Amanda Hrabik

Greeting’s ya’ll! My name is Amanda Hrabik and I am the Guest Relations Manager here at The Ridge Tahoe. I was feeling adventurous last year and decided to move out to Tahoe all the way from the east coast out of Westminster, Maryland. I was first hired as the supervisor at the spa and recreation department and moved up to the position I am currently in as the Guest Relations Manager. Everyone has been so welcoming in showing me the ropes including many of the staff and the local owners. My position is a blend of many different tasks and duties, with my main responsibility to help and assist the guests and owners. In the short time I have been here I have learned so much about guests services and the hospitality industry.

Not only do I enjoy helping guest at the resort but I also enjoy helping people in and around the community.  I decided to join and lead The Ridge Eagles here at work and they have been keeping me very busy ever since. The Ridge Eagles is an organization that was established over twenty years ago by Ridge Tahoe employees. The group consists of associates and volunteers whom coordinate events and fundraisers to raise money and donate to local charities and nonprofit organizations in the local area of Douglas County. The name EAGLES actually stands for: Empowered, Associates, Generating, Leadership, Experience and Service. Our next upcoming event is a Summer Family Picnic on Wednesday, July 25th. We will be having food, games, sack races, hula-hoop contests, raffles, face painting and much more. It will be a fun event for the whole family to enjoy!

For more information about The Ridge Eagles or if you are interested in making a donation, contact me at The Ridge Tahoe 775-588-3553.
