HELP! Winter at Old Faithful?

Need some advice from anyone who has wintered at Old Faithful. I put in for a winter position here at Yellowstone and it is looking like I am going to get stuck at Old Faithful. I REALLY wanted to be here at Mammoth but those positions are very few and very very hard to get.Being trapped at OF for the winter already has me paranoid. No way in, no way out. No vehicle. I don't ski or snowshoe. I wanted the winter position for the chance to go out to Lamar and view the wildlife. OF is my least…See More

"That's terrific Melissa!  I figure it was your voice at talent night that did it for you.  It was going to be either F&B manager or a grammy. Enjoy Yellowstone as winter sets in.  Richard"

Mammoth Happiness!

LOVE this location! Being in Mammoth Hot Springs is just better all around. Except for playing musical parking spaces and dodge elk lol.

Much happier in the Assistant F&B Manager position- using me as a dining room host when I have 30 some odd yrs of experience and two degrees in the field was sort of like using a chainsaw to cut a toothpick! 

The Lamar Valley is always hopping with some kind of wild life and have been on a couple of hikes in the park. Going to get my back…

Lake Disappoinment

Posted on May 19, 2013 at 9:41am 10 Comments

So far I am very disappointed with the Lake Yellowstone location. Sure it is pretty- but once you have driven around and walked around - that's it. There is absolutely nothing to do. Well, unless you want to go get drunk at the employee pub. Most of the employee rec activities take place M- F- so those of us who drew Sat and Sun off are shit out of luck.

No wildlife here. There was a report of a grizzly wandering through one night- but we did not get to see it. A few bears if you…
