During his senior year at Colorado College, Alex Fenlon set out to find the perfect, “real” ski town. He visited Crested Butte, Colorado, loved it and has been there for 18 blissful years. Did we mention he also has his dream job?
Fenlon grew up in Appleton, Wisconsin where rope tows on garbage hills were the norm. He migrated west for college, skied frequently along I-70 and graduated with a BA in Photography. During his early years in Crested Butte, he managed to juggle everything from barista to radio host to newspaper photographer. He was trained well at the Crested Butte News, photographing everything from skiing and sports to festivals and day-to-day happenings.
Today, Fenlon is the Director of Visual Media at Eleven Experience where he captures everything from culture and people to skiing, culinary experiences, architecture, landscapes and lifestyle photos. He frequents France, Iceland, Chile, the Bahamas, Amsterdam and Shelter Island, but loves to be at home in Crested Butte with his two girls.
