Meet the ski bums
 

Geoff McDonald
Co-Founder

Geoff "Big Ohio" McDonald grew up appreciating the small mountains of the Midwest, learning to ski on 264 vertical feet of pure fun. He moved to the Green Mountains for college and hasn't left. Now you can find him mashing moguls like a maniac on his 200cm+ 1990 K2 Extremes. For Geoff, the off-season consists of learning the bag pipes, coaching soccer, being a rad dad to 4 awesome daughters, and finding the best swimming holes in VT.

Chris 'Rooster' James
Co-Founder

Rooster grew up in mid-coast ME , shredding the Loaf throughout his childhood. Now he jumps between Stowe, Jay, and MRG to find the goods on his K2 Reckoners. He dreams of ripping down secret stashes through untouched hip deep pow with his buds. In the off season he likes to ride waves, hike with the pup, and noodle on his acoustic guitar. Eating lobstah and whoopie pies are essential to life.
