Hende is known for his walk-the-talk product knowledge, unwavering positive attitude and the enthusiasm that he brings to everything he does.

Eric has been on ski-mountaineering expeditions to Alaska, Everest, China’s Altai Mountains and has skied many notable lines in the Tetons. Hende has over twenty years of outdoor experience from the field to the boardroom. As an internationally-known outdoor marketer and communications leader, Hende is noted for insightful strategies, innovative execution and building community across multiple channels and touch-points. When he’s not skiing, you can find Hende ridings bikes on mountain trails around his Boulder house, puttering in the garden with his wife, or playing with his three kids.
