Employee Perks

Pahaska's Old Lodge is Buffalo Bill's 1904 "Gem of the Rockies", built in
the heart of our nation's first National Forest, next to our nation's first
National Park, and on both sides are America's two largest wilderness areas
in the lower 48 states! This part of the Rocky Mountain West is full of the
history of Jim Bridger, John Colter and the like.  The best part is that we
try to give you 2 days off in a row so you can take advantage of this great
country. We also have an employee TV and rec room, limited satellite
internet access but no cellular phone service.
