BEND As the final days of last winter’s ski season wound to a close, Powdr Corp. — which runs the Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort — took the dramatic step of firing the majority of the resort’s top management: general manager Matt Janney, along with the directors of marketing, food and beverage services, and operations. The 2007-2008 season saw record snowfall and attendance at ski areas around Oregon — but not at Mt. Bachelor, which experienced a 7% drop in ticket sales.
The firings were intended to do one thing: revamp a resort plagued by maintenance, chairlift and community relations woes. But many of those problems pre-date Janney’s 10-month stint in the driver’s seat. Less than a month afater Janey was fired, Dave Rathbun — the previous director of marketing at Killington Resort — took over as GM. It’s unclear how much much can change before the first snowflakes start falling this winter.
