Paul Bousquet, son of Bousquet founder Clare Bousquet, passed away on New Year's Eve at the age of 85.

An alumnus of Dartmouth College and the University of Vermont, Bousquet spent decades in the ski industry, most recently as a member of the Board of Directors at the New England Ski Museum.

During the 1960s, Bousquet served as General Manager and Vice President at Killington while the ski area rose to prominence. He resigned in the fall of 1967 and was given a banquet in his honor.

After serving as Managing Director at Poma of North America, Bousquet assembled a group that purchased Bousquet ski area in 1968. He proceeded to run the ski area until 1981.

Bousquet then went on to serve as Marketing Director at Beech Mountain, Director of Retail Operations at Loon, and President of the New England Ski Areas Council.
