Re: Aaron Kellet Named Whiteface General Manager

I missed AS's dig about the lift issues.  I've been skiing WF for a long time and have noticed way less lift issues over the past couple years.  

the mega winds we've been hit w/ the last two seasons play a huge role in lift closures and anyone w/ some common sense would understand that.  Common sense is such a limited resource these days...

yeah, the internet somehow disables the the brain from self control. i'm interested in people's opinions, do you think that there would be more civilized discourse on the internet if real names were used? ( you could still keep your cool moniker but just put post name like an academic credential).

Absolutely.  If someone has something worth saying they should be willing to put their real name on it.  Mine has always been disclosed on my own blog and anything else I've published/posted on the web or in print.  It's two clicks away from this post -- click on my signature block below (the saratogaskier link), then the "About" page.

Given that this is a state agency there is a fairly complicated and extensive process that must be gone thru to make a hiring at this level.   Job must be posted for so long, interviews, etc etc - its the state of NY for Gods sake which has many hoops to jump thru before it orders toilet paper much less hire a GM.
ORDA is a quasi state agency. they are not bound to civil service rules and reg's.

i meant more along the lines of hiring and promoting. most state agency's require employees to take a civil service exam in order to be hired and promoted. They are bound by civil service authority when hiring and firing. Promotions are reserved for candidates reachable on a promotional list usually the top 3 scores. A job posting on ORDA's web site does indicate employees become members of the NYS retirement system. Nice perk for those hired by ORDA.
