General Manager

Chris Thornton

Gear Junkie

Chris does it all. Climbing, mountain biking, backpacking, skiing, you name it. Being in Boise since he was a wee lad, he loves this city and all the opportunities it gives him to get outside and get rad. Known infamously for his ultra-huck this last ski season, Chris’ complete disregard for gear maintenance and self-preservation…
