Ani will be responsible for both private and corporate events at Edson Hill, offering a superior experience for our new and returning guests.
With an extensive background in the ski industry, including managing and executing the 2002 Winter Olympics and experience working with the US Ski Team, Drew was a clear choice to become Assistant General Manager at Edson Hill.

In that capacity, Drew managed all winter/ summer trails operations including cross country skiing, maintenance, summer & winter trail events, mountain biking, outdoor center, programs, special activities and retail. In addition, he maintains a current post as an Instructor at the Army Mountain Warfare School for the Vermont Army National Guard.
Drew will be involved in all aspects of our 23 room luxury boutique hotel, and serve as director of both operations and human resources.
Drew is looking forward to using his background and experience to develop a long-term strategic plan for events at Edson Hill, ensure day-to-day operations run smoothly, and to spearhead the revival of the Edson Hill Nordic Ski Center, opening for the upcoming winter 2017-18 season.
