Jack Weise (wī·zee): Shop Manager. He is in charge of tuning our rental equipment as well as personal ski fixes and tunes.
This Brandon, MN native is a Crested Butte Mountain Athlete. He’s easy to spot on the hill in yellow and orange. Jack’s favorite thing about Crested Butte is the small town atmosphere. There are lots of familiar faces in this town, everyone seems to know one another. This goes for our visiting customers as well.
His favorite ski runs on Mt. Crested Butte are International, Upper Park, and Highlife.
Jeff Koether: Base Area Manager.
He was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ and bailed out of the desert to finish college at Western State in Gunnison. Winter is what brought Jeff to the Gunnison valley but has grown to learn that the summers have just as much to offer. After a short stint as a copier salesman, after graduating from college, Jeff found himself a bit lost without skis under his feet so he packed up and he’s been in Crested Butte from then on.
Jeff’s favorite things about Crested Butte: The light, fluffy snow that falls in this isolated valley feels good when it gets all over my face while skiing. The laid back, no worries kind of environment that Crested Butte offers poses as a great landscape for people trying to get away from the fast-paced, rat-race lifestyle.
Favorite runs: Predator Glades, Teocalli Bowl hike to Third Bowl and hike out to east river.
