Black Mountain, Sugarbush prodigy receiving recognition as snowmaker

Doug Fichera is only 21 years old but is already receiving national recognition as a snowmaking expert.

Fichera considers his craft an art form. He works as an overnight shift supervisor at Sugarbush Resort in Vermont, and is responsible for the entire snowmaking operation at his family’s Black Mountain area in New Hampshire. At the same time, he’s a full-time Champlain College senior pursuing a major in business and a minor in marketing, and is preparing for an internship that will involve the capital improvement study of a multimillion-dollar snowmaking operation.
