Targhee is skiing really well right now... the gumby holiday season crowd didn't really ski out the hill. And we are expecting accumulation from this next storm tomorrow. Were you at Targhee because you are local or was it a fly-by?
Check out my page... I will be posting snow reports on a irregular basis. Spread the word if you care to.
Here's a boring question, how the heck do you add photos using flickr? I already did the "I'll allow it thing" and now whenever I click on the "continue to flickr" it just pops me back to the mycoolworks home page... I dont get it!
Gosh, where have I worked? I'll start with the employers I see on your website currently.
I was at the Hotel Jerome and the Lodge & Spa at Cordillera before Vail Resorts made them Rock Resorts. Ditto the Lodge at Vail. I have worked for their Keystone Lodge, run their Pines Lodge at night and supervised at Cheeca Lodge & Spa in the Keys when VRI ran it as a Rock. I also worked at their Snake River Lodge in Teton Village as well as as night audit manager of their Grand Teton Lodge Company.
I was a guard for VRI at Bachelor Gulch off Beaver Creek and had numerous positions as night auditor in Beaver Creek.
Other experience at properties seen on coolworks are the Sonnenalp in Vail, Glacier Park Incorporated, Yellowstone Park's main concessionaire back when it was TW Services and the Pahaska Teepee Resort.
What's been great about your site is that if and when I
have discovered a great employer, they seem to turn up on coolworks sooner or later.
In New England, I have been the night guy at the Nantucket Inn, the Harborview on the Vineyard and at the Trapp Family Lodge and Notch Brook Resort in Stowe. My one run at a business-type hotel was the five-star, five-diamond Charles Hotel on Harvard Square, which was a big mistake.
Spring Creek Ranch in Jackson was a very nice employer. The Brandin' Iron Motel in West Yellowstone was a sleepy winter spot.
In Aspen, I also worked at the St. Regis, the Snowmass Club and the Sky Hotel.
Sadly, Vail and Aspen and even - to some extent - Jackson have lost some of their small town funk. I moved to Telluride to the Inn at Lost Creek last month and am totally impressed with the area and the property.
Everyone says hello. There are innumerable activities.
The transportation system - via gondola and bus - is totally free and the scenery is such that even Glacier Park and Martha's Vineyard aren't too overwhelming.
I love running hotels or hotel front desks at night in great places. Vail Resorts is opening a Rock Resort in the Carribbean next year and I have never worked in Hawaii where the economy seems to be finally on the mend.
Currently, I work full time as a night auditor here in Telluride while spending my weekends back in Aspen for classes in computer science at Colorado Mountain College.
You guys have the coolest website. Thank you, thank you, thank you for thinking it up and keeping it the single most relevant site on the web.
I have used your site for to get jobs for years and am
amazed at both the variety and the quality of the employers you attract.
By now, many of my former employers who were never a part of your operations have tumbled to the fact that you are the best. I have turned on a number of employers to your site and they have gotten back in touch to let me know how effective you were.
