Ask Bret, and he’ll tell you he has the best job in town. Few would disagree. Although Bret makes his job look easy, being the consummate pro at maximizing fun requires both skill and experience.  Bret came to Sun Mountain Lodge more than 30 years ago after earning his BA degree in Recreation Management from Eastern Washington University. As our Activities Shop manager, Bret is credited with developing our entire activities program and putting together a team of experts equally skilled in the art of making vacations memorable.  Bret’s talent as a manager is matched by an impressive resume of athletic credentials. Skiing since the age of 3, Bret has risen to the elite level of his sport in both Alpine and Nordic skiing, coaches the Alpine Ski Team at Loup Loup Ski Bowl, and holds the title of Chief Examiner for regional Nordic Ski Instructors through the prestigious Professional Ski Instructors of America.
