In February, HoliMont General Manager Dave Riley announced his retirement, after 18 years. The Board of Directors started its search for a new leader and after a few weeks of interviews, they found their man.

Ed Youmans was hired in May and the club members and staff couldn’t be happier. Youmans comes to HoliMont with over 34 years of ski industry experience.

In 1984, Youmans got his start as a lift attendant and hasn’t looked back since. He has held key positions with ski areas in the East and West, most recently as Vice President of Mountain Operations at Purgatory Resort in Durango, Colorado.

With a strong background in ski operations both in the office and on the slopes, Youmans hopes to share his knowledge and mentor the staff at the ‘Mont. “I believe that our staff is our most important resource,” he said. “They need to know they are an important part of the club’s success. Other goals are to streamline our processes, evaluate our offerings and provide products and services with the best value possible for members and guests. The HoliMont board has much to offer and I look forward to working with them and channeling their energy into the organization.”

Please join us in welcoming Ed, his wife Kim and son Edward to the HoliMont family!
