Late last week the Mt. Mansfield Ski Club & Academy Board of Directors announced the appointment of Igor Vanovac to the newly created position of Executive Director of Mt. Mansfield Ski Club & Academy.

Previously separate organizations, the Mount Mansfield Ski Club and the Mount Mansfield Winter Academy came together last spring and the Board of Directors established this new position of Executive Director to lead the Mt. Mansfield Ski Club & Academy. The addition of this position reflects an important structural change to establish clear leadership accountability that will best support the future of the organization and the experience provided for their student-athletes. A Search Committee reviewed a great number of applications from internal and external candidates with varied backgrounds, inclusive of ski industry, education, and general business experience.

Lori Furrer will continue in her role as Academic Director, responsible for leading the Academy. A search will begin immediately to fill the Athletic Director position, which Vanovac previously held.

The Board of Directors is excited for this change, and for the bright future of Mt. Mansfield Ski Club & Academy.

Founded in 1920 in Stowe, Vermont, Mt. Mansfield Ski Club & Academy is one of the oldest ski racing organizations in America. They provide unparalleled academic and athletic programs designed to rigorously prepare student-athletes for college and life, while instilling our community values of integrity, excellence, and a lifelong love of skiing.
