HOW DID YOU END UP IN ASPEN?
Since moving to Colorado in 2015, I’ve dreamed of living in the mountains full-time, but was waiting for the right opportunity to leave Denver. Needless to say, I was thrilled to make the Roaring Fork Valley my home base after accepting my offer with SkiCo.
WHAT DO YOU TELL YOUR FRIENDS THAT YOU DO FOR WORK?
“Think of me as IT for HR.”
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE JOB?
The people! The culture at SkiCo attracts active, adventurous, down-to-earth people who are passionate about connecting with others. I’m grateful to be a part of the SkiCo community and feel so fortunate to work with such a diverse, compassionate, and fun group of people.
WHAT DO YOU FIND MOST CHALLENGING ABOUT YOUR JOB?
Like any seasonal industry, it’s all hands on deck during peak season. At SkiCo, the winter months can be challenging because of the increased workload, however, even the busiest leaders still make time to hit the slopes when there’s good snow.
WHAT SKILLS OR CHARACTERISTICS DO YOU THINK YOUR JOB REQUIRES?
Attention to detail, complex problem solving, effective time management, technical expertise, excellent customer service, and a positive attitude.
WHAT MAKES ASPEN UNIQUE?
I’m still getting to know the town of Aspen and its community, however, even though I’ve only been here for ~3 months, I can say with certainty that the undeniable beauty of the mountain range and surrounding valley is in a class all its own.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT WORKING AT ASPEN SKIING COMPANY?
