Bridgton, ME (PRWEB) February 07, 2012
Rock has stood at Shawnee Peak’s helm for 30 years since his date of hire from Okemo Resort in Vermont in the fall of 1982. During his time Rock has seen the Mountain change ownership three times. In 1983 he was present when a pre-dawn fire destroyed the Main Base Lodge. He has overseen the installation of four new lifts, the introduction of snowmaking and the transition to energy efficient snowmaking technology. Through his tenure lights have been placed on 70% of the mountain for night skiing and slope side condos have been built at the base area.
Ed Rocks commitment to Shawnee Peak and his staff is unparalleled. Having served on numerous boards recently including the Executive Committee of Ski Maine, and the Economic Development Council of Bridgton Maine, Rock is a public servant, committed to the growth of winter sports and his community. “I have been truly lucky to have Ed Rock as an operating partner and friend all these years. He epitomizes all the ski industry stands for, long hours, dedication, customer first focus and fun. I look forward to continuing to work with Ed as we work to improve our resort." says Chet Homer Shawnee Peak Owner.
There will be a celebration for Ed Rock open to family, pass holders, employees and friends from 5-7pm at Blizzards Pub once the mountain closes on Sunday February 12th.
