Brundage Mountain Taps Ski Industry Veterans for Two Key Director Positions
Brundage Mountain Resort is excited to welcome two experienced ski industry professionals to its management team. Both new directors bring track records of success working at independently owned resorts in the Mountain West.
34-year-old JP Goulet has joined the team as Director of Marketing and Sales. Goulet spent more than a decade directing a wide range of strategic marketing and communication efforts at Utah’s Powder Mountain Resort.
In recent years, his role there expanded to encompass Marketing and Sales plus oversight and management of all guest service focused departments, which included a workforce of 200 team members in the winter.
“I love being a part of an independent ski resort that values a genuine ski experience above all,” says Goulet. “I’m excited to put my knowledge and skills to work to help Brundage Mountain maintain its unique qualities as it grows into the future in a thoughtful and sustainable way.”
Goulet and his wife are excited to experience all the outdoor adventures the McCall area has to offer, from rivers to mountain bike trails and especially winter adventures. “I can’t wait to explore all the lift-accessed, skin-n-ski and backcountry Snowcat terrain at Brundage,” adds Goulet.
50-year-old Chris Malouf joins the Brundage team as Director of Finance. Malouf brings proven leadership abilities and three decades of experience in corporate finance to the position.
Malouf spent four years overseeing accounting and finance efforts at Colorado’s Monarch Mountain Resort where he successfully managed finances, improved processes and managed budgets and accounting staff.
“I’m excited to join the Brundage team. I love working in the ski industry because the ultimate goal is for people to have fun,” says Malouf, who recently relocated to McCall with his wife and two children. “We love the small-town mountain environment and are excited to explore all of the outdoor activities as a family.”
“These are key hires for the future of Brundage Mountain,” says Brundage Mountain Resort General Manager, Ken Rider. “The seasonality of ski resorts make them different to operate than most other businesses, so bringing on proven leaders who have thrived in that unique business environment is a huge win for Brundage Mountain.”
Brundage Mountain Resort embarked on an ambitious 10-Year Improvement Plan starting in 2021 that includes major upgrades to base area and on-mountain facilities, in addition to expanding winter and summer recreational opportunities and building the resort’s first ski-in/ski-out lodging.
