Love Where You Work
Wintergreen strives to hire the right people; however, that’s only half the battle. We realize that employees have a variety of other employment options in this region, so it’s important that we inspire them to stick around.
With that in mind, here are some of the programs we use to recognize associates.
Vice President, Mountain Operations
Jay Roberts began his career at Wintergreen during the winter of 1986 as a junior ski patrol volunteer. Fifteen years old at the time, Roberts spent his winter weekends traveling back and forth from his home in Richmond, Va. (almost a two-hour commute one way). Today, he participates in all areas of resort management, including ski operations, adventure programs, transportation, facilities development and risk management.
Vice President, Food & Beverage
Lynn Tyler started as a waitress in The Copper Mine restaurant during her college years. Her quick eye for detail and business acumen quickly propelled her from the night shift to supervisor to manager of The Copper Mine. Today she is responsible for overseeing all the resort’s restaurants, renovations, planning and execution of new outlets, as well as supervising conference services.
