During some of the darkest days in the Pacific Northwest, there’s one place that lights up an entire town. The Coeur d’Alene Resort’s famous holiday lights are radiant once again, but there’s another reason it shines so brightly: team cheer.
Step inside The Resort, and you’ll notice that the culture of holiday joy, customer service, and good humor beams from the inside out. It’s the team that makes the holiday so special, leaving travelers with that inexplicable feeling of belief – in all that is good, in humanity, and maybe even in Santa.
At The Resort, age doesn’t dictate enjoyment. Children and adults alike light up when greeted by elves scurrying about to make special deliveries (never out of character, of course). Adult visitors may catch a glimpse of “Fireside Storytime with Santa’s Elves” and feel an irresistible compulsion to sit and listen. Travelers from near and far sip cocoa and hot toddys in “Igloos on the Lake”, filling the geodesic dome with the warmth of laughter.
It’s no wonder working here during the holidays can feel like a special post at The North Pole. In the spirit of this joyful season, we asked staff members:
What do you love most about working at The Resort during the holidays?
