Wiquist leaves GMC
Staff Report | November 22,2013
Will Wiquist, who has led the Green Mountain Club since April 2011, has left the organization.
Wiquist posted on Facebook this morning about his departure and it was later confirmed through the GMC.
"I’ve decided to step away from the Green Mountain Club," Wiquist wrote on his Facebook page. "I’m very proud of my work at the club: our improved financial status, starting the historic Winooski bridge project, leading the successful push for an energy siting commission (thanks to the governor for making that happen), and much more."
Wiquist didn't say what he plans to do, but did say the Long Trail will be part of his immediate future.
"While I’m leaving GMC, I don’t plan to leave the Long Trail – in fact I look forward to lots of winter hikes and quality time with my snowboard," Wiquist wrote "I am genuinely looking forward to whatever lies ahead."
