Wavetronix is a company that builds sensors and software for traffic forecasting. Every high speed stoplight in Utah has one of their sensors by law, and there are many other states that use their products as well. My dad is over the team that writes the software programs. I admire this company because they really treat their employees well, they have high standards, and they care about families.
This year, for their company party, they held a family reunion at Snowbird Ski Resort. Employees and their families living at home were paid for, and they even paid for up to 10 other family members for each employee. After that, employees could pay for additional family to come up. It worked out that my family got to go and we saw almost all my family that lives in Utah, all except Trent's family.
This event took place over 3 days. Day one was an open house lunch at Wavetronix. They introduced everyone to their products with a hands-on, real-time demonstration using a wagon for the kids, and they had a sensor set up in a truck that tracked their movement in the parking lot and displayed it on a computer screen for us to see. It was really quite fun and cool. All the kids got a plastic Wavetronix helmet to wear.
Day 2 was at Snowbird. We could do all the Snowbird activities and rides from 9-noon for free, that included the mountain roller coaster, alpine slide, tram ride to the top (tunnel and museum up there), ropes course, trampoline thing, bounce houses, sky glider thing, rock climbing, and maybe more that I'm forgetting. We had a lot of fun doing those activities.
|Steve actually hated this thing because it was painful on his legs. He ended up asking to be released after 2 minutes even though he was entitled to 5 minutes.|
|Amara liked this, but she was a little scared of the height.|
|The girls both pulled the sword from the stone. They had to solve riddles and puzzles to get the code to unlock the box that held the key to the sword in the stone. You really couldn't pull it out without the key.|
|This rock chuck wasn't afraid of anyone.|
|Having fun on the mountain coaster|
|The hills are alive on the top of the mountain!|
There was also a game room set up with tables and lots of board games. We spent some time in there.
|The girls were freestyle walking in the parking garage.|
