Motorcycle into sunsetI try to avoid writing about specific proceedings at the resort that I work at, but I do think it’s appropriate in this instance, because on July 1st there were two big moves in personnel at Park City Mountain Resort:

  1. The President and GM since 2004, Peter Curtis, announced his retirement after 12 years at PCMR. It was a pleasure to work under “PC” and to listen to his deep knowledge and insight of the ski industry and I wish him endless miles of cruising asphalt on his Harley.
  2. On the same day, Jenni Smith, was promoted to fill Peter’s place. I have a great recollection of interviewing with Jenni when I was hired back in 2003, in her position of HR Manager at that time, and how she obviously shared the passion for winter sports that I have, but also the connection that she had with the resort and so many of the employees.

It’s exciting to see changes at the top of the organization at which you work and it’s all the more exciting when you can see that it’s a great situation for all involved. With the many unique programs that PC put into place like the: Signature Runs, MountainZones, Signature Kids Programs, Personal Mountain Tours and MountainZones to name a few he leaves the resort in a great position to move. With Jenni’s wealth of experience at PCMR, in the community and resort industry, I think that she will easily continue and build upon what we currently have. With that, “Best Wishes, PC” and “Congrats Jenni!”
