I had the privilege of opening the first licensed branch of Black Tie Ski Rentals when we took the concept to Big Sky, Montana in 2004. Originally from Pennsylvania, I moved to Big Sky for a winter of fun after college in 1997. Almost as soon as I got here I remember thinking, “I would REALLY like to STAY here!” Big Sky has been home ever since-it’s hard to believe that was more than 15 years ago!
After managing a ski shop in town for a few years, I found there was a demand not only for better gear but for a more convenient and hassle-free way to rent equipment. It was about this time that I found out about Black Tie. I approached the owners to learn more about their concept. Little did any of us know that it would be a match made in heaven!
My passion for telemark skiing has become an addiction since I moved here. Every year I get to ski something I have never skied before-maybe a new area just opening or a “stash” one of my friends shows me.
I know you’ll love your time in Big Sky as much as my wife (Lacey) and our two labs (Murphy and Otter) do! There’s plenty of snow for everyone here at “The Biggest Skiing in America.” We’ll see you on the slopes!
