Snowmass Tourism hires online marketing coordinator
Snowmass Tourism recently appointed Allie Welsh to the Snowmass Tourism Marketing Department. Welsh joins the team as the new online marketing coordinator, beginning in September.
“Allie’s enthusiasm and drive make her a perfect fit for this role,” said Virginia McNellis, marketing director of Snowmass Tourism in a statement. “She knows and loves Snowmass and has a passion for mountain sports. We are looking forward to seeing her apply that energy to inspire others to visit Snowmass through our website, social media and digital marketing.”
Welsh, a Colorado native, spent four years as a professional halfpipe skier before moving to Carbondale in 2018. Over the course of her skiing career, she competed on the FIS Freestyle World Cup Circuit, at the Dew Tour, and was a U.S. nominated potential delegate for the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang. After retiring from skiing, Welsh turned her attention to marketing and was most recently the marketing coordinator at Challenge Aspen, where she handled marketing strategy, social media, content creation and advertising.
