Work Hard, Play Harder: Find the Perfect Career in Breckenridge

Most of us BGV employees ended up living amongst these gorgeous mountains in pursuit of adventure, leaving hopes of a career behind. We were willing to give up traditional lifestyles, choosing instead to focus on living for the moment. We did so gladly. We understood that happiness is achieved through experiences that can’t always be encountered from behind a desk. We kissed our hopes for a career goodbye because we thought that was the compromise we had to make in order to live and play in Summit County. And, it seemed worth it, at least for a short while.

But, what if we told you that you can have your cake and eat it, too? That’s right! You CAN grow your professional career, all while living out your dreams in beautiful Breckenridge. How? Work for Breckenridge Grand Vacations (BGV). It really is that simple.

BGV is known as the employer of choice in Summit County, consistently distinguished as a Top Workplace by the Denver Post and recently named as the Best Place to Work by the Summit Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards. BGV has just over 500 employees, almost 200 of which have been with the company for a significant amount of time. Career longevity is strong at BGV.

With 68 employees having worked at the company for three to five years, 81 employees having worked at the company for five to ten years, and 30 employees having worked at the company for over 10 years, the proof is in the pudding (or, the powder). In case you weren’t aware, those are extremely impressive statistics for this seasonal resort town!

How does BGV manage to not only hang on to employees but get them excited to go to work every day? According to Guest Services Supervisor, Julianna Nopson, “BGV goes above and beyond when it comes to taking care of their employees! When you are a part of BGV, you truly feel like a part of a big happy family who really cares about each other!”

BGV has two full-time employees dedicated to training staff on the BGV culture and it makes a Grand difference. The company embraces an inverted pyramid leadership style, making the executive leadership team approachable and supportive to any level employee. Everyone at the company is treated as an equal, even by the Owners/ Developers, Mike Millisor and Mike Dudick, who know the majority of their 500 employees by name. There are many other reasons that members of the BGV family stick around for so long, but you’ll have to learn more about that in your interview! Apply today at BGVjobs.com.

November is an exciting time of year in Breckenridge as the winter season begins, and Breckenridge Ski Resort’s opening day will be here soon. Breckenridge will be opening at Peak 8, which is a short gondola ride from Grand Lodge on Peak 7. The current opening day has been moved from November 11, but not official date has been released. For continued updates on the snow conditions, please visit Snow.com.

With the winter season beginning, parking becomes the resort’s most popular amenity. We want to remind our owners of our Day Use parking policies and how to reserve your space. Day Use parking is limited to one parking space per ownership and up to eight people total per reservation. You can book your space seven days in advance beginning at 7 a.m. Please visit Grand Central to reserve your parking space. These spaces are available on a first-come basis and there is an option to be added to a waiting list. Remember, all confirmed reservations must check in at the Concierge Desk to avoid losing Day Use privileges for two weeks.

The Grand Lodge on Peak 7 staff would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and Grand start to the ski season!
