I am Eb Kinney and had the pleasure of becoming a board member this year. I began my education at Burr Burton Academy in Manchester, Vermont. After high school, I attended Ohio Diesel Technical Institute in Cleveland, Ohio. That lead to a job in Boston, Massachusetts for 3 years, and then back to Vermont in 1985, where I worked for Ascutney Mountain for 5 years. In 1990 I had the privilege of starting my career at Okemo Mountain Resort. During my time at Okemo I’ve worked in multiple positions and now work as the Senior Director of Mountain Operations.
The Okemo Mountain School is known for academics and I believe education is one of the fundamental goals of life. The school is known for instilling the passion of the ski industry into today’s students, while still promoting a great education. I look forward to being involved in the continued success of OMS and promote the students passion for skiing and riding.
I have always had a passion for the outdoors. My father introduced me to both hunting and making maple syrup at a young age. I still enjoy hunting and hiking through the woods. In 1992, with the help of my family we started our own sugaring operation. We have slowly grown our operation and presently tap 3,600.
I live in Brownsville with my wife of 33 years, where we raised three children.
