Chris Ennis
Chris is our sales representative for the Pacific Northwest region of the U.S. He started his career in the outdoor industry paddling around the world racing whitewater slalom.  After moving to Montana he realized the fun of a good multisport day and is now a “jack of all trades, master of none” sort of guy.  He is equally adept at finding his skis after a yard sale on a powder day as he is retrieving his fly from the trees after an errant back cast- and smiling during both because he’s out of the office and having fun.
