Hello Pat,

Just stopping by to say Happy Holidays, you must be busy at Snow Lodge getting it ready for the new season. I hope it's good one for you. I'm praying every day for more snow!!

It also helps my business in West Yellowstone at The Holiday Inn too!!

I hope to come into the Park a couple of times this season, so maybe we can have lunch.

Talk to you later,

I hope to work/explore Zion this summer, then return to Yellowstone next (2011) summer. Lake station was my location in 2009, Rosevelt was the only location I didn't visit. I'm going to put in my application early January. Sorry to be so confusing on this.

Hi, Pat!

I'll be the F&B Manager at Roosevelt Lodge this summer. What did you do at Roosevelt? Are you going to be at management training on April 11th? Hope to meet you there.

Hi Pat welcome to Coolworks,
I guess with the down time between Snow Lodge and OFI, you'll have time on the net.
The Weather channel shows it still is cold & snowy there, is that true? (W. Yellowstone, right?)
Well, I guess I'll see and hear from you more now with fb & cw.

Wow, I was surprised to hear about the modest snow this year in Yellowstone ... I remember how much there seemed to be last year well into May. In fact I was a little shocked at how much ice was on Lake Yellowstone when I first arrived last May .... it was at least two weeks before the first boats began leaving the marina...and another couple of weeks before the Xanterra tour boat started going out on trial runs. I would really enjoy visiting Yellowstone in the winter, but only for a few days. I will dearly miss those cool Wyoming mornings this summer.
