About Crested Butte Lodging

Owner, General Manager

Wanda is the General Manager and owner of Crested Butte Lodging & Property Management and its sister company, Snow Team CB. When she was a teenager, she told her parents that she wanted to be a stand-up comic. They thought she was joking and dismissed the idea…so that sent her searching for new careers, eventually finding a fit with real estate. Poor timing though, back in the ’90s, to try to feed a family on real estate sales commissions. As luck would have it, a property management company noticed that she had plenty of time on her hands and so they put her to work closing hot tubs each night. Later, they put her on the phone in the reservations office; after that, she was assigned to front desk shifts; then, the accounting department needed help; after that, she was tapped to field after-hours emergencies; a bit later, housekeeping needed help so she cleaned rooms; and then, she moved on from all the part-time gigs and took the Sales and Marketing Director position for ResortQuest Crested Butte and Telluride. If you’ve heard of Crested Butte or Telluride, it might be because of Wanda’s efforts! When the General Manager position opened, guess who was appointed!?  And when ResortQuest was offered for sale, Wanda jumped at the opportunity.

When she’s not managing property, Wanda can often be found on a Nordic trail or paddleboard with her cell phone muted. Her favorite color is shiny. She has 2 grown children and she doesn’t know if she’s planning to have grandchildren.


Quirky & Lovable

GiGi reaps the benefits of life with Wanda.

You’ll find her out on every trail, summer and winter!
