Chalet Team


raul_l.jpgRaul Leon

Raul has become an integral team member at Moving Mountains and he has been in Steamboat long enough to almost be considered a local. He has assisted with office operations, chalet management, reservations and guest services while building on experience gained working for the Steamboat ski mountain for several previous seasons. In both Steamboat and Six Flags amusement parks, he received awards for exceptional customer service. His knowledge and enthusiasm for Steamboat is evident as soon as you meet him.

Raul also made his name with Comunidad Integrada, a non-profit organization based in Steamboat that works to build and promote an integrated community. His role included publishing a bi-weekly column in a local newspaper. He was also written up in the Steamboat Magazine for his contributions.

Raul hails from Mexico City but has also lived in Ecuador, Panama, Dominican Republic, and Kyrgyzstan before making a home in Steamboat. He likes to snowboard and gets out on the mountain whenever the chance presents itself. Raul's many other talents include an amazing ability to smile at all times -which always goes down well with people on vacation!

Jenna Wallis

jenna_w.jpgJenna hails from the 'land down under' as most people would know it, born and raised on the NSW Central Coast of Australia. After high school she obtained a hospitality operations traineeship, gaining valuable experience and knowledge in all aspects of the hospitality industry.

Jenna first discovered Steamboat in winter 2011/2012 on her first overseas holiday to America. She fell in love with the Colorado Rockies, champagne powder and the small country ski town 'Steamboat Springs'. She has since travelled across America and Canada but her favorite remains the beauty of the Rocky Mountains.

Jenna leads a healthy, active lifestyle with a passion for sport and the outdoors. She enjoys skiing, touch football, and even watching the NFL. She loves being with people and learning about their lifestyles. You'll find her always on the go, smiling, with an enthusiastic mind and good sense of humor

rowan.jpgRowan Daly

Rowan grew up in Cape Town, South Africa and recently completed a degree in Architectural Technology. Before coming to Steamboat he had never seen snow, but now he snowboards with confidence and can add this to his list of favorite outdoor sports - surfing, hockey, golf, cycling and fishing.

Rowan is already a passionate traveler and has explored Mozambique, Namibia and Pakistan on sports tours before venturing to the USA. As one of the newest members of the Moving Mountains team he has adapted well to mountain life and hospitality helping out in our catered chalets and also as a regular shuttle driver in our Purple People Movers.

Steve also hails from sunny South Africa, on the warm east coast of Durban. Fresh out of university with a post-graduate honors degree in bachelors of commerce in marketing he has been traveling since. Before coming to the USA he spent the summer in the Mediterranean working in the super yacht industry and now experiencing winter in Colorado.

He is an outdoor person, growing up playing many sports like soccer, field hockey and cricket and also enjoys kayaking, surfing and wake boarding which lead to his desire to take up snow boarding which he does whenever possible.

Lulu Martin

Chef Lulu

It seems that cooking has been in Chef Lulu's blood since the beginning of time.  She began in her Mum's kitchen making home-made pasta from the age of 8.  Her education continued at Colorado University in Boulder and culminated in a degree in Culinary Arts from Johnson & Wales University in Denver.  The lure of skiing brought her to the Colorado Rockies.  Since graduating she has worked in Aspen (Hotel Jerome & Lulu Wilsons) and Vail (La Tour) before she came to Steamboat to joing the MM Team.

Lulu doesn't stand still for long.  If she is not cooking, she is usually skiing, biking or hiking.  Like many of our staff she loves to travel and has explored the UK and Europe as well as Singapore and Bali.
