COPPER MOUNTAIN – Copper Mountain Resort announced Jamie Wilson as the resort’s new communications manager.

Wilson brings communications experience from previous jobs in media relations and communications for the town of Vail’s Community Information Office and the Vail Valley Chamber and Tourism Bureau.

Wilson’s duties at Copper include acting as media liaison, writing resort press releases and other copy, conducting familiarization tours, coordinating photography and video activities around the mountain and acting as a spokesperson on behalf of the resort.

“We are truly excited to bring Jamie on board,” said Ben Friedland, director of marketing for Copper. “Her knowledge of the field and infectious attitude will prove to be a valuable asset to the resort.”

Originally from Gypsum, Wilson, 27, is an avid outdoor enthusiast.

She graduated from Colorado State University in 1999 with a major in technical journalism and political science and a public relations concentration.

During her time at CSU, she ski raced for the university’s alpine ski team.

Wilson replaces Friedland following his promotion to director of marketing in December.

She also assumes public relations duties from Beth Jahnigen who has transitioned to her new role of youth marketing and events manager.
