Mike Tracy has worked in skiing for three decades, starting in the mid-eighties at Everett Ski Shop, then moving to Mt Pilchuck Ski and Sport, Seattle Ski and Snowboard and now ProSki Seattle as co-owner with John.
As a season pass holder and avid turns-all-year guy he logs 40 to 50 days a year at Stevens Pass and in the backcountry. His signature move is a Big Air Daffy, hence the nick name BAD Tracy (as well as Big Bird, The Mayor, and That-Really-Loud-Guy).
A very experienced and highly-trained bootfitter (3 x Masterfit University, 2 x Superfeet Master Clinics, Mt Hood Super Tune Clinic, Whistler/Blackcomb Soza Boot Camp) he will do everything in his power to get you onto a good footbed and into a boot that fits. When not on the mountain he enjoys golf, backpacking and vitamin D.
John started skiing long ago. His skis were made of wood and his poles were bamboo. His mittens were made from brontosaurus hides and didn’t have thumbs because no one had thought of that yet. He broke every pair of hand-me-down skis his parents provided, earning him a life-long appreciation of good equipment as well as thanks from his little sister who got to ski on new stuff. He’s attended the Masterfit University boot-fitting clinic two times, but insists that he didn’t flunk the first time. His first career was in software but he’s over that now except for a minor spreadsheet addiction. He’s not fond of birds but loves cats as well as cat skiing.
Trent Kaivo passed away December 10, 2014 at the age of 36, after a two-year battle with leukemia. Trent was the driving force behind the purchase of ProSki; it would have never happened without him. He was a true friend and a great business partner. We miss him every day.
