Hancock, MA Nov. 11--Jiminy Peak principals Brian H. Fairbank and Joseph J. O'Donnell have formed a new corporation called Brodie Mountain Resort, Inc. (BMR) that purchased the Berkshire resort of the same name. Jiminy Peak, Inc. is not an owner of BMR and the purchase price will remain undisclosed.
James Van Dyke, former director of mountain operations at Jiminy Peak, has been promoted to director of resort operations for Brodie and Karen Fairs, Fairbank's administrative assistant, has been promoted to administrative manager for the newly-purchased ski area. Remaining functions, such as accounting, purchasing, administration and marketing, will be handled by Jiminy's head office. Matt and Doug Kelly, sons of Brodie-founder Jim Kelly, will stay on as part of the management team.
While future plans have not yet been finalized, Jiminy has announced that season pass holders at either resort will be allowed to use their passes in a reciprocal manner to purchase a lift ticket for $10. Additionally, Jiminy promises that Brodie's long-famous Irish slant to downhilling, including the famous St. Patrick's Day celebration, will remain very much intact.
