It all started in 2005 when Dave Jenkins asked me to help with grooming.  After spending several weeks grooming, Dave suggested in his kindest voice “Alan you should take up crosscountry skiing, so that you can understand what good grooming looks like”. With that gentle nudge, I started a love for skiing and beautiful corduroy.

In 2015, I decided to try that “stupid” fatbiking thing to prove how dangerous it was to skiers and destructive it was to the trails. Fortunately, neither were true and I became hooked. Since then I have spearheaded the building of 10+ miles of multi-use trails at North Fork. 

Since 2005 I have moved through most of the board positions including a 4 year stint as president. The organization has grown in the last 15+ years into a world class fatbiking and skiing destination. Fortunately you can still find the moments when you are skiing/fatbiking by yourself with perfect corduroy and all the hard work is worth it!

Jerome is an active outdoor enthusiast and grateful resident of Ogden for the past 15 years.  I really enjoy being with like minded people and support several volunteer positions for the betterment of non-motorized trails in and around Ogden.  When the ground is dry, you’ll find me hiking, biking, and running throughout our vast network of trails.  When the snow is flying, you’ll most likely find me at North Fork supporting our other great volunteers while also trying to improve my skating technique.  I’m now working an initiative to assess North Fork trail usage through a series of counters so we can better plan and support your trails.  And although I prefer skis to fat tires, I always look forward to winter so I can help groom our ever growing network of Fat Bike trails.
