Scott Sutton

I started working in the ski industry in 1987 at Perfect North Slopes in Lawrenceburg, IN – working in the rental shop mounting and tuning skis and snowboards.  During college I worked for ski and climbing shops to help pay for my undergraduate degree. In 1993 I moved to Boulder, CO were I worked as a buyer and manager for Neptune Mountaineering. In 2000, I started working for Alpin Sales as an independent sales representative working for K2 Telemark, Marmot, Tubbs snowshoes, and Garmont.  In 2004, along with my business partner, Kirk Haskell, we started KNS Reps Inc.  Now in our 10 year, KNS Reps works with Big Agnes, Scarpa, Julbo, Deuter, Ortovox and Nikwax and partners with the best specialty ski, outdoor and hunting stores in the Rocky Mountain States of Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and 

I enjoy the excitement of trying something different rather than the same old thing and watching it succeed for my retailers, their employees and my vendors.

It’s an incredible honor to be named one of the 2015 reps of the year by SIA.  This award is a huge compliment to the hard work and fun I have in the ski industry.
