Sugar Bowl Resort has announced Bridget Legnavsky has been named president and CEO of Sugar Bowl Royal Gorge based in Norden, Calif., effective Oct. 17.

Following a six-month talent search, Legnavsky was identified as the top prospect based on her experience and vision. She will work alongside the current president and CEO, Greg Dallas as he transitions to a vice-chairman role focused on execution of the resorts master plan.

Legnavsky has worked in the ski industry for over 30 years, starting as a ski instructor working at resorts across the globe, including several seasons in the U.S. at Breckenridge and Aspen.

In 2014, she assumed the role of general manager at Cardrona Alpine Resort in her native New Zealand. While at Cardrona, the resort saw impressive growth in skier visits by shifting focus to terrain parks and a highly engaged workforce.

In 2020, Legnavksy’s responsibilities were expanded to include oversight of a second resort, Treble Cone Ski Area. Most recently, she worked for RealNz as the chief experience officer while managing both ski areas.

In addition to her role at the resorts, Legnavsky was heavily involved with the community focused on workforce strategy for New Zealand tourism, serving as deputy chair for a local college, board member for the Wanaka Chamber of Commerce and was involved in multiple environmental initiatives around the country.
