Michael grew up in Livingston, Montana and attended Montana State in Bozeman, where he caught the skiing bug at a young age and it continued to lead him all over the West Coast. After college Michael moved to the Bay Area, where his hospitality career began. He continued to ski and also began hosting large hospitality golf events at the Presidio Golf Course in San Francisco, which led him to hit the road traveling the country with Cleveland Golf as their traveling specialist. Michael’s passion for skiing brought him back to some of the most notable resort towns, including Sun Valley, ID, Big Sky, MT, and in 2014 Michael joined the Clear Creek Group as the sales and reservationist supervisor.
Michael met his wife Shawna in Jackson Hole seven years ago, and always hoped to make Jackson their home. They now have a son, and are excited to raise a family in the town they met in. With his customer service and hospitality experience, Michael continues to fulfill his passion for skiing, and sharing his extensive knowledge through his guest service position.
Ryan was born and raised in Waupaca, Wisconsin. He and his father took their first fly fishing trip to Montana in 1999, creating an indelible love with the West and the Greater Yellowstone area. Ryan has been a devout sportsman, returning ever since.
Ryan attended Saint Cloud State University in Minnesota and the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh where he majored in both Spanish and English languages. While studying abroad at the University of Salamanca during his senior year he met his soon-to-be wife, Jennifer. They returned to Wisconsin for a year where Ryan taught various Spanish courses at Fox Valley Technical College.
Later, Ryan and Jennifer moved back to Spain to teach and travel the world in their spare time. After visiting 34 countries and teaching for four years, they decided to return to the U.S., and Jackson Hole was at the top of their list to lay down roots.
When he isn’t working, Ryan and his beautiful wife are out exploring the pristine trout streams of the West, playing hockey, golfing, hiking, cross-country skiing, or traveling the globe.
