Sunlight employee of the year

Bobby Lombardi is Sunlight Mountain Resort’s employee of the year. He worked 401 hours, the most of any employee, and completed three sweeps a day. Sweeps are when patrolers and advanced skiers ski or ride down the mountain and check each run to make sure someone isn’t stuck or stranded and to ensure everyone is off the mountain safely.

Bobby had the best attitude of all employees and was always making someone smile whether it was a guest or an employee. He earned a one night stay with partner hotel the Hotel Denver and dinner vouchers to a local restaurant for his hard work and dedication.
