About Sean Doll

Professor Doll has professional experience with Eastern Mountain Sports, Recreation Equipment Incorporated, Xanterra Travel Collection in Yellowstone National Park, B-Bar Guest Ranch and Nordic Center, Lee County Parks and Recreation in North Carolina, and Omni Mount Washington Resort and Bretton Woods Ski Area (OMWR/BW). Most recently, with OMWR/BW he was heavily involved with marketing and public relations and oversaw sales, event management, adventure activities, guest relations, the Bretton Woods Nordic Center, and general mountain resort management. While serving as president of the Twin Mountain/Bretton Woods Chamber of Commerce, Professor Doll also served on other various boards and committees throughout northern New Hampshire and Vermont.

Professor Doll currently serves on the Board of Directors for the New England Ski Museum and he is a Commissioner for his home town parks and recreation department just over the border in Littleton, New Hampshire. Additionally, he has volunteered as a lead fly fishing instructor for the Dr. Richard J. Schilling Fly Fishing Celebration, and annually volunteers for the Ragnar Reach the Beach Relay, the Bretton Woods Nordic Marathon, and the Lyndon Outing Club, a small local ski area located across town from the Lyndon campus.

While Professor Doll’s main focus is on the ski industry through our Mountain Resort Management concentration, he also manages interns from both concentrations within the Outdoor Education, Leadership and Tourism department (Mountain Resort Management and Adventure Education) and visits them wherever their internships might take them – from working at golf resorts in Florida to Heli-skiing operations in Alaska, from backcountry skiing in the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming to hiking in the Grand Canyon in the middle of the summer, and so on. Professor Doll also leads a sophomore field practicum where he travels with students to our six partner resorts here in New England: Bretton Woods Mountain Resort, Burke Mountain, Cannon Mountain, Jay Peak Resort, Smugglers’ Notch Resort, and Stowe Mountain Resort.

Professor Doll strongly believes in making the effort to have personal, face-to-face interactions with the organizations who host our interns as a way to maintain relationships in the field for the benefit of future students and interns. He also believes getting out in the field helps keep the information he shares in his classes current. Back on campus, when Professor Doll is in the classroom, he likes to deliver course content by keeping things light, fun and entertaining.
