The Superheroes of the Maintenance Team
Operating four lodges in the backcountry is no easy feat. The lodgeistics of keeping the operation going day to day is truly impressive. The constant flow of food, supplies, staff, guests and everything in between keeps everyone on their toes. The maintenance department is tasked with keeping the buildings in tip-top shape, making sure all equipment is running and being maintained, as well as getting everything and everyone up and down from the lodge safely. Though they do all of this in the background and are not as visible as other departments, their efforts are essential. When issues arise, they spring into action and deal with the problem – often at less than ideal times and in bad weather. If you see the maintenance crew around, make sure to give them a high five.
The team consists of:
Andrew Brown / Operations Manager – Andrew has been with the lodge for 14 years. As a ski industry veteran with a background as a millwright, Andrew brings an expertise to many different aspects of the department. His even-keeled personality lends a sense of calm when things go awry.
