Hopefully, this is a move in the right direction as the GM of Vail owned Attitash, NH is replaced as reported by the Conway Daily Sun:
Attitash Mountain Resort General Manager Greg Gavrilets is resigning, effective Jan. 17.
A statement shared with the Sun that Vail Resorts, corporate owner of Attitash, released to employees, said: “We thank Greg for all he has contributed to our resort and wish him every success in the future.
Gavrilets, Vail said, “will continue to lead Attitash until his departure Jan. 17, after which Deirdre Riley will assume interim day-to-day leadership at the resort with support from (Northeast Regional Director) Bobby Murphy while we work to backfill the position. During this transition, the operation of the resort will remain business as usual.”
A call placed to Gavrielts’ extension at Attitash on Tuesday afternoon was not returned as of press time. A receptionist said he was out of the building and directed calls to Adam White, senior manager of resort communications, Northeast Region, Vail Resorts.
According to White, Gavrilets’ replacement is senior manager of mountain operations at Attitash.
Riley’s LinkedIn profile lists the following other positions: senior manager of health and safety at Crested Butte Mountain Resort in Colorado, from 2018-20; lift/zip operations manager, Canyon Resort, Park City, Utah, from 2007-20; and mountain services manager at Stowe Mountain Resort in Stowe, Vt., from 2000-05.
She also earned a bachelor of science degree in industrial and organizational psychology from Southern New Hampshire University in 2019.
According to a story published Dec. 8, 2021, in the Worcester Telegram, “Snow sports: Reborn, rebuilt Attitash Mountain Resort ready for action,” Gavrilets, 33, was appointed at Attitash 14 months ago.
According to Shaun Sutner, ski columnist at the Worcester, Mass., paper, Gavrilets started out as a ski patroller, then moved up to terrain park manager at Ober Gatlinburg resort in his home state of Tennessee. The article stated he went on to serve as general manager at a number of Vail Resorts in the Midwest before coming to Attitash.
Sutner quoted Gavrilets as saying, “It’s no secret to anyone that there’s a lot of deferred maintenance on this mountain.”
