Angel Fire Resort Says “Jo Knows Lots Of People Need Jobs, Do You?”

By Jo Mixon


Want a job that is better than your vacation?

Saturday, November 10, 2012, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, Angel Fire Resort will hold their annual winter JOB FAIR. Because jobs are a precious commodity these days, I decided to tool around the different areas of the Resort, find out who is hiring, and get the word out to you.

First I spoke with Raine Williams in Human Resources. She gave me a list of the open positions for the coming winter season. The Resort is looking to fill approximately 200 positions. That’s a lot of jobs! Their goal is to build a team of people who enjoy their jobs as well as the many wonderful activities the Resort has to offer. I was told that happy employees make happy guests; therefore, the workforce and the customer service they provide is priority one at Angel Fire Resort!

I went to the Ski & Snowboard School and spoke with Director Robin May. He said they already have many returning ski and snowboard instructors on the roster, but he’d still like to hire around 40 more. Angel Fire Resort hires both certified and un-certified ski and snowboard instructors. Throughout the ski season there will be many training workshops available, including information/education on becoming PSIA certified or obtaining higher levels of certification. Robin said at this time a good job applicant would be high school and/or college students who either live in the area or have a family home here so they could work the Christmas holidays, spring break, and a maybe few weekends. I can’t think of better way to spend time off from school – skiing or snowboarding on your days off while getting paid! Sounds like a win-win to me! Robin says his goal is to inspire everyone with the lifelong passion for winter sports that he and the entire team of fantastic ski and snowboard instructors of Angel Fire Resort all share.

You don’t think becoming a ski or snowboard instructor is the right fit for you? No problem! Joe Kendall, Lodging Manager at the Resort, needs friendly faces to man the front desk and pleasant reservationists to help guests book and plan their vacations in Angel Fire. The Resort is also hiring people to work in the ticket office. Imagine having a job right at the base of the ski mountain!

Or, if are you a little more of the outdoors type, consider applying for a position in lift operations, transportation, or security. Do you have a way with children? Maybe you’d like to work in child care at the Resort Pre-School. Or are you better with one-on-one service? Food and beverage is hiring servers, table bussers, cashiers, baristas, hosts and hostesses, bartenders, dishwashers, line cooks, floor managers, and bar managers. Or if you are really good at keeping things clean and tidy, then housekeeping may be your choice.

Whatever your expertise, there may be a job waiting for you. Spruce up your resume and head over to the Angel Fire Resort Job Fair, Saturday November 10, 2012, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, at the Lodge. Both full-time and part-time positions are available. You will be able to meet with the directors of each department at the Job Fair. These jobs begin in December and last through March. You, too, may be able to brag, my job is better than your vacation!

If you are unable to attend the Job Fair but are interested in winter employment, please fill an application online at:

Rotary Club of Angel Fire’s Interact Club Says “I Know Jo”, Do You?

By Jo Mixon

Haunted House

Spooky fun permeated the atmosphere at the Rotary sponsored Interact Club’s Haunted House Fundraiser. Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 12 to 18. The Rotary Club of Angel Fire sponsors this club, providing support and guidance, but they are a self-governing and self-supported club. Interact Club is made up of about 25 young people from the Moreno Valley High School. Serving as officers this year are Ben Liddle-President, Brandon Dekema-Vice President, McKenna Hedgepeth-Treasurer, Sylvia Kaeck-Secretary and Stephen Hawkes- Sgt-at-Arms. Each year the Interact Club completes at least two community service projects. One of these projects must further international understanding and good will. Ben shared with me their international service project this year is a water project in Somalia. They also help out with the Rotary Club’s pancake breakfasts and other fundraiser’s throughout the year.

Last night Interact staged a Halloween Haunted House Fundraiser as part of the Rotary sponsored Trunk or Treat Community Event in Angel Fire. I was invited behind the scene to tour the haunted house as they were decorating it on Tuesday night. I have to tell you, I was extremely impressed! Without adult supervision, they were hard at work creating a safe, somewhat scary project. The young members exhibited individual responsibility, hard work, team effort and leadership skills. I commend all who were involved!

On Halloween, the doors opened to a line running the entire length of the building, with people waiting to enjoy the haunted atmosphere the Interact members had created! Gasps, screams, laughter and fun were experienced by both young and old. The project was a success. Good job guys! I must say, I am proud to be a part of the community of Angel Fire, New Mexico, where our young people model such personal integrity and creativity!
