Hagerty named Buttermilk manager

Aspen Times Staff Report
Aspen, CO Colorado

ASPEN ” Kevin Hagerty was named the Buttermilk mountain manager by the Aspen Skiing Co. Wednesday.

Hagerty began his ski industry career at Aspen Highlands in 1989. He worked in a variety of positions over 20 years, from a master mechanic in chairlift maintenance to patrol supervisor and summer trails director.

“Kevin knows mountain operations inside and out,” said Rich Burkley, Skico vice president mountain operations. “We are confident that Buttermilk is in excellent hands.”

Hagerty also has broad community ties. He has served as the Exalted Ruler of the Aspen Elks and he is a senior member of Mountain Rescue Aspen.

Hagerty takes over for Hans Hohl, who resigned this fall.

The Skico also said that Doug Mackenzie will remain the mountain manager at Aspen Highlands for 2008-09, contrary to a prior comment by company spokesman Jeff Hanle. Mackenzie postponed retirement to take the mountain manager position last season, and now the Skico veteran is staying put.

Peter King remains the mountain manager at Aspen Mountain and Steve Sewell is calling the shots at Snowmass.
