SilverStar Mountain Resort

 

With the national conversation hyper-focused on race in America over the past few weeks, the conversation about the ski industry’s role in bringing about real, measurable change has also begun. Although steps are being taken by major players in the industry, many say there is still a lot of work to be done.

 

In an email sent out to Vail Corp employees on June 2, CEO Robert Katz addressed the issue head-on, stating that they are, bluntly, “part of the problem.”

Park City Mountain’s Chief Operating Officer Mike Goar is back in Park City after a few years working at different resorts in Vails system. Goar was the general manager of the Canyons Resort from 2007 to 2015.

Park City Mountain Resort is open for the season as of today. Skiers can look forward to two renovated restaurants alongside early season skiing.

Park City Mountain COO Bill Rock considers the late November opening of the resort a success.

“It’s a pretty big opening actually considering the time of the year that we’re in. Like I said, the snow service is really going to be great. We’ve had good snow making temperatures, we’ll be able to make good, big wide trails. Good way to kick off the year.”

The Dew Tour Mountain Championships in Breckenridge, Colorado last weekend were the first Olympic qualifiers this year for free-ski and snowboard athletes hoping to advance to the Sochi Games. Rick Brough has more.
