Virginia’s Wintergreen Resort Appoints Jay Gamble as General Manager

USA, Wintergreen, Virginia. September 24, 2021

Jay Gamble has been named general manager of Wintergreen Resort in Virginia following an extensive search including candidates from across the United States and Canada. Gamble will transition from Ragged Mountain in New Hampshire where he has served as general manager for the past three years. Both resorts are operated by Pacific Group Resorts, Inc. (PGRI).

Gamble is a veteran of the mountain resort industry with 40-years of experience at notable ski resorts including Killington in Vermont, Sunday River in Maine, and Mount Sunapee in New Hampshire. In addition to his mountain operations and financial management background, he has extensive experience with the installation of chair lifts, snowmaking systems, and has served on the board of directors of Ski New Hampshire for the past two decades.

"Wintergreen Resort is a unique and extraordinarily diverse property spread across eleven thousand acres. The four-season nature of the resort and membership component requires a talented leader and Jay Gamble has the years of experience and leadership skills necessary to meet the challenges. With his combined ski and golf management background and Mid-Atlantic ties - Jay is the right person at the right time to take the helm at Wintergreen," said PGRI president and chief executive officer Vern Greco".

Gamble comes to Wintergreen Resort amid ongoing capital expenditures and an upward trajectory driven by the Mission: Affordable season pass program and growth of the membership. With a focus on expanded year-around programming and operational improvements, Gamble is well suited to continue the goal of making Wintergreen one of the top mountain resorts in the Mid-Atlantic.

"Wintergreen is a unique and distinctive resort and having grown up in South Carolina and learned to ski in North Carolina, this is a very special opportunity. I look forward to moving to Virginia and leading Wintergreen's growth in the coming years," noted Gamble.

Architecture & Design: Wellness is Key

Like every other facet of hotel operations, architecture and design firms are adapting their work to ensure the safety and well-being of both guests and staff. New ways to bring Wellness into hotel spaces are being explored and these solutions are taking on many forms. Hotel designs are incorporating more open floor plans, open air spaces, high ceilings, outdoor areas and operable walls into their spaces. Guests no longer want to be packed into tight areas. More "biophilic" elements are also being incorporated, offering guests the sense of being outdoors. Another trend is the reimagining of guest rooms to support remote work capabilities. Some hotels are converting empty guest rooms into office spaces, complete with effective lighting and suitable backgrounds for video conferencing. Dedicated Zoom Rooms are also becoming increasingly popular. The main goal is to provide guests with a positive experience in a space that feels safe and comfortable. These are some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
