Alex Suckling - Sales Manager
Abbott grew up skiing Sugarloaf mountain in Maine. He spent most of his formal education doodling pictures of skis and snowy mountains in his notebooks. He dragged his fingers along the railings and banisters of his prep school pretending they were the legs of a tiny, talented skier. At the University of Colorado he majored in Creative Writing and Political Science while becoming intimately familiar with the mid week traffic patterns of Interstate 70. Upon graduation he packed up his Subaru and moved to Jackson Hole where he worked at the Valley Bookstore, Eddie Bower, Headwall Sports, and as a line cook, busser, food runner, server, and bartender for the Fine Dining group. All of these jobs helped Abbott rack up ski days and pay for expensive sandwiches amidst the glitz and glamour of Jackson Hole. With his job at Sego and new residence in Victor, Idaho he has found more reasonably priced sandwiches and a job that allows his hobby to harmoniously intersect with employment. Abbott is an enthusiastic Sales Representative, Ski Craftsman and occasional contributor to Unofficial Networks. He hopes that skiing Grand Targhee will be just what he needs to foster one more year of alpine skiing in telemark boots so he can proudly drop knees under the chairlift and have an excuse to avoid the terrain park.
Matt Furney - Production Manager and Sales Rep
I started skiing at age 2 in Vermont. I'm the oldest sibling in my family, with three younger sisters all of whom were extremely successful ski racers themselves. I started skiing at Cochran's ski area in Richmond Vermont, the only non-profit ski area in the country. and started racing at the age of 5. I raced through high school and skied Div I in college before moving to Jackson after graduation. I coached ski racing and helped run the Race Department at Jackson Hole Ski Club for the first 5 years after college. In 2010 I went to Whistler to help run the men's alpine events at the Vancouver Olympics. I stopped coaching for a few years and started repping for a ski company. I continued to work as a rep and took over the big mountain Freeride program at Targhee as the head coach. I broke my neck winter of 2014 and stopped coaching that spring. I've worked on and off for TGR for a few years, before coming to Sego.
