AP Podcast – Episode 88: Dan Edwards talks about culture, leadership, and the transition from a theme park to a ski resort


Dan Edwards is the Director of Summer Operations at Breckenridge Ski Resort in Colorado. With Dan’s background in theme parks, it’s easy to make comparisons between the ski industry and theme parks… they’re just open opposite seasons, right?  Not so fast.  While both industries stress safety and outstanding guest experiences, Dan shares some of the nuance differences that may not be obvious to the untrained observer.
