Megan Jennings : Guest Services Specialist
Megan moved to Steamboat from Chicago, Illinois, where her large Italian family still resides, to fulfill her dream of living in the mountains. She joins the Moving Mountains team with lots of experience gained as a travel agent for the Steamboat Ski Area. Now she is ready to share her knowledge and love of Steamboat as well as her can-do attitude with new and returning guests.
In the summer, Megan takes advantage of Steamboat’s many hiking trails and spends much of her downtime hiking and relaxing after floating down the Yampa River. In the winter, you will often find her enjoying the mountain on her snowboard. In keeping with her Chicago roots she is a keen fan of the Blackhawks ice-hockey team and she follows them with a passion when she isn't making sure everyone is enjoying Steamboat as much as she does.
Britt Dick : Guest Services Specialist
Britt wandered into Steamboat on her 30th birthday with the intention of staying for one winter season to do research on local trees. The famed “Yampa Valley Curse” had a different plan for her, however, and one short season turned into a permanent settlement. Being an archaeology/anthropology aficionado, she dug right in to the native foods, flavors, footprints, and flares that set this special little Western ranching community apart from the rest. She joined the Moving Mountains Guest Services team to help spread the joy that she uncovered during her life-altering Steamboat dig to new and returning guests from all over the country and world.
When Britt isn’t at the Moving Mountains hub, you can find her tagging mountain peaks near and far, exploring local trails on foot or bike, semi-gracelessly pointing a snowboard or skis downhill on fresh snow, reading a book about apes or dirt, throwing something breakable on a potter’s wheel, inspecting a new beer (or three), cheering on the Green-and-Gold, and hopping last-minute trains and planes to anywhere. Most importantly, you will almost always find her big ol’ Great Pyrenees/St. Bernard mix named “Moose” (aka. the love of her life) in tow.”
