Vail announces new Mount Snow GM
DOVER - Vail Resorts announced Tuesday that Brian Suhadolc, vice president of mountain operations at Vail Mountain, will be the next general manager of Mount Snow Resort. He will succeed Tracy Bartels - who was recently appointed as vice president of maintenance, planning, and projects - effective Friday, April 1. He will continue in his role at Vail Mountain until a transition plan unfolds later in the spring.
Suhadolc has had a long history in the ski industry, leading operations for Vail Mountain since 2020 and preceded by a progression through multiple leadership roles over 28 years at Park City Mountain. During his time at Park City he played a critical role in executing the $50 million capital project to connect Park City Mountain Resort and Canyons Resort, High Meadow Park, and the Over and Out lift. In his tenure at Vail, he was instrumental in leading the optimization of the recent multi-million dollar snowmaking investment that resulted in the earliest opening in the history of Vail Mountain.
Suhadolc is one of the strongest leaders across Vail Resorts’ mountains, having served as the enterprise operations leader of the Mountain Operations Leadership Team. He also served as the leader of the operational reliability workstream for the lift optimization project to achieve dramatic improvements in lift capacity across the company. He has been a valued member of Vail Mountain Senior Leadership Team and has helped develop countless new leaders throughout his tenure at Vail, Park City, and his enterprise leadership roles.
A New Jersey native, Suhadolc is excited to return to the Northeast with his wife, where skiing began for him in his youth. He and his wife Megan are proud parents of two sons, Evan and Hayden.
