Sherwood leaves Silver Star management
There has been a major shift in leadership at Silver Star Mountain Resort.
The resort announced Wednesday that Michael Sherwood has resigned as general manager after 12 years.
"It’s time for new challenges and while my time has ended at Silver Star, my passion and love for the resort has not," said Sherwood,
“We accomplished a lot in a relatively short time and it’s an incredible ski and summer resort that attracts new loyalists every day. But as much as I love the resort, it was the people at Silver Star that really made my time there so memorable. The expertise, knowledge, and support of such a great staff made my job easier."
Under Sherwood’s guidance, the resort experienced many changes including the introduction of the My1Pass program where guests may alpine ski, nordic ski, skate, tube and snowshoe all with one ticket. He also led the development of summer activities.
“We are very sad to see Michael go,” said Ian Grant, Silver Star Mountain Resort chief executive officer.
“Michael’s business acumen and leadership led to the creation of an incredible management team comprised of some of the ski industry’s most talented people. His stewardship over the last 5 years in particular helped the resort navigate the rough economic waters of the post 2008 world.”
Silver Star will immediately begin a search to replace Sherwood.
