SummitCove Vacation Lodging Recognized in OUTSIDE’S Best Places to Work 2018

Keystone, CO (November 1, 2018) –SummitCove Vacation Lodging has been selected as one of OUTSIDE's Best Places to Work 2018. Winning companies provide great workplaces for employees and encourage a balance between work and enjoying life in the great outdoors, while also respecting the environment.   SummitCove's Marketing Manager, Alyssa Hubbard, states "SummitCove Lodging was so proud to hear that we earned a spot on OUTSIDE Magazine's 'Top 50 Best Places to Work 2018' list.  This is our third year in a row receiving this honor and we are beyond thrilled that our employees feel that SummitCove is such a great place to work.  We strive to find that perfect balance between work and living our best lives in our wonderful Colorado mountain community.  As a company we provide some unique benefits to employees including (but not limited to) a season ski pass reimbursement program, PTO, health insurance options, flexible scheduling, stand-up desks and more. Recently we won a Health Links Colorado grant that allowed us to purchase 2 staff cruiser bicycles that employees can opt into using instead of a car or just take a spin on their lunch breaks during the summer months.  We also have an employee peer-recognition program and wellness program in place. We are really looking forward to another great season here at Keystone Ski Resort and are currently hiring new employees for the upcoming winter."
