I grew up ski racing at Afton Alps Ski Area in Minnesota and then throughout high school and college I worked in the Afton Alps Ski Shop for Lynn Bourdaghs. That gave me the opportunity to move into being a manufacturer’s representative and in 1984 I formed my own manufacturer’s sales agency, Tom Blair and Associates. Today we represent some of the finest companies in the snow sports industry including Atomic, Descente, Leki, Neve Designs, Rocky Mountain Sunscreen, and Zeal Optics. I want to thank all my retailers for voting for me 3 years in a row. I am extremely honored.
