Olivia's story

Olivia has 13 years of experience in the ski industry in administration, sales and marketing, fundraising, and volunteer team management at Schweitzer Alpine Racing School in Idaho and Sugarbush Mountain in Vermont. Gregg is a software developer and compliance manager but started out by working for Sugarbush Ski Resort in Vermont and has served as a firefighter and Patrol Clinic volunteer at Schweitzer Mountain Resort in Idaho. Gabriel is a social media specialist and former ski racer for Schweitzer Alpine Racing School. Our small, but scrappy team has over 20 years of experience in the alpine skiing industry and it's where we discovered our passion for goal-driven outdoor activity. Located in Madison, WI and Sandpoint, ID, we have the best of two worlds. One isolated in the mountains, skiing, mountain biking, swimming, and kayaking, and one with road cycling, running, and paddleboarding as well as centered in a rich entrepreneurial ecosystem with all the resources we need to build a platform that will enhance our next adventure. This platform is Alpen, a social network to bridge the gap between these two worlds so that we can embark on the wildest, most remote adventures, but stay connected and engaged with other driven athletes.
