Our Staff and Crew
PAMELA BOLD – President Eastern Sierra Nordic Ski Association
After receiving her B.A. in Communicative Disorders, Pam spent 15 years working in various marketing and administrative positions in the computer and internet industries. Upon moving to the Mammoth area in 2006, she has been able to dedicate herself full-time to her family and volunteering. Pam is Mom to two active boys and spends much of her time driving them from one activity to another. That said, with Pam’s vast volunteer responsibilities, it’s impressive that she has time for her family at all. Currently serving as the President of the Eastern Sierra Nordic Ski Association, the organizing body for the Mammoth Biathlon, Pam aids in supporting all Nordic Skiing events and activities in the Eastern Sierra. In addition, she is a member of Mammoth High School’s Site Council and has held many active roles in the Mammoth Elementary School’s Parent Teacher Organization, MHS Boosters, MMSO, AYSO and Mammoth Schools NOW. She has been involved with the Eastern Sierra Biathlon Movement since 2007 and started participating in 2010. Pam considers herself blessed to be able to live in such a beautiful place and to be able to contribute to the wellbeing of the community.
