Introducing our new Operations Manager!


I am pleased to announce that we have hired Leslie Brodhead as the  GMNC's first formal Operations Manager.

Some of you may have met her at the Winterstart. (She also did some racing and volunteering last year.)

Leslie moved to Palisade about a year ago. She comes to us with extensive management experience. She previously worked at two Nordic ski resorts in California--Northstar and Royal Gorge--and she has ample experience overseeing nordic ski area operations. She has also worked as a park ranger with the National Park Service where she coordinated volunteers and was in charge of employee scheduling.

She has excellent people skills and management experience. As the hiring committee worked on the Operations Manager job description, it became clear to us that this is not a grooming job, but a communications, administration and management position, so those were skills we sought in our search.Leslie's husband works at the National Weather Service, so she also has an inside line on weather info.

Leslie wants your feedback. Do you have a suggestion? A comment on trail conditions? Question about grooming or trail conditions?

Contact her at:

President, Grand Mesa Nordic Council
