Gold star GM leaves Silver Star

One of Canada’s top winter destinations, Silver Star Mountain Resort, has said good bye to its long standing General Manager Michael Sherwood who resigned earlier this week.

For 12 years, Sherwood has been at the helm of the resort, leading the management team and working with its owner and CEO.
“We are very sad to see Michael go,” says Ian Grant, CEO of Silver Star Mountain Resort.

“Michael’s business acumen and leadership led to the creation of an incredible management team comprised of some of the ski industry’s most talented people. His stewardship over the last 5 years in particular helped the resort navigate the rough economic waters of the post 2008 world.”
Under Sherwood’s tutelage Silver Star Mountain Resort saw many changes including the introduction of the innovative ‘My1Pass’ program where guests may alpine ski, Nordic ski, skate, tube and snowshoe, all on one ticket. 

He also led the development of summer activities in the resort. Silver Star is now recognized as one of the leading destinations for mountain biking in Canada and attracts visitors from all over the world.  
Silver Star will immediately begin an executive search to replace Sherwood.
“It’s time for new challenges and while my time has ended at Silver Star, my passion and love for the resort has not,’ says Michael Sherwood.

“We accomplished a lot in a relatively short time and it’s an incredible ski and summer resort that attracts new loyalists every day. But as much as I love the resort, it was the people at Silver Star that really made my time there so memorable. The expertise, knowledge, and support of such a great staff made my job easier. People make the difference in organizations and Silver Star has exceptional people.”
