WINDHAM, New York — Windham Mountain announced today that Dan Frank, president of the resort, intends to step down from that position on July 1. After that, Frank will continue in his role as a member of the ownership group and will focus on long-term resort projects.

“After 25 years at Windham Mountain, I’ve decided to break away from my daily involvement here,” said Frank. “I will still be available as a resource to the ownership group and I’m pleased that my day-to-day responsibilities will be left in such capable hands.”

Those hands belong to Tim Woods, general manager of the resort and soon-to-be president. Woods has worked his way through the ranks at Windham Mountain over the past decade, previously serving as Director of Mountain Services and Director of Mountain Operations. Prior to his time at Windham, he worked at State Street Bank in Boston. Woods grew up at his family’s ski area, Woods Valley, so his understanding of the industry runs deep.

“When we purchased Windham Mountain a year and a half ago, I was very eager to have Dan Frank on board to help us through that transition,” said Randy Frankel, managing partner of Windham Mountain Partners, the group that owns Windham Mountain. “It was important to have the involvement of the man responsible for building this place into what it is today. He’s been a tremendous asset and we look forward to his continued counsel as we work to make Windham Mountain the best resort in the Northeast.”
