Sun Valley Resort Names New Mountain Manager

Sun Valley Resort has a new mountain manager today. Peter Stearns has just replaced long-time resort employee Mike Federko.

“We want to thank Mike for over 30 years of service,” Sun Valley Spokeman Jack Sibbach said in an interview this morning.

Of course, in lovely Sun Valley, 30 years can seem like a five-minute walk in the park. Stearns, who was formerly the assistant mountain manager and director of race operations, has also graced Sun Valley for a long time, signing on in the early 1980s.

According to Sibbach, it’s too early to tell if the new management transition at the resort (which includes Tim Silva as the new general manager) signifies a major change in direction for the ski areas.

“I don’t think there will be any changes overnight,” Sibbach said.

Either way, since it’s in Sun Valley, we’re sure the changes if any will be pretty amazing.
