Can I come visit the shop?

We welcome visits. Please write to LonePeakHotshots@gmail.com with “Shop Visit” in the subject line to schedule a time. Wednesdays after 10:00 work best.
A typical visit lasts less than 30 minutes. We will show you around the facility, show you the buggies, and talk about your resume. It’s a good way to put a face to the name.
