Meet the ski bums

Geoff McDonald

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 James

Chris "Rooster" James grew up in mid-coast ME , shredding the Loaf throughout his childhood. Now he jumps around Northern VT to find the goods on his K2 Reckoners. He dreams of fresh stashes of untouched hip deep pow and springtime corn harvests. 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.

Ryan Rubino
Brand Manager

Ryan 'Rubini's Weenies🌭 Rubino ensures the stoke is amongst everyone. You can catch him at Stowe or Mad River on his K2 Reckoners shredding throughout the year. In the off-season he likes to hunt for brookies, go for a swim, or hop on a bike to hit the trail. There is no off-season for Ryan's most important job, being a dad. He's got Dad Jokes intwined in his DNA that his two boys will come to appreciate.

Pat Sheils

Paddy delivers you the best content from the slopes and studio. Pat grew up skiing Saddleback and loves doing slushy park laps with the boys on his ARV 106s. During his time abroad, Pat got the chance to lap Copenhill, the world's first fully functioning ski slope and power plant. During the off-season, you can catch him exploring the mountains of New England, always with a camera in hand.

Jake Whitlock
Digital & Events Manager

Jake "Gumby" Whitlock grew up in Beantown Mass. and started skiing when he got to UVM in 2015...But don't let that fool you, he lives for skiing, so much so that he flunked math class for it (sorry Mom). Nicknamed for his ability to bounce back from an odd list of injuries and when he's not on a stretcher you can find him shredding Jay Peak, Stowe, or MRG. Jake enjoys mountain biking, listening to vinyl, shooting on film and ripping bumps on some old Rossi R6000s.

Hannah Burt
Sales & Service Manager

Han grew up in a small town in the 603, so like every New Hampshire shredder, she stays true to the "Live Free or Die" state of mind. During the winter months, you can find her on her Rossi Rallybirds, searching for powder through the glades of Cannon or on dawn patrol for dreamy sunrise skins. When it's not snowing, she's still baggin' peaks with her 4-legged pal, taking a dip in a chilly mountain stream, or sipping a juicy local brew.
