Owner, Avid Outdoorsman
Kyle was born and raised in Seattle’s Sunset Hill neighborhood. This hometown boy grew up working in his dad’s ski and bike store, Alpine Hut. After spending 4 years in Utah, working in ski shops to learn the fine art of boot fitting and crafting custom food beds, he returned to Seattle to take over the shop he grew up in. Kyle’s expertise and experience, as well as his passion for adventure, brings customers from not just Seattle, but New York and Los Angeles, to get a pair of custom fitted boots.
Jim was born in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Legend has it he was the first kid in his county to have a front shock! We do know he started skiing in the Butternut Basin when he was 2 years old. Like Kyle, the natural beauty and nearby mountains made it easy to get outside and explore, creating a passion for adventure and the outdoors. Jim is a certified binding technician with over 16 years of experience tuning skis, first on the East Coast and now in the Pacific Northwest. Jim knows just about everything about gear, so when it comes to skis, he’ll never miss a detail.
Kyle “Mitch” Mitchell
Kyle Mitchell–but you can call him Mitch–grew up in Baltimore, Maryland. For as long as he can remember, he has loved the great outdoors. Mitch is an avid mountain biker, as well as a downhill and backcountry skier. He has worked as a ski tech in both Maryland and Maine before joining the team at Alpine Hut. He attended the University of Farmington in Maine, where he studied Community Health and Outdoor Recreation Programming. He ran a successful program to get kids outdoors–so if you’ve got little ones you want to inspire to try a new adventure, he’s your man!
Sara Shier grew up in Edmonds, Washington.

As long as she’s outside, she’s all in! Sara is an expert merchandiser and she loves following the newest trends. While the outdoors is Sara’s greatest passion, helping customers find the coolest, newest stuff is her second greatest passion!
