Summit Daily/Kristin Skvorc One of Copper Mountain's executive assistant's Suzy Randolph is hard at work Tuesday at her desk. "The most important part of my life (has been) spent here," Randolph said.

Longtime local Suzy Randolph may not be originally from the High Country, but her life is rooted in Summit County. With husband, Scott, heading up the Copper Mountain Fire Department as fire chief and her work with the resort spanning more than two decades, Suzy Randolph loves living here. Randolph is the assistant to Steve Paccagnan, general manager of Copper Mountain Resort, and has been with the resort since 1978.”I never thought I would end up being in this position,” she said. “I feel like my life began at Copper Mountain. It’s where I met my husband.”

She and her husband bought their house at Copper Mountain in 1990, but she said they’ve just “always been here.”What do you like best about your job?”The people. The people I work with, for, meet. I’ve got the best job in the world.”

What do you do when you’re not working?”Play golf. Plus, we’ve got a brand new grandbaby who turns a year next Sunday. There is so much to do in Summit County. Summer is the best part of living here. We love winter too, but summer’s what keeps you here.”

What’s something people would be surprised to know about you?”That I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. I just read in a commencement address … that you should stay hungry and stay foolish. That’s what inspires the most creative thought, when you don’t take yourself too seriously.”If you could have any other job, what would it be? “Assistant to Condoleezza Rice. I just admire her.”
