Effective immediately:

Mike Solimano has been named the President and General Manager of Killington Resort and Pico Mountain.

Chris joined Killington/Pico Ski Resort Partners, LLC. in 2007 as the president and general manger. In his tenure with our resorts, more than $20 million was invested in resort improvements including the Skye Peak Express Quad, the Roaring Brook Umbrellas Bars and Deck, snowmaking improvements along with removal of the original Peak Lodge and preparation to build Killington’s new Peak facility. Chris’ hard work and dedication in the ski industry will continue in Park City, Utah where he will still work with Killington Resort and Pico Mountain and visit from time to time.

Mike brings many years of experience and broad knowledge to his new role as president and general manager for Killington/Pico Ski Resort Partners, LLC. For the last 12 years, he has served as director of finance and revenue and has been instrumental in achieving the recent on-mountain and guest service improvements at our resorts. Additionally, Mike’s taken on other direct responsibilities in retail sales, ticket and season pass sales and the lodging division. Mike’s previous role also involved him in strategic revenue generating programs relative to other departments at the resort including but not limited to all pre-sold programs and Pico program development.

Mike and his family, wife Cara, son Connor 12 and daughters, Hannah 9 and Lauren 7 are avid skiers and active in the community. Additionally, their children are growing up as participants in the Pico Ski Club racing program. Prior to his association with Killington Mike worked seven years at Deloitte & Touché as Audit Manager and six years at Skis Dynastar as VP of Finance and Operations.

“The Killington/Pico Executive Team has worked together to define our plan for the upcoming season, and I am confident that Mike will continue to pursue the high standards of operations and service that have been established,” stated Chris Nyberg. “Please join me in congratulating Mike on his new role.”
