susan schneider

Chairperson: Susan Schneider (term expires 2020)

I have worked at the bank for 8 years, starting as a Teller and working my way up to Community Bank Manager.  I’m currently on the Board for the Backdoor Theater.   I used to be the president of the Board of Directors for the Carousel of Happiness and still love to work in their garden.  Nederland is my first small town.  My father was in the Air Force so I moved around a lot as a kid but I mostly grew up in Alaska.  I love dogs, cats, cooking, science fiction and my husband.                                   


Vice Chair: Brent Tregaskis (term expires 2021)

Originally from Provo, Utah, the first time I came to Nederland was to ski race back in the early 80’s for Utah State University Ski Team.  Since then, I graduated from college and started a career in the ski resort business.  I have worked in Park City, Utah, Jackson Hole, Wyo., and Big Bear Lake, Calif., prior to accepting a position at Eldora Mountain Resort where I am currently the General Manager.  I am very excited to be involved in the community and make Nederland a better place to work, live, and take advantage of its natural beauty and proximity to the Front Range.
