Job Description

The Ute Mountaineer is seeking an Assistant Manager and Sales Associates for the Summer.

We are people who love the outdoors and want to help customers by matching their needs with the equipment we know and use. Full time preferred.

Ute History and Philosophy

The idea for the Ute was born in Boulder, Colorado. As a geology major at the University of Colorado, climbing allowed, both in the mountains and on the crags, the ultimately intimacy with rocks! While in school, I worked for one of the great visionaries in climbing and the climbing business, Bob Culp, who owned the Boulder Mountaineer. After college (recuperating from a climbing injury), while running a small general store on the North shore of Kauai, Bob contacted me with an offer to join him in opening a shop in Aspen – something we had daydreamed about while climbing together in Europe the previous summer. So with Bob providing most of the finances and wisdom and me providing elbow grease and youthful naiveté, the Boulder Mountaineer in Aspen opened. In order to afford the high rents (in 1976, it’s all relative!), we took an office space downstairs next to what is now Su Casa.

We opened our doors on April Fool’s day, 1977, just as Aspen was closing out its worst ski season in history. Needless to say, word on the street was that we wouldn’t make it. But we were small and lived frugally. Volunteering our time and expertise to help Aspen Public School outdoor programs helped our credibility and created goodwill for us. The local climbing community was very gracious in accepting us ‘outsiders’. We moved to our location on the mall across from Wagner Park back in 1980. In pre-mall days this was the home of the old bus and taxi station in town. Our last move to our current location in the Elks building was in 2010. Our location was the home of the Aspen Post Office in the 40’s and 50’s and Tom’s Market in the 60’s and 70’s – a great heritage to a place we hope to call home for a long-time
