MEET OUR CREW
Jeremy Mercier- Owner/Guide
Jeremy Mercier grew up in northern Michigan and started riding snowmobiles at the age of 3. Fueled by his passion, he moved to Colorado at the age of 18 and worked hard building his construction business so he could enjoy his winters off! He has over twenty years of avalanche education and a level two certification from Silverton Avalanche School in Silverton, Co.
He has been a Ski-Doo backcountry team member for seven years and has experience riding all types of terrain with varied snowpacks and with all types of riding groups.
Jeremy spends over 100 days on the snow annually (the guy likes his snow) and he wants to share his passion and knowledge. His goal is to help others become better riders through avalanche education, good backcountry decision making and of course find the pow!
