Last night The Sheet, along with the rest of Mono County, learned who exactly would be making up Mammoth Mountain's new management team. The much-touted Chief Operating Officer will be taken by Greg Dallas, who had formerly been running the mountain's infrastructure and maintenance programs. Mark Clausen will remain as CFO, and Ron Cohen will be the Chief Administrative Officer. Dallas will be responsible for operations at both Mammoth and June Mountain, which is set to re-open this winter, and several of Mammoth's internal staff will move to June Mountain full-time. According to the Mammoth Times, CEO Rusty Gregory's responsibilities will shift to focus "exclusively on attracting investment capitol." Meanwhile, his staff shift to June has "placed some of our top resources at June."
The rest of the meeting focused on a letter by the county supervisor, Tim Alpers, to the county's DC representatives in support of Mammoth's proposed land trade with the Forest Service. California Congressman Paul Cook recently wrote a letter saying he would hold a bill in support of the land trade until concerns about the future of June Mountain had been alleviated. The Committe for a Viable June Mountain, the group that raised its concerns about June to the congressman, still wants to wait six months to see if Gregory's promises come true.
