Okemo Mountain Resort Names New Ski School Director

Thu, 07/18/2002 - 8:00pm -- tim

Tim and Diane Mueller, owners of Okemo Mountain Resort are pleased to announce that Dan Bergeron has been named as the new Director of the Cutting Edge Learning Center. As the new director, Dan will oversee a staff of over 250 professional ski and snowboard instructors and all of Okemo's award-winning Learning Center programs. Dan replaces Marty Harrison, who retired in April of 2002 and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to his new position.
Dan is no stranger to the ski industry or Okemo. In 1985 he began instructing at Okemo's sister resort, Mount Sunapee (NH) and came to Okemo in 1991 as a full time instructor. Dan quickly moved up in "the ranks" and has most recently served as the Assistant Ski School Director and Learning Center Manager.
"Dan has been a contributing element in the growth of Okemo's award-winning Learning Center programs," commented Diane Mueller, co-owner
of Okemo. "He reinforces our company's vision and values and has sought to build a staff of professionals who truly enjoy teaching and place the emphasis on fostering a caring attitude, excellent communication skills and enthusiasm."
Dan's credentials are just as impressive as his ability as an instructor. He is a member of the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA) and received his Level 3 Certification in 1991. He formerly served on the PSIA Snowsports Management Committee and is a Divisional Clinic
Leader.
"Dan is a natural for the position", added Bruce Schmidt, Okemo's Director of Operations. "He is highly respected and regarded and looks to make some positive changes to enhance the growth and overall learning experience at Okemo."
During the off-season, Dan is the owner of djb design, a landscape architecture and consultation firm specializing in residential design projects located in Henniker, NH.
