Shannon Cormier Vice President Rental Operations
Shannon’s introduction to vacation rentals began as a child visiting a beach house near Mystic, CT. Sea level to ski level life changes found her in Winter Park by 1995. Cleaning condos by day and checking guests in at night evolved into broadening her knowledge of property management company operations – from reservations, group sales, owner relations, accounting, to homeowner association administration, including timeshare resorts. The fond memories of short-term renting and the love for Grand County carry through to her present days as the VP of Rental Operations for Stay Winter Park.
Shannon’s management theory for vacation rental is in part about wellness. Stay Winter Park provides the owner peace of mind with property care services while making great stays happen for vacation rental guests. If you are seeking a rental manager for your mountain home investment, be sure to connect.
Morgan Keller Timeshare & Hospitality Manager
After meeting my husband 16 years ago and coming directly from New Orleans, LA there was a bit of a coulter shock. He introduced me to Colorado and the wonders of living in Grand County. I started by working at Winter Park Ski Resort as most do and watched my world change. With my love of hiking, going to the lakes and watching the wildlife it wasn't hard to fall in love with this area. After 10 years at the resort my husband and I decided to start a family. I have now been with Stay Winter Park for 4 years. Going from helping customers customize their skiing vacation at the resort to lodging helps with rounding out your vacation to make it a great one.
Erika Schwankl Director of Sales and Marketing

Pamela Flor-Stout Group & Reservation Manager
A native from the heart of South America – Paraguay- I came to Grand County 15 years ago to learn more about the Lodging and Tourism industry. I was to stay only for 18months but of course once you experience the splendor and endless adventures you can find in Grand County and Colorado, as well as finding my other half decided to stay for life.
I identify as a self-directed, resourceful, dynamic and analytical person. I enjoy finding the perfect spot within our properties to our clients and when things are a little rough I can be quite the creative problem solver.
I rejoice on having the time to enjoy with my family and experience what Winter Park and the Fraser valley has to offer: going on a hike, a mountain bike ride, or snowboarding/tele skiing. I love the sunrises in the winter and the sundown in the summer.
