    Mount Snow Names Erik Barnes As New General Manager
    Long-time Mount Snow Employee to Lead Resort Through Continued Growth and Expansion
    Mount Snow, VT. – October 11, 2017 – After rising through the ranks during the past 31 years, Mount Snow is pleased to announce that it has promoted Erik Barnes to the position of general manager. Barnes will assume the role formerly held by Kelly Pawlak, who recently accepted the position of president and CEO of the National Ski Areas Association.

    “After 31 years at Mount Snow, Erik is more than familiar with all of the ins and outs of running a resort, and we’re thrilled to have him stepping into this role,” said Jesse Boyd, Senior Vice President at Peak Resorts. “We look forward to having Erik guide our resort and its staff as we continue this exciting period of development and growth.”

    Barnes, who originally started at the mountain during the 1986-87, winter season as a ski instructor, has an extensive background in the ski industry with an emphasis in resort and customer service. Since then he has held a variety of roles around the resort, most recently as the director of resort services and director of golf, a position which he has held since 2006. In addition, Barnes is an alpine examiner and alpine educational staff chairperson for the Professional Ski Instructors of America.

    “I’m honored to assume this new role at such an exciting time for our resort,” said Erik Barnes, incoming general manager at Mount Snow. “I have called Mount Snow home for the past 31 years, and look forward to leading this award-winning team during this period of expansion, innovation, and development.”

    Barnes will transition into his new role starting on November 4, 2017."

    Glad they didn't move Brian over from Wildcat. I'm quite happy with the job he's done there. Only real complaint is the failure of the bar to get a decent IPA on draft. If you are reading this Brian, how about Great North IPA to replace the Long Trail Sick Day

    It has been mentioned by others and I several times. They've been making the same deals with their distributors for the past several years, hence why nothing changes. Heather especially would love to see an improvement.

    I love the bar at Wildcat for the staff and patrons/vibe, but it's beer selection is poor for 5 years ago, nevermind 2017.

    Replacing anything Long Trail makes at this point, is generally a good decision.

    There's an example of a micro brew that was ahead of the curve as an early adopter, but has been passed by......well.... pretty much everyone. Their beers are almost universally sub-par with other microbrews.

    Even if you want to make the, "keep it local" argument, well, there are other VT options better than Long Trail.

    Somewhat unrelated but I cannot believe how stupid expensive mount snow is. We usually go to Attitash for a week in March, priced out Mt Snow due my disdain for Attitash and they want over $1000 / night for a two bedroom in the Grand, this does not include tickets. The price is roughly double similar accommodations at Killington, Okemo and Sugarbush; close to five times higher than Attitash for a similar room. Are they really filling the place midweek in March at this price?

    The Grand Summit is ridiculously expensive but area lodging is the cheapest and closest in Southern VT from my experience. Lot's of good hotels/motels under $100 per night that are within walking distance to the hill. The Lodge at Mount Snow is my go-to. Snow Lake Lodge is old as dirt but decent and cheap. At Stratton you can be closer to the skiing with their village but you'll be paying $$ for it. At Okemo you'll find cheaper places but you'll be in the outskirts of Ludlow far from the hill.

    The keep it more local option is what I've been making. Pick NH beers. There are plenty of better options brewed in state to replace Switchback and Long Trail Sick Day. They have Moat Brown and Tuckerman Pale for super local beers, the two VT options, I believe a Sam Adams and Budlight. I'm sure kegs of Smuttynose Finest Kind cost the same as LT. That would be a reasonable upgrade.
