The Wedgewood Lodge Team

Breckenridge lodging staff 

General Manager – Andee Skinner

Andee SugareeI came to Breckenridge in 1998 in search of a small town to call home after a life lived bouncing around the globe as a Navy brat. Following nearly ten years working for a locally owned Summit County title company and serving on my homeowners’ association board, I took a job in town managing homeowners associations for a large property management company. I was so pleased to join the Wedgewood Lodge family in March 2015.

Although I live “over the Pass” in Fairplay, I think I have the best of both worlds with dual citizenship in a small mountain town with mostly full-time year-round residents and in a small mountain town with a world-class ski resort and amazing visitors from the world over. You will undoubtedly meet my retired service dog, Sugaree, when you visit our front desk and may see me shredding it in a bi-ski on the mountain. In my free time, I live for live music and travel as much as possible to see the bands I love.

Reservations Guru – Kate Jones

Reservations Guru, Breckenridge CO hotel.My first 18 years of life were spent in Newport Beach, California just minutes from the Pacific Ocean. Then Dallas, TX became my home while I studied Art History & Archaeology at Southern Methodist University. After graduation in 2010 I immediately moved to Colorado and it’s been my home ever since. In my free time I can be found skiing, hiking, reading and seeing live music (seriously… go to Red Rocks!). I also enjoy going on adventures with my Love, and spending time with my furry feline friend, Irie. I am addicted to Jeopardy!… whatup Trebek.

Guest Services Manager – Brad Ragan

Guest Services Manager, Breckenridge hotelHailing from the great state of Minnesota (dontcha know), I have tried to move away from Breckenridge multiple times, but have always been drawn back! First taking a semester off from Iowa State University, I moved out to Breckenridge “just for one season.” After graduating, I did everything I could to get back as soon as possible. My wife, 2 dogs, 2 cats and 3 goldfish love Colorado, but we do our best to travel as much as possible. We have made it to 15 different countries in the last eight years, bringing my total to 21. As Susan Sontag said, “I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.” We also love to travel around Colorado and the country to see live music, with Phish being our favorite band. When in Summit county, I love to take advantage of our great local golf courses and spend every day I can playing before the snow flies once again! When it does, you’ll find me at the top of 6 chair with my snowboard strapped on ready to go.

Brad can be contacted at (800) 521-2458 x 430 or bragan@tonti.com.


Maintenance Technician – Alex Hart

Originally from upstate New York, Alex Hart moved to Breckenridge in 2014 to work for the mountain and ski as much as possible. Eventually he decided although the mountain life was fun he would rather follow his passion and do handy work. He was hired in maintenance at Wedgewood Lodge in 2017. Alex still likes to ski as much as possible as well as fly fish and mountain bike.
