Push to The Latest: No


This year’s 10 Under 30 know how to hustle. The staff accountant from A-Basin will crunch numbers, bus tables, shovel walkways and remit 1099s all in the same day. The tramway supervisor at Ober can not only shorten a haul rope and change a circuit card, she also makes snow and sells tickets. These men and women are happy to get their hands dirty, keep a sharp ear to the ground, and do their work with a smile.

True snowsports enthusiasts, this year’s group are ideal industry ambassadors. They implement new employee training and wellness initiatives, build tools to make their peers’ jobs easier, know the value of good customer service, and really enjoy what they do.

The 10 come from the south and the north, the Rockies and the Green Mountains. They work at big resorts and little hills and for major industry players and independent operators. Regardless of where they call home, these smart, dedicated professionals are always looking for ways to help the resorts and industry they love grow and thrive.
