Cripple Creek Backcountry Vail Staff
During the cold months you will most likely find Tom chatting up a customer in the Vail shop or in a pit nerding out on the snowpack. He was born and raised on the icy slopes of the East Coast but you wouldn’t even know it until you hear him say wudder (water). In his free time Tom enjoys lapping low angled pow on Vail Pass, harvesting steep alpine corn, and prefers to end the day with a cold craft brew- ideally from Bonfire Brewing. At Cripple Creek Tom wears a few hats as the man behind the Instagram, editor and contributor of the blog, as well as a certified ski technician. Be sure to stop by for a beer or coffee next time you’re passing through Vail and say hello!
