Jim grew up in Portland, Oregon and therefore spent a lot of time on Mt Hood. Since growing up there, he has been humbled by the Rockies in Steamboat Springs, Colorado and now calls Bend, Oregon his home (since 2007). Jim frequently splits his time between riding chairlifts, and earning turns in the side-country with his dogs while producing media and content for several companies.
Jim works as the Brand Manager for BlackStrap Industries which takes him across the US every year. While traveling, he gets to enjoy some pretty amazing experiences with some even more amazing individuals. This year he is most excited to check off a couple bucket list resorts and locales while continuing to spread the word about life in the snow on a Snoplank. Find Jim on Instagram @jimsanco
