Friday. Well, I guess I was fooled. 45 minutes to get to work from the employee parking lot. I had to J-Walk, run across two icy parking lots, then race across another icy parking lot in ski boots to be late by 6 minutes (9:46). I was late, then written up. I am not sure what is going on exactly.
Monday. The parking was better. The bus drivers have power to make decisions on the fly. That is an improvement. Things get fluid out there. I am very happy to see the flexability with transportation. I believe the management is very aware of the problem, and now making adjustments to better serve all its guests during the busy March days. Thank you!
Previously I wrote (abridged):
Thank you Mr. McCarthy and Mr. Buhler. You attempting to be world class leaders in the ski industry. Please accept my apologies for the harsh criticism. But I must say, I still don’t understand the Broomfield home office. Being so far away from the action seems like a metaphor for what is happening around the resort.
Breckenridge is in the midst of incredible growth. The future is very bright. With growth comes opportunity. I am very happy to see and hear John and Roger working to make things better. The future is bright at Breckenridge the World Class ski area. Thank you for sharing some of your valuable time with me.
I very much enjoy sharing the passion of snowsport with our guests. As do all of our instructors and employees. I believe that compassion for the internal guest is still in need of embracing.
p.s. And for those who may think I was pressured or was told to remove rants for VRI. No fear. They did not ask me to remove the rant pages. I offered to remove them. My reasons for posting such rants are to simply share a POV that is not being listened to by those who can make a change. Fortunately, I had spent the past 5 years developing a few companies which are creating financial security. I don’t teach skiing for a living. I teach it for a lifestyle. In other words, “I don’t need the money, but I gladly accept the money”. Thank you to my students!
I am saddened at seeing “The Peter Principle” in action at the supervisor, mid-mgmt level. We need further training of the supervisor staff.
My objective with this section of the site to express frustrations that are not being heard in order to help Breckenridge maintain its status as one of the top resorts in the world. Once I feel an honest effort has been made in listening and addressing the issues. I do not feel voicing the rant is appropriate, as the message has been heard and addressed.
Unfortunately, the employee parking issues and a few specific supervisors are still real issues which need to be addressed. I will continue to voice these concerns.
Thank you Mr. McCarthy and Mr. Buhler. You are both World Class leaders in the ski industry. And thank you Mr. Rob Katz for bringing some of my writings to those two individuals.
