Meet the Owner

Meet the Owner Growing up on the flatlands of Indiana, my favorite week of the year was the one filled with snowy slopes out west. I spent the other 51 weeks planning my routes on trail maps. So, after studying economics and statistics at Carnegie Mellon University, I moved west to chase the powder. Steamboat Springs, Aspen, Vail…I have incredible memories of so many days skiing and snowboarding on so many different mountains. I remember Park City Mountain’s Scott’s Bowl on my first really big powder day when I was 12. After a run like that, there’s no getting it out of your system.

In 2006, my powder dreams came true when I opened Black Tie Ski Rentals in Park City. Since then, I’ve received my MBA degree from The University of Chicago Booth School of Business. I met my wife, Deepika, in Chicago and we now have a beautiful daughter, Daniela, whom I can’t wait to take skiing and snowboarding. Sometimes we stray back to the midwest or to a beach, but I’ll always find myself in Park City when the snow comes.

It’s been a great ride and I’m looking forward to many more years of helping our customers fulfill their own powder dreams in Park City!
