» Michael Boike

Ski Vacation Specialist

Virginia Office

Growing up in North Carolina did not offer many opportunities for good skiing, but my first trip to Winter Park Colorado at age 7 hooked me on skiing all the same. While in school at Virginia Tech I was the president of the ski club, and enjoyed a number of trips up to Vermont each year. After two ‘work study’ winter in Sugarbush VT I was sure I would be working in the ski industry.

The logical move after I finished up college was to move out to Boulder CO. 18 years later I still wake up each day excited to help each client have the best travel experience from start to finish. Having skied all over both the Eastern and Western US, Canada, and most of Europe I have more than likely skied wherever you are planning to head this Winter! My favorite ski area in the world (since 1998) would still be Fernie, BC. Cool, quiet, great powder, and low key.
