Former U.S. Ski Team technician Jared Hawn has been with Podium tune shop since it opened in 2012. At age 14 is when Jared’s passion began, and it has since developed into a lifelong career. He enjoys the feedback of his work and loves helping out racers and their parents with tune clinics and wax calls. “Education in this sport is key, and I am always willing to dispense knowledge. I truly believe we have the best staff around.” Jared is passionate about all the outdoor activities Colorado offers, especially flyfishing.

Hunter is originally from Oxford, Michigan, but has lived in Summit County, Colorado, for the past year. Before arriving, he spent six years running the service center at Viking Ski Shop in Chicago, Illinois. In the summer, you can find him mountain biking on the trails, and walking aggressively up all the ridges and trails he can find. During the winter season, Hunter can be found grinding skis and polishing edges in Podium’s state-of-the-art Service Center when he’s not chasing steep lines at Arapahoe Basin.
Johnny is originally from Los Alamos, New Mexico, and has been living in Breckenridge, Colorado, for the last few years. In the summer, you can find him mountain biking on the trails or fixin’ it through town on my track bike! In the winter, if he’s not at the shop, he’s droppin’ knees on Telemark skis! “At Podium Sports, my goal is to ensure that everyone who comes through the door leaves with the tools they need to succeed in the sports they love!”
