Ryan’s passion for mountain biking started around age eight when he got a bright green Diamondback mountain bike that weighed twice as much as he did. Growing up biking in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California gave him an appreciation for epic single-track rides that has driven him to explore trails around the world. Ryan’s love for adventure has taken him to over 50 countries to work, live, and play, spending multiple years in Africa and Latin America. He holds an International MBA degree, a MA in Global Finance & Trade, and a BA degree in Spanish. His work endeavors include managing an ecotourism lodge in Costa Rica, starting socially oriented telecommunications businesses in four African countries, owning and operating a snowcat skiing business, and working as a helicopter ski guide. These days, Ryan oversees Snow King Ski Area and has his hands full raising twin girls and their older brother, who at age four is tearing up the trails of Jackson on his first pedal bike.
