Big Picture Vision / Andy Daly: It seems fitting that the mayor of Vail was also the president of Vail Resorts, is the recipient of the National Ski Areas Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and oversees his own ski area in his spare time. Daly began his career as a patroller in 1970 and went on to hold top management positions at Copper Mountain, Beaver Creek, Eldora, Vail Mountain and Vail Resorts. After his tenure as president of Vail Resorts in 2002, Daly never imagined he’d enter politics, but a few years later he successfully ran for the Vail council and was selected by his peers a year ago to wield the gavel. “It’s a wonderful opportunity,” says Daly. “I came in with a comprehensive background, and I understand how important it is for everyone to work together.” Daly also became a part-owner of Powderhorn Ski Area, near Grand Junction, in the fall of 2011, and immediately announced plans to invest in and revitalize the community resort. - © Julia Vandenoever
