PERRY LEAV­ING ASPEN SKI­ING TO GUIDE PART­NER­SHIP

The Denver Post - - BUSINESS - — Ja­son Blevins, The Den­ver Post

David Perry, the Cana­dian re­sort boss who headed Colorado Ski Coun­try be­fore join­ing Aspen Ski­ing Co. in 2002, will leave his ex­ec­u­tive post in Aspen to guide the newly formed part­ner­ship that is buy­ing the In­trawest and Mam­moth ski ar­eas.

In his more than 40 years in the re­sort busi­ness, Perry has moved from mar­ket­ing to real es­tate to op­er­a­tions at Canada’s Banff, Whistler and Black­comb ski ar­eas be­fore mov­ing to Colorado in 2000 to head the Ski Coun­try trade group.

Once the deal is fi­nal­ized, Perry will be tak­ing on a con­sult­ing role with the new ven­ture, which will be man­ag­ing the port­fo­lio con­trolled by the new part­ner­ship formed by Aspen Ski­ing Co. and Den­ver’s KSL Part­ners.

From Den­ver, Perry will be guid­ing the man­age­ment of In­trawest’s six re­sorts in Colorado, Ver­mont, Canada and West Vir­ginia, 1,113 acres of land, the 12-lodge CMH he­li­copter ski­ing op­er­a­tions and a real es­tate busi­ness as well as Mam­moth Re­sorts four south­ern Cal­i­for­nia ski ar­eas and Lake Ta­hoe’s Squaw Alpine re­sort.

He spent many years work­ing for In­trawest in Bri­tish Columbia. The newly united re­sort em­pire will ri­val Vail Re­sorts’ North Amer­i­can ski supremacy.

Aspen Ski­ing Co.’s four Roar­ing Fork ski ar­eas are promis­ing to re­main in­de­pen­dent of the new part­ner­ship and Perry’s de­par­ture seems to af­firm that po­si­tion.
