Montana Treasures // Big Sky with Tom Owen
Tom Owen has owned and operated Gallatin Alpine Sports in Big Sky, Montana for 31 years. Through the retail world, he shares his love for mountain bikes and the opportunities to explore public lands with everyone who walks into his shop.
Every mountain bike community has its individuals who are constantly striving to progress the sport. Be it trail building, advocacy, land management or retail, every avenue is an equally important part of creating a thriving movement.
Montana Treasures is a series about a few of the many people who embody the state’s greater mountain bike scene through their actions and endeavors.
