TELLURIDE – As Telluride Ski Resort prepares for the 2013-14 ski season, some new faces will be stepping in to help lead this top ranked resort of North America. After an in-depth search for professionals to oversee several departments and the direction of the company, Telluride Ski and Golf is welcoming four seasoned veterans in the industry to Telluride.
Greg Pack will be joining Telluride Ski and Golf team as President and General Manager. Pack, a Colorado native, has spent the last six years of his career as the president/general manager of Moonlight Basin Resort in Montana. His primary responsibilities at Telluride will be to oversee operations and planning of ski, lodging, culinary service, marketing, guest services, spa and golf operations. Prior to his stint at Moonlight Basin, Pack worked for Intrawest as the Vice President and Managing Director of Mountain Creek Resort and Vail Resorts at Keystone and Breckenridge holding numerous positions including Mountain Manager and Director of Recreation. Pack, according to a Telski press release issued Wednesday, has a strong background in customer service and has overseen all areas of ski area development and operations throughout his career.
Serving on a number of boards including Red Cross, Economic Development Partnership, Chamber of Commerce, Airline Guarantee and Resort Master associations, Pack has a well-rounded professional history. He brings with him his wife of 19 years, Sharon and their two daughters Alyssa and Jessica. The family has a passion for the outdoors with a love for skiing, snowshoeing, rafting and other activities. Telluride is a great fit for the family and they are looking forward to becoming part of the community. Pack will begin Nov. 19.
Brad Larsen joined the team as the Vice President of Sales and Marketing on Wednesday. Larsen was most recently the vice president of sales and marketing for Sugarloaf where he led his team to achieve the NSAA Best Overall Marketing Campaign. Honed skills in the industry developed through his Sales and Marketing positions in Tahoe, Welch Village and Snowshoe.
Larsen has extensive experience in all aspects of sales and marketing and will add his enthusiasm, energy and creativity to an already great team here in Telluride. Larsen grew up in Wisconsin and is an avid outdoorsman with a huge love for college football. His wife Sara and their two children Remy and Harlow have relocated to Telluride from Maine.
Robert Stenhammer will be the new vice president of hospitality for Telluride Ski and Golf. During his nearly 20 years of extensive resort hospitality experience, Stenhammer has overseen the management of over 3,000 vacation rental properties, 40 homeowner associations, hotels, retail outlets, food and beverage, real estate and resort operations.
He has previously worked for Vail Resorts, Intrawest, Wyndham Worldwide and is relocating from Hilton Head Island, S.C. where he served as a Director of the Hilton Head Chamber and Tourism Office Board and Chairman of the Town’s Accommodation Tax Committee. Stenhammer holds a BA in business from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota and a MBA in Hospitality & Tourism from the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada. Relocating with his wife, Heidi, and daughters Samantha and Mackenna, Stenhammer will begin on Dec. 2.
Scott Clements has recently come on board as the Director of Ski Patrol and Risk Management from Durango where he held that same title since 2003 at Durango Mountain Resort. Clements started his career with the Forest Service and transitioned into the ski industry 28 years ago as a Ski Patroller and has been a Ski Patrol Director for 20 years.
His experience in patrol, leadership and risk management will be a great asset to our team. Clements is working directly with Jason Rogers, Assistant Patrol Director, and Janice Todd, Risk Manager, to improve guest and employee safety throughout all aspects of the mountain. It has been a pleasure welcoming Scott to the team as he began work October 21. His wife, Kari, and two of three sons, Zachary and Michael, will be joining Scott here in Telluride soon while their older son Keegan attends the University of Oregon.
Telluride Ski and Golf looks forward to working with these industry leaders as the start of the season rapidly approaches.
