Gothic Store and Visitor Center Manager
Rick first joined us in the summer of 2014 as an Information Specialist with the CB/Mt. CB Chamber of Commerce conducting daily tours of the Gothic town site and welcoming RMBL guests, and summer residents, to the Weldon and Rosalie Weekley Visitor Center and Store. This summer he and his staff will be cheerfully serving up the RMBL message along with tasty treats; one-of-a-kind goods; and travel advice to those on an adventure. Rick grew up in Des Moines and has a BBA-Marketing from the University of Iowa. He spent more than 20 years as a VP and COO with Applebee’s International, Inc. and D’Amico & Partners, Inc. until he, and his wife Susan, moved to Grand Junction, Colorado from Minneapolis in 2002. He joined the Crested Butte Mountain Resort Ski & Ride School as an Adult Alpine Instructor in 2004, after purchasing a condo in Skyland, where he continues to pursue his lifelong passion for teaching, coaching, and sliding on snow. If you can’t find Rick at the Gothic Store this summer, you may find him on his bike, or out enjoying the “high alpine” around Crested Butte.
