Jackson Hole has record ski season
    Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in western Wyoming tallied a record number of skier visits in the 2013-14 ski season. The resort’s 563,631 skier visits surpasses by 12 percent the previous record set last winter, the resort said in a news release.
  “It is exciting to see everything come together,” said Jerry Blann, president of the resort. “We’ve evolved to a consistently strong collaboration between the Wyoming Office of Tourism, Jackson Hole Travel and Tourism Board, Jackson Hole Chamber, JH Air, central reservations, Teton Village and the business community in general.”

Pioneer named among top employers
    Pioneer Federal Credit Union has been named by the Idaho Business Review as one of the “Top Ten Places to Work in Idaho.” Through a rigorous process of confidential and anonymous surveys, companies are judged on a variety of topics, including compensation and benefits, work environment, company management, employee growth and development, and work-life balance.
    Pioneer was one of the top-scoring workplaces in the “Large Companies” (over 100 employees) category, joining the ranks of T-Mobile and others.
    Established in 1954, Pioneer Federal Credit serves Idaho through 12 branches in various cities.
    Along with the other winners, Pioneer will be recognized at an awards event on Tuesday, April 15, in Boise.

NAMI gets grant from foundation
    The National Alliance on Mental Illness affiliate for the Wood River Valley has received a total of $75,000 ($25,000 for each of the last three years) from the Heart of Gold Fund in the Idaho Community Foundation.
    The funds will go toward the group’s greatest needs, including, but not limited to, opening its first local office in Hailey, where families and those with a diagnosis of mental illness can go to receive support and assistance confidentially.  The office also provides NAMI with a place to hold its weekly support groups and a classroom to train new teachers, mentors and facilitators in its programs.  
    The funds received allowed the organization to contract with two individuals to provide part-time services as an executive director and executive administrator.  NAMI entered into a three-year commitment with the ICF whereby NAMI raised funds to match the first $25,000 installment, and raised an additional $25,000 over and above what was raised in the previous year in order to receive the next two $25,000 installments.  
    To learn more about NAMI, call (208) 309-1987.
