The Host/Hostess is responsible for ensuring that all resort guests have the highest quality food and beverage dining experience possible while assisting in the creation of a profitable department that is environmentally responsible. This Colorado steakhouse is located in an original, working ranch house, nestled in a pristine mountain valley with breathtaking seasonal views of snow-capped mountains or lush green fairways of the Keystone Ranch Golf Course.

This position follows the brand standards from the beginning of the service cycle through the entire dining process and is professional and gracious while enhancing the dining experience through outstanding service skills.  The host/hostess is often the first impression a restaurant can make on its guests - welcoming guests to the restaurant and getting them seated.

  • Providing exceptional service to all guests while maintaining all brand standards. 
  • Assisting teammates/co-workers in general tasks to ensure that each guest has the best possible experience
  • Seating guests, monitoring the flow of the dining room, offering support to servers, and acknowledging departing guests with a kind remark

  • Assist the team in creating a profitable department that is environmentally responsible.



  • Must have excellent verbal communication skills in English
  • Professional appearance
  • Able to stand for long periods of time up to 4 hours
  • Flexible schedule including willingness to work weekends and holidays
  • Previous guest service experience - preferred
  • Previous host/hostess or restaurant POS experience – preferred

We’re looking for team members who are passionate about their work and the world around them, who take pride in ensuring our guests receive the best possible service and who bring a sense of self and fun to all they do. Life at 9,280 feet in the sky is a little different. With our crisp Rocky Mountain air and boundless options for adventure and exploration, you can join a community who loves where they live and loves what they do. Keystone will be your home away from home; a place where friendliness, an eye for detail and unmatched guest service is the foundation of our Culture. Come join our team – where A Mountain of Possibilities awaits.
