He loves exploring the backcountry and finding new lakes and trails. A Bay Area native, he earned an engineering degree at Stanford and an MBA at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley. Married to Kathie, they have two grown children – Jeremy who shares ownership of the Lost Cabin townhouse, and Mindy.

Art Taylor, Vice President

Home Owner – “The Meadows” since 1990 and served on the Board of Directors for 10 plus years (President for most of those years). In my opinion, The Meadows is the best managed HOA in the Kirkwood Valley. We have successfully completed major structural and maintenance projects without raising dues or assessments. Under strong leadership, The Meadows HOA remained strong during the recent financial down turn (foreclosures, reduced HOA income and aging building challenges). The Meadows has a true sense of family and community. Owners enjoy potlucks, 4th of July celebrations, holiday parties and daily après ski get togethers.

Professional Experience – 38 years of experience Managing in the public sector; 25 years at the Santa Clara Valley Transit Authority as a facilities manager, maintenance superintendent, deputy director of maintenance and maintenance supervisor; 10 years as the fleet manager at the Santa Clara Valley Water District; 5 years as the President of the Santa Clara Valley Water District’s Managers Association; very experienced managing large facilities construction projects, operational and capital budgeting, master planning and capital planning.

Personal – I have been married for 34 years to my lovely wife Shelley. We have been blessed with two sons, Brandon and Brett who grew up skiing at Kirkwood. Many wonderful holidays and birthdays were celebrated at Kirkwood. I am an avid skier, mountain and road bicyclist, backpacker and hiker.

Why I am on the KCA Board of Directors – I love Kirkwood and want it to be the best that it can be. The pool and club can be so much more! We need to think outside of the “Kirkwood box”. I understand the “K” factor and the many challenges. Although we are so fortunate to have the Vail ownership group, I want Kirkwood to be more than just a “Corporate town”. It needs to be a balance where homeowner’s priorities are truly a priority of KCA. There must be accountability and value to the homeowners for every dollar KCA spends. KCA needs to do much more to bring owners together as a community.

Doug Pierini, Vail Resorts

Doug Pierini has recently come to Kirkwood as the new VP and General Manager of Kirkwood Mountain Resort.  He moved to South Lake Tahoe with his wife Leigh and their two kids from Breckenridge Colorado where he was the Vice President of Skier Services.

He basically grew up in a ski school locker room as a kid and quickly moved into racing and competing wherever he could on skis.  He even spent time on the Free-skiing tour, which brought him to Kirkwood to compete in the ‘90s and was also a member of the PSIA National Alpine Team for three terms. Originally from New Jersey, Doug has experience working at senior levels at a number of resorts, but one of the most influential aspects of Doug’s experience is his time already spent in Lake Tahoe.  He held senior leadership positions at Alpine Meadows/Homewood and Sierra-at-Tahoe resorts. His intimate knowledge of the unique Tahoe climate and market will be key to leveraging Kirkwood’s special place in the ski industry. In addition to his time in Tahoe, Doug has worked at several other ski resorts including: Jackson Hole (Wyoming); Portillo (Chile); Mt. Buller (Australia); Steamboat (Colorado) and Plattekill Mountain (New York).

Doug is very excited about being in his new role at Kirkwood and is looking forward to the opportunities that lie ahead for this resort.  He and his family love Lake Tahoe and they are thrilled to become a part of the Kirkwood Community.
