White River forest gets new supervisor

GLENWOOD SPRINGS – Scott Fitzwilliams has been named the new supervisor for the White River National Forest, home to some of the country’s best-known ski areas.

Fitzwilliams will start his new job in late August or early September. He is now the acting and deputy supervisor of Willamette National Forest in Eugene, Ore.

Fitzwilliams started his Forest Service career about 20 years ago as an intern in the agency’s regional office in Golden. He has also worked in the Tongass National Forest in Alaska, the Little Missouri National Grassland in North Dakota and the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming.

The 2.3 million-acre White River encompasses the Vail and Aspen ski areas and eight wilderness areas.
