Who are you? What do you do at Holiday Valley and how long have you been working here?

I should probably say winter.  I love skiing so much but it is nice to be a little more relaxed in summer.

Your vacation is my job.  And I have the best team, summer and winter.

When you’re not working, how do you enjoy spending your time?

I am slowly building a farm, hehe.  SO I stay busy with projects for the animals.  I also love to hike and bring my crew of Chesapeake Bay retrievers with me.  I also paint, it's incredibly fun for me to get to be creative in my free time.

If you’re off work and having fun with friends at Holiday Valley, what are you doing?

Golfing, skiing, beer is good, hiking, painting, winning rummy, entertaining friends.

Most underrated thing to do at Holiday Valley in your opinion?

When no one is on the hill, being out on it is rejuvenating.

I always love working events, and when they are done, to be able to sit with the crew and laugh about the struggles and triumphs of the days makes it worth it.

In your opinion, what makes Holiday Valley special?
