Editor’s Note: This story has been updated to include information about the next general manager of Keystone Resort, Chris Sorensen.

Jody Churich will take over as Breckenridge Ski Resort’s new vice president and chief operating officer following John Buhler’s retirement. Chris Sorensen will take Churich’s place as the vice president and general manager of Keystone Resort. Churich and Sorensen will start their new roles June 7.

“With the move to Breck, Jody joins the team at an exciting time, with the return of Epic Discovery this summer, construction of a new chairlift on Peak 7 and the resort’s 60th anniversary season ahead,” resort spokesperson Sara Lococo wrote in an email.



Churich has served as the vice president and general manager of Keystone Resort since October 2019 and has worked at several other ski areas throughout her career, including Park City Mountain Resort, Boreal Mountain and Soda Springs Mountain Resort.

Sorensen has led Vail Resorts’ midwest region resorts as the vice president and general manager since 2019. He started his career with Vail Resorts as a lift operator at Keystone in 2004.
