SummitCove Vacation Lodging is the premier provider of Keystone vacation rentals and property management at Keystone Resort, Colorado. The company has been in business since 2001, when it started in the company owners’, Peter and Cheri Reeburgh’s kitchen, renting out their personal condo located in the Summit Cove neighborhood near Keystone. Soon the business grew, along with the team employed by SummitCove Lodging, today managing over 300 vacation rentals properties and a core 50+ full time staff directly in Keystone. Ask any employee why they enjoy working at the company and you will likely hear a variety of responses, but one of the most common relates back to the team, the culture and their coworkers. Some say, “It feels like a family” or “I love who I work with”… there is a unique company culture here that allows team members to rely heavily on each other and trust in their team and leaders.
The company recently embarked on an entirely new financial way of operating and began ‘The Great Game of Business’ in October of 2019. The ‘GGOB’ is a type of open-book management that engages employees, teaching them to learn and live the financials of the company. Each week they have a huddle, discussing the numbers, where they stand and what they can do to improve the bottom line, ultimately ‘playing the game’ with the opportunity to earn additional quarterly bonuses. Each employee is given the tools and opportunities to make their own decisions, grow within the company and be successful.
In addition to a great work atmosphere and employee empowerment, the benefits that the company offers aren’t too bad either. In addition to the Great Game of Business bonus programs, SummitCove employees have health insurance options, a 401 K plan with employer matching and they start earning PTO days from day 1 (including seasonal employees). Ski pass reimbursement, discounted rec center passes, and a solid health and wellness program add to the mix of the perks of working with this company.
This past summer, the company was recognized as the ‘Best Place to Work’ at the Summit Chamber’s 2019 Business Excellence Awards. The company has been awarded with similar awards over the years, including Outside Magazine’s Best Places to Work multiple years in a row and the Denver Post’s Top 150 Workplaces.
