STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Steamboat Ski & Resort Corp. has promoted 12-year industry veteran Jeremy Gard to the position of information technology director, effective immediately.

We look forward to many years ahead of his leadership.”
In his new role, Gard will oversee all technology development, strategic planning and technology partner relationships for the resort and The Steamboat Grand hotel. In addition, he will be responsible for the application portfolio across the organization as well as a team of business analysts who support software and information assets.
