What you need to know about COVID-19: September 18, 2020
Marble Mountain has been operating without a general manager since October and the provincial government says the position will not be filled.
The previous general manager, Melissa Dwyer, was laid off in the fall.
When asked Monday if Dwyer would be replaced, Tourism, Culture, Industry and Innovation Minister Christopher Mitchelmore said she would not.
“The decisions to close Tuesdays and lay off the general manager was around long-term sustainability of hill,” said the minister, who was in Corner Brook Monday.
Mitchelmore said Tony Abbott, who is the ski resort’s chief operating officer, other members of Marble Mountain’s on-site administration team and the Marble Mountain Development Corporation’s board of directors are providing oversight of the resort’s management.
“There’s no plan to replace the general manager,” he added. “It’s a cost-saving measure … We have lots of management onsite in terms of the structure and the board is there as well. Things are running very well at Marble Mountain.”
