Oliver was born and raised on the east benches of the Salt Lake Valley at the mouths of the Cottonwood Canyons. His love for the mountains and close proximity to the Wasatch Front Range fostered a passion for hiking, climbing, backpacking, mountain biking, and of course, skiing and snowboarding.
Oliver graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in Adventure & Outdoor Programming. In his studies, Oliver spent many weekends on the rivers of Southern Utah paddling through desert canyons in canoes, paddle rafts, SUP boards and kayaks. Escaping the heat of the desert, Oliver and his Alaskan Husky (Utah), travel and work seasonally between summers in the San Juan Islands and winters at ski resorts across the west! Oliver is returning for his 4th season with AKT this summer and knows our operation inside and out. He is one of a kind and we love having him around.
