Spirit Mountain Executive Director to Resign

Created: 01/22/2014 6:16 PM WDIO.com

A leadership change is coming to one of the Northland's biggest ski hills.

Spirit Mountain Executive Director Renee Mattson told Eyewitness News Wednesday that she will be stepping down this summer after about nine years on the job. She said her husband, Terry Mattson, has accepted a job out of the area. He headed up Visit Duluth until last month.

Renee Mattson said she has become close to staff and that leaving will be tough, but told us "I won't miss having to worry about the weather every day."

Dangerously cold temperatures prompted Spirit Mountain to close temporarily earlier in the season.
