OK, the title sounds a bit grandiose, but who cares when there's someone to drive down to snow level and perform the dreaded task.
"We have a lot of guests who haven't had the experience and pleasure of being in snow," lodge general manager Joe St. Laurent says. Translation: Folks flip out at the prospect of driving in snow and having to put chains on their tires. And, as of Wednesday, it was snowing at the park, with more expected this weekend.
St. Laurent says he sends out the snow chain concierge about five to eight weekends during a typical winter. So what qualities make for an appropriate concierge? "People get stressed out, so someone who's calm ... and keeps guests in good spirits," St. Laurent says.
