Steamboat Ski & Resort Corp. has hired Micheal Ann Marchand as director of development, a newly created position under the developmental projects umbrella of Alterra Mountain Co.

According to the resort, Marchand will act as the lead communicator between Alterra Mountain Company’s development team, Steamboat Resort’s leadership team and local contractors and agencies during the next phases of mountain construction.

These projects will include the Gondola Transit Center and the Meadows Parking Lot Improvements, with Marchand slated to begin Aug. 14. 

According to President and COO of Steamboat Ski & Resort Corp. Rob Perlman, the company needs a dynamic person to coordinate with all the stakeholders to streamline projects. Perlman said that Marchand’s developmental experience makes her an ideal fit for the new position. 

Marchand will oversee project documentation and lead coordinator plans, including managing goals, team members and overall efficiency of workflow. In addition, Marchand will take a leadership role in developing internal and external relationships with third party consultants, community organizers, government liaisons, public figures and private lenders while maintaining the company’s sustainability goals. 

Prior to joining Steamboat Ski Resort Corp., Marchand was the director of development and sales for Brynn Grey Partners, where she oversaw all developmental phases. In 2017 during her time there, Marchand helped to secure entitlements for West Steamboat Neighborhoods and the annexation of 191 acres into the city.

In addition, Marchand acted as project manager for Frisco’s Basecamp Lofts & Studios, overseeing entitlement securement, construction feasibility statistics and schematic design coordination. 

Marchand graduated from Louisiana State University in 2014 with a degree in disaster science and management. In 2020, she became one of Steamboat Springs “20 Under 40” winners during her time on the board of directors for the Yampa Valley Housing Authority and the Steamboat Springs Chamber as the chair of the Routt County Economic Development Council.
