13. Ski Inc.: My journey through four decades in the ski-resort business, from the founding entrepreneurs to mega-companies
Author: by Chris Diamond
Ski Diamond Publishing
“You can’t make this stuff up.” Chris Diamond heard that refrain regularly during his 44-year career in the ski-resort industry, when he guided major ski resorts in Vermont and Colorado and was intimately involved in the most significant issues shaping the sport.
So when he finally retired from his position as the president and COO of the Steamboat Ski & Resort Corp. In 2015, he decided to write it all down.Ski Inc. Is unlike any book ever published on skiing, providing a candid and colorful behind-the-scenes view of what it takes to manage a successful resort in a constantly changing resort industry.
Armed with English degrees from Middlebury and UMass, and fresh off a tour as a lieutenant in the Vietnam War, the author did not set out to build a career in the ski business. But in 1972, he wound up at Killington Ski Area, where he came under the wing of resort founder and visionary Preston Leete Smith and legendary marketer Foster T.Chandler.
Killington at the time was setting the pace in everything from snowmaking to recruiting new skiers, and Diamond was a quick learner. What followed was his total immersion in the resort industry, a business that evolved from simply getting skiers up the mountain into a multi-faceted, vertically integrated service industry.
