  • Ron Jacques

    Ron Jacques

    Owner

    Ron is a co-owner of the business and keeps the online machine running behind the scenes. He's always thinking about that next great idea. While most of the crew is working on summer tans, Ron is pushing buttons and pulling knobs to make sure your online buying experience is a breeze. When he's not racer chasing his kids on the hill, he can be seen ripping up the mountains all over western Maine. He prides himself in getting in as many days on the hill as possible. Who can argue with that? Not us.

  • Kenny Jacques

    Owner

    Kenny owns the shop with his brother Ron. While Ron keeps the site rolling along, Kenny is "the voice" of The Depot (there's always one brother who can't shut up) and takes care of the operations and communications side of things. Kenny is a lifelong ski racer/coach who loves making "figure 11's" all day long on a pair of GS rockets. In his spare time, during the summer months, he is an avid lawn mower and thoroughly enjoys giving tours around the pond on the party barge.
