Now in its 22ndyear, the SAMMY Leadership Awards honor individuals who, at mid-career, demonstrate the innovation, leadership, dedication, professionalism, and creativity to lead the mountain resort industry into the future. What makes this award truly special is that the candidates are nominated by you, their industry peers. Written nominations should detail what makes the nominee stand out as a leader who demonstrates these qualities.

"We look forward to honoring outstanding individuals who have earned the respect and admiration of their employees, peers, bosses, and the industry as a whole," said SAM publisher Olivia Rowan. “So many past SAMMY winners continue to do great things, and I’m sure this year’s class will be no different.”
