“Kayla has a strong focus on customer service, staff well-being and retention,” said Tait Germon, director of mountain operations at Killington Resort and Pico Mountain. “She has great ideas and energy to help move the department forward and I’m excited to have her as the lift operations manager and enter this new phase of her career at Killington Resort and Pico Mountain.”

Sarajian most recently served as lift operations supervisor, providing training, operational oversight and mentorship to a team of approximately 140 lift operators and ticket checkers.

She began her career at Killington Resort in 2014 as a team leader for the Unleashed program in the snow sports department. She began working summers as an attendant for the Snowshed Adventure Center, eventually becoming a foreman for the lift operations group and transferring to that department full time in 2016.

Sarajian worked as a team leader for lift operations at Ramshead and Snowshed, two very active and dynamic areas of the resort. Sarajian’s skills of communication, organization and training were huge assets as she built successful operational teams in challenging beginner and learning areas.
