Steve-O

Originally from Atlanta, GA. There is great riding in the South, but Steve decided to trade views of other peoples bumpers for the grand views of the west. After living a few different spots, he landed in Truckee where mountain biking, dirt bikes and snowboarding take up most of his time.

Caleb

Caleb loves both seasons! Mountain bikes all Summer and skis all winter. Caleb competed in both expert pro enduro mountain biking races this season, and has tossed his luck and skill into a few ski and dirt bike races. He is both a ski and bike mechanic, as well as a front of house retail store manager. 

Brad

Brad lives mountain biking and has owned every bike we sell. He is soft spoken and very well researched in his advice. Any trails you want to learn in Truckee? Most of us know them, but you might as well just invite Brad to lead the ride. He also Splitboards, and I heard he is one of the mayors of Burning Man. 

Danny

Danny grew up in Truckee and enjoys blending his passion for learning about the natural world with his love of adventure sports. He is a Botanist, Arborist, and general fun outdoor lover. You will find excellent advice from Danny that is well thought out and easy to understand. He’s the guy who usually says it best. Need good backcountry ski route advice or a Sierra trail to hike? Danny is your guy.

Alec

Alec grew up in Salt Lake City, but escaped to Bellingham, WA for college. He grew up skiing Brighton and Snowbird in UT, but learned the joy of backcountry snowboarding on the northwest snowpack. He re-located to the Sierra in the 10-11 season where there’s a nice blend of sunny weather and a familiar deep maritime snowpack. Within a year of living in the Sierra he converted back to skiing, and hasn’t looked back. In the summers you can find him out on the trail riding his mountain bike. He’s nerdy enough to have skied most of the skis and bindings on the wall, and knows a thing or two about most of the bikes hanging around the shop.

Patrick

Patrick is a nomad. He has Midwest roots and grew up in the Bay Area. He likes bikes a lot and is down to ride anywhere. He spends most of his time these days traversing the Sierra Nevada on his mountain bike. Since moving to Truckee he is now addicted to rock climbing, and we are working on the skiing thing too. Hold that thought…

Kira

Kira has lived all over Lake Tahoe as well as many other mountain towns. Mountain biking is her favorite sport, but she has been snowboarding most of her life as well. She coaches and guides mountain biking year round. If you are a beginner or want to gain some skills, she would love to share her knowledge with you. Splitboarding is the newest adventure sport she is getting into and she is always learning through helping customers.

Caska

Hi! I’m the BackCountry’s favorite employee! I’ve been in bike shops my whole life! And the mark on my butt is not from a chainring! I don’t bite and like little kids petting me. I roam the parking lot off leash, please don’t take me to the animal shelter or think I’m lost. I own this place.
