Bartlett & Pinkham Notch, NH – Peak Resorts, Inc. recently announced that Kent and Robin Graham have retired from their management positions with Attitash Mountain Resort. Tim Boyd, CEO of Peak Resorts, announced the return of John D. Lowell as the new General Manager of Attitash. He also announced that Josh Boyd will be the General Manager of Wildcat Mountain.

Most recently, Lowell has served as the Director of Lodging at Mount Snow. “John has contributed greatly to the renewed success of Mount Snow,” said Tim Boyd. “John was able to take on the challenges at Mount Snow, identify improvements and produce meaningful change.” Prior to his most recent position at Mount Snow, Lowell had been the General Manager of the Attitash Grand Summit Hotel for several years and also served as the ski area’s General Manager, from August 2006 to April 2007 prior to Peak Resorts acquiring Attitash from The American Skiing Company. “I am very excited to be back at Attitash for the opportunity to work with the great team here and catch up with many of our guests, pass holders, and the greater Mount Washington Valley community,” said Lowell, a native of nearby Bridgton, Maine.

“Wildcat Mountain is the newest acquisition for Peak Resorts, and I have asked Josh Boyd to manage the daily operations at this ski area,” said Tim Boyd. “Josh was heavily involved with operations this past season, and he and his wife Ashley are now full time residents of the Mount Washington Valley.” Josh Boyd has been an effective contributor to the growth of Peak Resorts through his involvement in major snowmaking improvements and installation projects at Attitash and Mount Snow, the company’s freestyle terrain movement, and rental delivery programs.
