Meet Our Team

Clayton Andrews
Clayton loves being outdoors and checking out new gear. He never leaves home without his boots, be it skiing or hiking. Born in Arizona, studied in Washington, Clayton eventually found himself in good ol’ Portland, Oregon. In 2007 Clayton began working at the Mountain Shop and his claim to fame is his amazing boot fitting abilities. After a boot fitting session with Clayton you will swear those ski boots you just purchased are actually slippers that you never want to take off.
