Meet our EpicService Winner Cat Rusovan

Meet our 2017 EpicService winner Cat Rusovan. Some of you may know Cat is from the Gold Coast, loves chocolate and one day aspires to be the next Ice Princess as she absolutely loves figure skating. You may have come across Cat Rusovan over the last couple of months while working with Perisher but for those that have not yet had the pleasure of meeting this great employee we spent a couple of minutes with Cat so you to can know a little more about her. 

  1. What on-mountain activity do you enjoy most? That definitely depends on the day, I love both skiing and snowboarding
  2. What’s your personal motto or verse? To always enjoy what I’m doing and to gain as many different experiences in life as possible.
  3. If you were to host a dinner party and could invite four people, living or in history, who would make the guest list and why? Sasha Cohen (Figure Skater), Hayley Williams (Paramore), Chester Bennington (Linkin Park), Kelsey Wells (Personal Trainer). I would love to have dinner with them as they are amazing people who have inspired me throughout life.
  4. Surprise us: what’s one epic thing that most people don’t know about you? I like to do at least one random act of kindness a day. It can be anything super random but I like seeing people smile.
  5. What is your Experience of a Lifetime? I’d have to say all my past travels overseas. Nothing beats seeing something new and trying something different. 


Do you know someone who has gone above and beyond in their role to provide an Experience of a Lifetime? Why not nominate them for this year’s EpicService Award, Vail Resorts highest level of recognition for service, by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Those who are shortlisted for this prestigious award are invited to attend the Staff Service event in September each year and the winner gets to attend the EpicService recipients’ event the following year in the US with the winners from each company within Vail Resorts.

We have quite a few current employees in the running for this years EpicService award such as Angelo Bordin from our Ski Patrol department who went above and beyond to get a guest and her boys off the mountain and to the medical center after sustaining an injury on the hill. Angelo looked after the injured guest in the medical centre and arranged to get them back to Bullocks Flat to their car then onto their accommodation and made sure they had everything they needed before leaving.

Become familiar with this new road rule and have a conversation with your mates and you could save them a hefty fine and a few demerit points.
