Meet The Guy Who Decides When The Snow Guns Get Firing

Next Up

While Wildcat didn't use the recent October cold snap to open the slopes for eastern skiers & riders begging to snap some icy turns and get some early season base gouges, they were one of only a few to fire up their snowguns and get a jump on the ski season.

Wintry Mix–a new podcast from Ski The East lifer and Market Basket crisis hijinx-er Alex Kaufman–has set out this fall to explore the east coast ski community in podcast format, including profiles on bringing the Philly to Killington and making a life out of skiing only Snowflex. This time around, Kaufman profiled Wildcat General Manager Brian Heon, who made the call to fire the guns up this fall and also showed up for his first snowmaking job interview in a tie and jacket, and was interviewed by his future wife, who was in Carhartts.
