DESCRIBE YOUR IDEAL ADVENTURE.

JIM DETERS, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

“Any high-alpine adventure with friends new and old, and my family. Taking my kids new places like to Japan to nurture their sense of curiosity, adventure, and respect for our planet and other cultures is priceless.”

ROB DERDSTADT, ENGINEERING DIRECTOR

“My ideal adventure is being dropped off at a remote cabin for a month and exploring whatever the great outdoors has to offer, while enjoying time completely off the grid.”

BEN FOOTE, F&B DIRECTOR

My ideal adventure always takes place outdoors and includes multi-pitch alpine climbing, fly fishing, cycling or trail running. This often involves a campfire, quality whiskey, friends, and my dog Buck.”

SCOTT MAHONEY, TRUSTED ADVISOR

“A place or experience that lets you tell a story that makes someone follow your lead! Coolest place I have ever stood? Atop an unnamed temple at sunset in Bagan, Burma!

BRYAN FITZGERALD, CHIEF INVESTMENT OFFICER

“My adventures take two paths, both equally as enjoyable but very different. One, I love the process and training of intense physical and mental endurance stuff.  Quite the opposite, I also love stress-free skiing, biking, being outdoors with my family & good friends.”

Julie Howsmon, DIGITAL MARKETING MANAGER

“Exploring the outdoors in a new country. Whether that’s a Via Ferrata in Malaysia, ship wreck diving in the Philippines or hiking to monasteries in Spain…count me in.”

DAVE CIANI, CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER

“My ideal adventure always entails getting out of cell service, off the beaten path, hopefully with dogs and friends; camping, skiing, on-river, backpacking, fishing, and exploring, with no agenda and no timelines.”

CLAIRE MCMANUS, VP EXPERIENCES & PARTNERSHIPS

“A late summer backpacking trip with friends & family who subscribe to the magic of Type II Fun. Nothing holds a candle to the inspiration and humbleness found when standing on a million-year old peak (and nothing is more satisfying than dehydrated mashed potatoes on a spork upon returning to camp).”

ZACH BERMAN, CHIEF MARKETING OFFICER

“My ideal adventure involves experiencing places and things for the first time. Nothing is as awe inspiring as coming across a landscape, monument or ruin that you’ve only read about or seen in 2d. Bonus points if there’s somewhere for a quick backflip.”

ABE PACHARZ, CAG OWNER

“Usually involves skis or bikes, off the beaten path, mostly Type 2 fun sprinkled with some Type 3 fun to make me ask if I’d ever do it again, and a couple good adventure buddies. Also, not too much wind.”

KEVIN KENNEDY, CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER

“My ideal adventure is with my wife and kids. Seeing new places, trying new things, failing and getting up. We love long car rides and conquering fears.”

MERRITT HOPPER, EVP SALES & MEMBERSHIP

“Whether it’s road tripping across the Western U.S.  or touring Thailand with my wife and 3 kids, if it falls under adventure, count me in. Trail running, kicking a ball around the park, & snowboarding the Rockies helps fill time between big trips.”

TOM CHIKOORE, CHIEF TECHNOLOGY OFFICER

Adventures with family that involve outdoor activity, exploring new food and learning new cultures. From micro moments of single day urban hikes to mega memories of a multi-day Safaris, I love it all, especially with family.

SALVATORE PROIA, EXECUTIVE CHEF

The White Rim trail outside of Moab is my top bike-packing destination – 100 mile loop full of stunning views and challenging terrain.”

TREVOR TOM, DRYLAND DIRECTOR OF PERFORMANCE & EDUCATION

“My ideal adventure is a family getaway into the mountains where I can hang out and experience a little bit of everything… hiking, mountain biking, exercising, and enjoying a healthy lifestyle!”

GRADY HUFF,
ARCHITECT + INSTIGATOR

“I live to travel, explore & adventure with friends, family & like minded outdoor types. I have a horrible skiing and mountain biking addiction. Living in the rocky mountains helps facilitate the urges to be outdoors. Ideally all adventures are filled with  fresh air and memories to build stories to tell around the fire with a beer. Also dig surfing.”
