Taos Ski Valley announced Thursday that resort industry veteran David Norden has been appointed chief executive officer and will begin work July 25.
“Taos Ski Valley is evolving into a multi-season resort destination, and as such the executive responsibilities are expanding,” said Taos Ski Valley board member Peter Talty. “David brings superb industry expertise to the ski valley, which will be critical as we prepare for the launch of The Blake hotel this winter and expand our on-mountain opportunities.”
Norden will oversee all existing Taos Ski Valley resort operations including The Blake, a new slopeside hotel, which is slated to open this winter. Current CEO Gordon Briner will transition to chief operating officer and oversee the ski valley’s core revenue departments including ticketing, the snow sports school, food and beverage, retail and rentals. He will also play a role in planning expanded summer programming that will develop over the next few years.
