Bill Rock

As we’ve reported Park City Mountain Resort COO Bill Rock will be taking on a new role within Vail Resorts. Returning to run Park City Mountain Resort is a familiar face.

Rock’s brand-new job will be based at company headquarters in Broomfield, Colorado, where he will serve in a regional leadership role. Rock explains that job will have him overseeing the company’s five resorts in Colorado and Utah. He says even though he’ll be based in corporate headquarters he still plans to spend around 90 days on the mountain split between the four Colorado ski areas and Park City.
