John D'Amico is the General Manager for Resort Property Management. John moved here in 1995, and was working for Big Sky Resort the first winter the tram was running skiers up to the top of Lone Peak. After working for Big Sky Resort for almost twenty years John decided to step down from his Food and Beverage Director job and spend some time fishing. It was then that he was sought out by Resort Property Management in the fall of 2013 to take over as General Manager.
Pam Butterworth is our Reservations Manager and River Rock
Lodge's General Manager. Pam has a myriad of hospitality experience since
moving here in 1990 to make her our perfect Reservations
Manager. Since Pam started at the River Rock in fall of 2012,
she has recruited half of the year-round staff, including John,
Shannon, and Tami. When she is not creating excellence in the
work place, you can find her hiking with her dog Iggy or rowing
the fishing boat with her husband, Stuart.
Linda Grimm is our detail oriented accountant. As a CPA, Linda brings a lot of experience with her to her desk at RPM. After teaching upper level accounting at Montana Tech University in Butte, even spending time as the Dean of the Business School, Linda decided it was time to ski. In 1995 she bought a condo in Hidden Village and has spent as much time on the slopes as possible. Linda joined the RPM team in spring of 2016.
Shannon Westblade is our Guest Services Specialist. Shannon accidentally ended up in Big Sky in 2013 and is extremely happy about it. After growing up in her parent's bed and breakfast in Michigan, Shannon was naturally dispositioned for guest services. After working in the Non-Profit industry, at a law-firm, and in restaurants, and realizing that her degree in American History was as useful as she thought it would be, Shannon found her niche at RPM when she moved to Big Sky as our go-to for concierge and front desk service.
Dave Schwalbe is our Maintenance Specialist. Dave uses his economics degree and his adventurous outdoor spirit to be our jack-of-all-trades maintenance man. Dave moved to Big Sky in 2000 to follow his brother and work at his landscape company, and joined the Resort Property Management team in 2005. Since then, when Dave is not mountain biking or skiing he will be the friendly face at the door when you have a light bulb to change, a deck to be shoveled, or something to fix.
