500 Years Of Expertise

There’s a modern hypothesis that it takes 10,000 hours of doing almost anything to become a master at it. By that measure, all of our Experts qualify as having mastered their sports many times over. They’ve also mastered the craft of being able to help you get the most from your mountain recreation. Collectively the Experts at Jans and White Pine Touring have over 500 years of experience among our core staff, and there aren’t that many of us.
