Meet the Team

It's not a job, it's a lifestyle.

Where know-how and stoke meet, Habitat is a team of riders, bikers, and tech nuts that have a passion for helping you get the most out of your time outdoors.

  • Mitch
    Mitch General Manager

    Mitch moved to the Tetons in a loaded down 76 Lincoln with suicide doors and 300 bucks.  Somewhere along the way, a vision took place forming from years of experience in the outdoor retail world. And thankfully for Teton Valley, that vision created Habitat and fires it up again every day. Rooted in Passion and Stoke for the outdoors from mountain biking, fly fishing, and backcountry snowboarding to living this unique lifestyle day after day, Mitch fuels the fire and passes it along to each and every member of this shop. Believe us, the passion and stoke runs deep.

  • Kelly
    Kelly Back Of The House

    From the wide open spaces of Oklahoma to the rugged mountains of Wydaho, thank goodness Kelly Williams made it here! Kelly Williams has made such a great contribution to this shop. Some might say he’s the oil that makes it all run smoothly. Kelly maintains the control panel here and rolls out of the office with his unmatched product knowledge putting a smile on everyone’s face.

  • Micheal Woodruff
    Micheal Woodruff Tech Wizard

    Every mountain town has one. You don’t know if he’s 36 or 63. The local legend born and raised in the mountains. Michael Woodruff is that man, and he is a vital part of the Habitat crew in regards to not only his mechanical skill, but humor as well. When he is not out racking up miles bikepacking through the Rockies, you will find him at the Habitat Mountain shop at Grand Targhee. If there is only one man you want touching your bike, skis, or snowboard, Michael is that man.

  • Troy
    Troy Tech Gnar

    Sometimes the “work hard, play hard” guy finds a way to work in the outdoor retail world. From the very beginning, it has been Troy Olson who stands behind our shop counter every day tuning bikes and entertaining each and every customer with his charm and personality. Troy’s passion for mountain bike racing, trail riding and tuning are truly one-of-a-kind.

  • Marinna
    Marinna Buyer / Sales

    Marinna is a gem in our mountain town! She brings her artistic background to this shop and lays out her awesome work throughout the shop in the form of the latest and most stylish casual and tech clothing for women. As our women’s softgoods buyer, she keeps the shop fresh and alive. For our 10th anniversary she painted a tribute to 10 years of living the dream on our walls. Stop by and take a look.

  • Joel
    Joel Technician & Boot Fitter

    Joel showed up ready and willing to jump in head first to Teton Valley living. We gave him a job and he turned it into a lifestyle. Joel puts his passion for this lifestyle into every pro boot fit, custom foot bed, or the pro tune on your pow sticks.
