Executive Director with Vail Valley Mountain Trails Alliance
Eagle County, Colorado
Ernest came to the Vail Valley in 2014 to work as the Director of Operations for a local nonprofit organization. He currently resides in Eagle with his adventure partner Hailee. Ernest believes that like the reward of a downhill after a long climb or setting a skin track, trail work provides that same “earn your turns” satisfaction. When you can’t find him on a bike or skis, you’ll most likely still find him outdoors, and if not there then he’s in an ice rink. Ernest is also a member of Vail Mountain Rescue Group. He serves on many coalitions and committees in the Vail Valley including the Eagle County Community Wildlife Roundtable, Town of Eagle Open Space & Trails Advisory Committee, Eagle Valley Outdoor Stewardship Coalition, and more. He is truly excited to help bring new and improved trails to our community for all to enjoy for many years to come.
