Park City Mountain Resort Names Jeremy Cooper as New Terrain Park Manager
Park City, Utah (November 11, 2009) – Park City Mountain Resort is pleased to announce Jeremy Cooper as the Resort’s new Terrain Park Manager, effective immediately.
“Park City Mountain Resort is committed to maintaining a leadership position in the action sports world,” said Jenni Smith, vice president of Resort Administration for Park City Mountain Resort. “We believe that Jeremy’s experience and passion will us allow us to continue to push our progression within the industry.”
Cooper began his career as a park builder at Mammoth Mountain in 2002 and became park manager at June Mountain in 2005. Under his management, June's parks were ranked among the top in the country by several industry publications. In his new position at Park City Mountain Resort, Cooper will oversee the design, maintenance and construction of the Resort’s four terrain parks and of the Eagle Superpipe. He will also be responsible for managing the Park City All-Star team and will serve as the voice of Park City Mountain Resort in action sports forums and social networks.
“I’ve always kept an eye on what Park City Mountain Resort is doing and I am very excited to now be a part of this progressive team,” said Cooper. “I look forward to building upon the Resort’s reputation and pushing the limits of snowboarding and freestyle skiing.”
Cooper comes to the resort following the departure of Director of Action Sports Marketing, Jim Mangan. Mangan was successful in positioning Park City Mountain Resort as one of the most recognized action sports resorts in the world. He created a world-class team of athletes, with the Park City All-Stars, and designed terrain parks that were named the best parks in the country by several industry publications. During his tenure at Park City Mountain Resort, Mangan directed and produced two action sports films, “City. Park City.” and “I Ride Park City”, which featured several of the Park City All-Stars. Mangan is moving on to pursue a career in film.
"We are grateful for the leadership and direction that Jim provided during his seven years at the Resort and we wish him the best of luck in his new endeavor," said Smith.
