Paul Jacobs

Growing up on the east coast, Paul mastered carving at a young age. Utilizing expertise in the backcountry, Paul began a career at Marmot Mountain Works, where he helped skiers from all over the world gather the best knowledge and equipment available. After Marmot’s unfortunate closing, he found California Ski Company where he has become head bootfitter and backcountry master. He loves to spend his time getting back into the wilderness, climbing, hiking and, of course, skiing. These days if not bootfitting, he’s usually cruising around Alpine or effortlessly ripping Mammoth.
