So, on a beautiful Fall day in September, I planned to hike over West Maroon Pass to Aspen to visit my friends at the Ute Mountaineer, and hang with Sam, my good buddy whom also works on the buying team at the shop...I have been selling outdoor gear for over 20 years, and it was refreshing to see a myriad of folks getting after it. I thought of sharing my sales pitch for Big Agnes several times, but kept it to myself.

Our 75 – Big Agnes’ Sponsored Section of the CDT

Essays From the Field
"To be back on the CDT in September, 2017 doing trail work with my co-workers and the founders of Big Agnes, was one of the most fulfilling moments of my life. More than anything I have done, the CDT forged me into the person I am today. It is a privilege to walk the CDT and share the responsibility of caring for it with the Big Agnes family." Read the rest
