PARK CITY, Utah (AP) -- Thousands of people have applied for jobs at the aspiring five-star St. Regis Deer Crest Resort on Deer Valley's ski slopes.
The owners say they're hiring as many as 300 people for service, transportation and managerial jobs.
The resort says it has received 2,000 online applications and another 400 during a job fair last month in Park City.
The St. Regis will open Nov. 5. It's signature feature is a funicular railway that lifts guests from the base of the Park City ski area.
The owner, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc., says it spent $325 million on the resort complex, which includes 181 guest rooms, 67 condo-suites and 26 residences.
