Denali Summer-Living, working, explore the last frontier!

Owned and operated by two best friends, Holly Slinkard, and Tracey Smith since 1997.-wow!  

We are driven to provide quality paying opportunities in an unparalleled vast and majestic wilderness paradise called Denali National Park, and of course, boasting Mt. Denali at 20,310ft, but I digress.  As I was saying quality pay, the best housing in Denali and most importantly...creating an environment that is positive, fun, and inspiring. We know a happy crew makes happy customers, therefore making happy owners.

 

Our expectations are simple: everybody works. We work hard, we play hard, period.  We are only as strong as our weakest and it's all about attitude.  Looking for like-minded folks that are professional, have a GREAT attitude and work ethic, and be good ambassadors of the “Creekside”. A sense of place grows from the purposeful work of maintaining and growing this establishment, cultivating friendships, and our steadfast commitment to providing outstanding hospitality and experiences for our guests in a setting that is beyond compare. Come work in a place surrounded by astonishing beauty, with fantastic people, while learning new things….and maybe something new about yourself.
