Backstory

Brent started skiing and biking as a kid back in Tennessee, and raced his first crit in 7th grade. He continued his outdoor adventures in Ithaca, NY where he majored in Outdoor Recreation and Environmental Studies, and started working for Cornell Outdoor Education as the Outfitting Logistics Manager, where he also taught rock and ice courses. He later moved to Boulder, CO and continued in the outdoor industry working at the Teen Adventure Camp at the Boulder, Valley YMCA, Pearl Izumi, The American Alpine Club, and Moguls MTN Travel, while climbing, paddling, running, skiing, and bike racing in the Rockies. His work in the ski travel industry led him to Park City where he has worked at White Pine as a Sales Associate, Assistant Manager, Nordic Ski Tech, and now as Assistant Bicycle and Ski Buyer. He continues to learn new ways to play in the outdoors, and enjoys meeting new people who are passionate about the outdoors.

 

“Brent is one of the nicest guys in the shop and will always drop what he's doing to help a customer or a fellow employee. Brent is one of the few guys I know who can absolutely rip a set of telemark skis. He's also a mega soccer and Tottenham Hotspur fan, so the next time you see him make sure to give him a big "Harry Kane!", something you'll find Brent saying around the shop.”
