Tom Jankovsky - Sport Builder - 2012
For over 25 years, Tom Jankovsky has been a ski industry leader, championing the efforts of small ski resorts and managing Sunlight Mountain Resort. He began his career in the ski industry at Arapahoe Basin in 1973, eventually becoming the Mountain Manager, and ultimately landed at Ski Sunlight outside of Glenwood Springs. As Sunlight’s General Manager for the past quarter century, Jankovsky focused on the skier experience, marketing the area as a friendly community, and created the ingenious Ski, Swim & Stay campaign which has allowed Sunlight to stay competitive with larger resorts. His dedication to the importance of smaller ski areas is apparent in his work on the Colorado Ski Country USA board for 24 years, involvement in countless tax and community improvement issues, and support for Colorado Ski Country USA’s Gems of Colorado and 5th Grade Passport programs. The entire industry has benefited from his unwavering passion and commitment to the future of skiing and snowboarding.
