the people who had made this same hike to her summit.
