Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) recently announced that it has appointed Nick Herrin as the new Mountain Schools Director, managing all aspects of the ski and snowboard schools.
Nick spent nine years at Big Sky, Montana as a ski instructor and working through the ranks as a Training Supervisor and as Group Sales Manager in the summers. A member of the PSIA National Team and most recently coming from Telluride Ski Resort, where he was Executive Director of the Ski School, Nick has extensive experience in the ski resort industry.
“I began teaching at age 14 and caught the ‘ski industry bug’ at Snoqualmie in Washington.” Since then, Nick dedicated himself to the profession.
“We are excited about Nick coming to CBMR bringing a new perspective from his background,” says Ethan Mueller, Director of Operations at CBMR. “Nick is joining us at a dynamic time for the organization and brings a great perspective to this integral part of our mountain team.”
“I’m really looking forward to joining the company and becoming part of the community. I can’t think of a better place to be in all four seasons.” says Herrin.
Nick will be starting in his role with the company beginning August 4th and coincides with a number of improvements to Kids World.
This season, the Kids’ World ski school will see a completely new concept “Kids Base Camp” and see the greatest physical transformation. According to CBMR, “The new Kids Base Camp will be a new an exciting themed program that will intrigue and engage kids through exploration and adventure both on and off the mountain.”
The current building will be taken down to the “studs” and completely redesigned. From a new entrance to remodeled kid friendly bathrooms and play areas, the entire space will be completely revamped. Not only will the space be designed with the kids in mind, it will be easier and quicker for the little ones to get into the flow and let mom and dad “hit the slopes”.
