2020/2021 All Employees

2021 Years Of Service

The last year will be remembered primarily for the global pandemic. But through it all, Purgatory and our hundreds of employees still succeeded in delivering against our mission to “Give People the Freedom to Ski” whether it was summer, fall or winter. We learned to adapt to keep our businesses operating without missing a beat, all while keeping ourselves and our guests safe. We have faced and overcome many obstacles we have never encountered before and some of them have actually helped us transform our guest experience for the better, in ways that we will continue to offer post-pandemic. Today we put the challenges of the past year behind us so we can focus on celebrating the hard work and dedication of Purgatory employees who have achieved milestone terms of service we recognize with a Years of Service Award.

People are and always will be our greatest asset. It gives us great pride in knowing we have such passionate and committed staff who have chosen Purgatory Resort as their place of work for 5, 10, 25, or even 40 or more years of their careers. Please know that each and every one of you is an important member of the team and your abilities and contributions will remain a crucial part of our continued success, we hope for many years to come.

It gives us great pleasure to recognize you today for the milestone level of service you have achieved in support of Purgatory Resort and to present you with these Years of Service Awards.
