To learn about the history and founding of our mountain resort community instills a sense of pride for all of those who call Vail home. ” – Molly Eppard, Art in Public Places Coordinator

“Our staff at Lion Square Lodge attended a total of 12 guest service training and leadership sessions prior to the holiday season. They enjoyed the training piece of the program and found it very helpful and a good supplement to our in house training program. The staff also enjoyed meeting other hotel, restaurant and retail shop staff from the area and found the networking aspect to be valuable. We have a terrific guest service team this season and our guest feedback has been better than ever, especially regarding our staff.” -Michael Lange, Executive General Manager — Wyndham Vacation Rentals
