We are proud to welcome PSIA-AASI National Team member Eric Lipton to our team. Eric will be joining SNOW as the Managing Director for the Conversion & Growth Partner Program business and will take an active leadership role in the management and future direction of the program for our partner resorts.
Eric joins the SNOW Operating team, bringing with him valuable experience both from within the ski industry and beyond. As a current 3-term member of the PSIA-AASI National Alpine team, Eric has traveled throughout North America and internationally, as his wisdom and expertise pertaining to learning and teaching snow sports is highly sought after by coaches, instructors, U.S. Ski Team athletes, and the general public. Equally important, are Eric’s ideas and successes in working with snow sports professionals to create more meaningful connections with first-time skiers and riders. For the past 3 seasons, Eric has worked with SNOW Operating, helping them to develop their educational content and on-snow training, focusing on those important guest-focused skills. Additionally, Eric comes to SNOW with a background and education in business management, having owned and operated a multi-faceted retail operation outside the ski industry.
“I am very excited to join the SNOW Operating team, and build upon the great work this company has been doing to help resorts attract and retain our most precious guests – the first-time participants. I have been watching this company since its inception – the questions they’ve been asking, and the long-held belief systems they have been challenging. This is a dynamite team with an important mission of turning first-timers into life-timers and there is no challenge within our industry that I would rather be working on.” – Eric Lipton, SNOW Operating Conversion & Growth Program, Managing Director
“Eric is one of the most highly respected snow sports professionals in our industry. It has been great getting to know him better and to work with him on the development of our education content these past few years. With his unique blend of skills and experience, I have no doubt that Eric will help bring SNOW and our partner resorts to new heights in improving the guest experience and helping to grow our industry.” added Joe Hession, SNOW Operating CEO.
Welcome to the team Eric!
