Elm Creek Park Reserve Ready for Snow, Still Needs Seasonal Workers
During the holiday break, winter recreation enthusiasts of all ages descend upon Elm Creek Park in Maple Grove.
“It’s been steady,” said Bruce Bolduan, Elm Creek’s park operations supervisor. “A lot of people are getting out and enjoying the season.”
With activities like snowboarding and cross-country skiing, set against the backdrop of a winter wonderland, it’s no wonder why this is their busiest week of the season.
“It’s fun to see people get out and enjoy the winter,” Bolduan said. “Especially right now with the world we’re living in, outdoor activities are really a premium; and winters get long so you have to get out and enjoy it.”
Yet much like any business, you need staff to provide the desired level service. The good news is that the winter break has brought back an influx of college students who can help in the short term.
But college classes will eventually start back up, and Bolduan says Elm Creek could use about 20 to 30 seasonal staff to fill their various needs.
“I could use people to help in the kitchen, or in the lifts, or instructors,” Bolduan said. “We have a variety of positions. It’s a fun place to work.”
It is, after all, a place where people go for the sole purpose of having a good time. Bolduan hopes that will be a big draw for anyone seeking employment.
“You’re just around smiling, happy people,” he said.
Meanwhile, the tubing hill will officially open on Thursday, Dec. 30. Bolduan says anyone interested in the tubing hill will have to make reservations online.
