Please vote for 2 candidates to fill the "Retail" position with the HPCA Board of Directors. 

Ballots must be submitted by NOON on June 13, 2017.
Puggy Holmgren – Incumbent
Crosby Collection

“It is important (vital!) to preserve the historic Park City character and encourage compatible growth and solutions.  It is important to communicate with and support the Main Street merchants and HPCA Board. I am prepared, knowledgeable, organized, respectful, polite and calm.

Greg Ottoson – Incumbent
Aloha Ski & Snowboard Rental
I believe that Park City and the Main Street area specifically are in the throes of substantial upheaval and change.  Although this process has been growing for many years, I think we are in a position where we can still have some control over the inevitable large scale challenges we are already facing, as well as those we have yet to face.  It would be my hope that I could be of help as a board member as we move forward.  I have had the good fortune to have worked the last 30 years in Hospitality, Food and Beverage, and Ski Rental/Retail.  I have been part owner and Operations Manager for Aloha Ski & Snowboard for the last 13 years.  We have our headquarters on Main Street and 7 more stores throughout Park City.  We employ 65-70 employees during the winter season.  In the past I have managed several resort hotels, and a pub/restaurant in England.  I have enjoyed filling in as Becca Gerber’s replacement on the Board and hope that you will consider my application to stay on.

Timothy Gillis
The North Face/Vail Retail
I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas and spent my childhood and teen years racing Motor-Cross and Enduro nationally and throughout Texas, where I developed a broad introduction to the challenges of recreational land use facing both public and private land owners. I later studied Philosophy and Bio-Chemistry at Texas Tech University before enlisting in the United States Air Force. I served in multiple roles in Italy, Afghanistan, and Korea before moving to Utah for my first taste of ski-bumming in 2004 at Snowbird and Alta. I moved back to Utah in 2013 as a store manager for the Park City Home Depot, and then became store manager for Vail Resorts Retail at The North Face store on Main St. I have fallen for the charm of Old Town and would love the opportunity to help maintain its character.
