Welcome to Aspen/Snowmass! My name is Nick Leonard.
I’m originally from Maine, where I earned my chops ski racing through long winters, freezing temperatures, and icy conditions. After college, I moved west to chase better snow, more sunshine, and the mountain lifestyle. In the fall of 2009, I moved from Jackson Hole, Wyoming to Vail, Colorado to help my good friend Adam run the Vail/Beaver Creek location of Black Tie Ski Rentals as his general manager. In the summer of 2016, after seeing firsthand the growth and success of the business, I decided what I truly wanted was to own my own location.
From the first time I visited many years ago, Aspen blew me away with its incredibly diverse terrain, breathtaking views, endless recreation options, and charming, small-town feel. I’m extremely proud to be the new owner of Black Tie’s Aspen/Snowmass location for the 2016-2017 season.
