Episode 6 - Kim Mayhew, Solitude

Sometimes you just have to follow your heart. In the early 1980s, Kim Mayhew did just that. When her car blew up, Mayhew and her husband reevaluated their lives in New Hampshire and decided to head west, hopscotching between resorts like ski bums until landing in Utah.

Today, Mayhew is one of the most highly regarded resort leaders in America, serving as president and chief operating officer of Solitude Mountain Resort - one of the gems of the Alterra Mountain Company. Since moving from Deer Valley Resort to Solitude in 2014, Mayhew has literally lived the evolution of the ski industry firsthand.

In this episode of Last Chair, the Ski Utah Podcast, Kim Mayhew shares her story of success with Last Chair host Tom Kelly - a career hallmarked by her relationships with the people around her. She also shares her approach to the challenges presented leading a Cottonwood Canyon resort, as well as her passion for the sport. Check out this week’s episode of Last Chair.
