Board of Directors
The Snowshoe Foundation’s Board of Directors consists of a number of area volunteers, all of whom are very active in both the Snowshoe community and surrounding region.
Frank DeBerry joined the Foundation in 2011 after taking on the role of President and Chief Operating Officer for Snowshoe Mountain. Mr. DeBerry has served on several not-for-profit boards and actually used the Snowshoe Foundation model when he helped to found the Mountain Creek Foundation while serving as President of Mountain Creek Resort in Vernon, New Jersey.
Having spent his entire career in the mountain resort business, Frank has learned to appreciate the special relationship that a resort has within its community, as an employer and economic driver, as well as the resort’s responsibility to support its community in any way it can. DeBerry graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University at Albany in New York and attended the William E. Simon Graduate School of Business Administration at the University of Rochester in New York.

She began her time with Snowshoe as the Executive Assistant, Office Manager in Administration where she learned the intricacies of Snowshoe and the resort as a whole.
She worked, together with Snowshoe, to charter the Snowshoe Foundation while establishing a Board of Directors, gaining public charity status as a nonprofit organization, fundraising and building a scholarship program. The Snowshoe Foundation has granted over $1.8 million organizations and in higher education scholarships. She established and managed a pass through grant establishing the Pocahontas County Prevention Coalition. This organization continues today to serve the community of Pocahontas through Prevention Services and Programming. The resort recognized the difference that the Foundation was making and quickly tacked on the title of Snowshoe Mountain Community Liaison. She joined the Human Resources team of Snowshoe in 2007 and began her journey of building bridges between the resort and employees, while learning the ropes of the HR world. She joined the Leadership Team of Snowshoe Mountain as Interim Director of Human Resources in late September 2011.
