Tyrol Basin is proud to welcome Josh Faber as the new General Manager and we want you to get to know him! Josh is already familiar with the strong and loyal customer following at Tyrol Basin and is committed to meeting and talking with you all. As he has just arrived, you may not know very much about him. With that in mind, here's the inside scoop on the newest member of the Tyrol Basin family.
Josh grew up in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago and learned how to ski in the Midwest and developed the passion for winter sports that he has today. He first visited Tyrol Basin 15 years ago when they were one of the only resorts that allowed skiers in the terrain park! He (of course!) loves skiing in the winter and mountain biking in the summer. That crossover should not be surprising, because as he says, "It’s not a job, it’s a lifestyle.". It's hard to tell where his passion for skiing ends and his job begins! You'll most likely see him a lot on the slope with his signature sunglasses.
That passion must run in the family, as last year he introduced his young daughter Madalyn skiing for the first time. She was only 18 months old, but the next thing he knew she was off and skiing/gliding where ever gravity took her. He calls it the best day on the slopes of his life, so his passion is clear. He'll work at Tyrol Basin to expand these types of experiences for guests every day.
You may be wondering, what does Josh have planned for Tyrol Basin? He strongly believes in quality snowmaking and pristine grooming, coupled with fun events and entertainment to create an overall enjoyable experience. He's very active on the slopes, so if you see him, make sure to tell him how the snow is feeling and other things you want to see. One of his first orders of business is to improve the beginner skier/boarder experience this season by installing a new surface lift and replacing the existing handle tow. This will provide every beginner an easy way up the slopes and will provide access to more beginner terrain for them to learn on.
His philosophy is clear. "At the end of the day we are providing families, young adults, and kids with an experience they will remember for a lifetime. It provides me a sense of fulfillment and gratification that we can provide a product that so many people can truly enjoy. This keeps me motivated to provide the best product possible." With his background and his vision, the future is bright for Tyrol Basin and the community.
