Our July 11th HOA meeting was highly informative, including an incredible presentation (click on the link below) by Joel Turner, Vail’s Grand Summit Manager. He outlined Vail’s protocols to protect guests and owners (which in many cases go above and beyond the standards set by Summit County) during their visit to the resort. He also highlighted what we already knew about our building, “we are more than just a hotel room”. This should be a real game changer for guests who want to self-cater during their Park City stay.

Mike Howe, All Seasons Resorts Chief Financial Officer (CFO), advised that arrears through June 2020, were 50 percent as compared to last year. We thank all owners for their punctual payments during these tumultuous times.

Our cost cutting efforts continue at a good pace, the fiscal year (May/June) savings so far were $150,000. Including April, the savings to date are more than $250,000.

With the hotel occupancy at less than 20 percent, the need for room maintenance/repairs has been cut significantly. While we hated to do it during the Pandemic, we released two maintenance workers.

To comply with current Summit County health regulations, we added a pool/gym attendant to sanitize equipment and surfaces. Additionally, we ordered a portable ionizer to handle county mandated disinfecting of common areas.

The new door locking systems have been installed and are getting positive reviews.

A host of owners’ questions were answered on the HOA meeting call; responses are available on our HOA website.

Special thanks to our newest board member, Peter Hutt, who was a road warrior. He drove from Seattle to be on campus for our Board meeting. That is real dedication.

We are incredibly grateful for the efforts of Stephen Polvere, Mark Hoagland, and Joel Turner for their tireless efforts in ensuring that guests and owners have great experiences during their stay at the Grand Summit. They have done a remarkable job doing more with less for all of us. When you are next in town, thank them.

Stay healthy and keep washing your hands.
