The Best Thing About Working At Mount Snow

Friday, April 17, 2015

The best thing about working at Mount Snow....the people I work with. They make me laugh, pick me up when I am in a crummy mood and always make me proud of the things they are able to achieve. This season was no exception.  It was long and cold and everyone just kept going, never complained (well, maybe a little) and got the work done.  I'll admit it, on rare occasion they drive me nuts but I realize that is deserved payback for all of the grief I give them.  That is why this blog is dedicated to each and every Mount Snow staff member, volunteer and your families (for putting up with the life of a "ski industry worker.") Thank you.

                            Parting Shot - December 2014 - a favorite time of day

Fittingly, our 60th year of operation, was one to be remembered.  The Mount Snow Valley was transformed into a winter wonderland.  You earned your "hearty skier" badge by skiing and riding your tails off, despite the sustained cold.  Thank you for making our year so successful.
