Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


As an active member in the Santa Fe community, Macfarlane’s roles included the chairperson of the Santa County Lodgers Tax Advisory Board, Business Council member of both the New Mexico Museum Association and Santa Fe Opera, as well as being a strong supporter of Cooking with Kids and Partners in Education. 

“My family and I are elated to be joining the Vail community," Macfarlane said in a statement. "Both my husband and I were actively involved in Santa Fe and we cannot wait to do the same here in Vail. For us it’s about getting to know the people and celebrating the destination.”

Macfarlane will begin her new role at the resort, and in the community, on May 30, 2018. She will be joined by her husband Doug, two sons Owen and Max and dog Eggsy.

“My family and I love being outdoors. We are big skiers and hikers so we’re excited to explore all Vail has to offer,” she said in a statement. “The idea of waking up and seeing a deer in your backyard never gets old for me! My husband and I are thrilled to raise our family here and really embrace the mountain lifestyle.”
