What to say? Six months till I can ski here again…making me a little teary today. Jamie, one of my favorite staff members, is also retiring today. More tears…
It did, however, turn out to be quite a beautiful ski day. So much snow up here still, and it snowed a little overnight too. We were even blessed by the sun coming out a bit as well. A lovely day, for sure.
There were quite a few skiers that were dressed up today as well to celebrate their love for Cypress, including a loyal passholder, Rebecca Meyer, and her friends!
Let’s end our beautiful season with a beautiful tribute to a beautiful man: Jamie
Jamie is the lovely man who told you where to go . . . to park your car, I mean. He did this for almost 16 years. What a lot of people may not know is that he was a lawyer for 28 years before that! Jamie says “at age 55, once I got into the parking lot, I found my calling”.
Amongst his many accomplishments, Jamie has also been married 49 yrs (amazing), has 6 children (crazy man), and 13 grandkids. He was also a child advocate for 15 years, and really enjoyed that.
These pics are just a few from the great retirement party that Laura Pierson, Adam & Mara, and many others of course, put together. A fine send off, indeed.
As Jamie approaches his 71st birthday in June, he is again looking forward to a new chapter in his life. When I asked him what advice he would give, he responded: “Be calm, be patient, be happy with people.”
Til next season…
