Like many, my wife Michele and I came to ski Schweitzer in the late 70s and stayed. Over the years we have built "Bearpaw Ranch," home to our Haflinger stallion, and a small herd of Haflinger and Arabian mares. See them at www.bearpawranch.net. After a full career in high-technology manufacturing management I became a professional REALTOR®, a career I find truly enjoyable. My Industrial Management Career, being a Rancher, and a Professional REALTOR®, all give me an appreciation and knowledge of this beautiful country and the technical skills to provide top-notch customer service.
