Push to The Latest: No


Listen and Learn. PodSAM is launching with the Summit Series, a leadership development program we kicked off in November of 2017. Sit back and listen to the movers and shakers of the industry share their stories with ten up and comers (learn about them here) about what they’ve learned through the years and how they learned it.

We'll be hearing from John Rice, general manager of Sierra-at-Tahoe, Blaise Carrig, senior advisor of Vail Resorts Mountain Division, Jody Churich, executive vice president at POWDR Corp/Woodward, Bill Jensen, CEO at Telluride Mountain Resort, Barb Green, president of Blue Mountain, and Kris Blomback, GM at Pats Peak.

These conversations, moderated by Paul Thallner of High Peaks Group, provide a rare deep dive inside the minds of some of the most experienced players in ski area operation. Each podcast covers a different topic including management skills, problem solving techniques, finance and revenue management, capital planning, risk management, and more.

The launch of PodSAM is in partnership with Alex Kaufman of the Wintry Mix Podcast. Theme music is by Breakmaster Cynlinder. Share this with a colleague, subscribe where you get pods, and thanks for tuning in.
