I graduated from UM in 1995 with a degree in Wildlife Biology and a minor degree in Wilderness studies.

My wife, Jenny, and I started operating the Downing Mountain Lodge in 2008-2009 and purchased the facility and 60 acres in July, 2012. Operating as the premier Montana backcountry ski lodge in the winter and a holiday retreat the rest of the year, the Downing Mountain Lodge is located west of Hamilton Montana in the Bitterroot Range of the Rocky Mountains. With incredible skiing in the winter and exceptionally private but accessible lodging year round, the Downing Mountain Lodge, built in 1976, is the iconic mountain lodge in the Bitterroot Valley, available to the public for enjoyment and pleasurable stays.
