Real Estate Agent

Born and raised in downtown Steamboat Springs, Ben spent his childhood at Howelsen Hill dreaming of someday competing in the Winter Olympics. A member of the US Ski Team for five years, Ben made 24 World Cup starts and competed in multiple World Championships. He represented the United States in the 2018 Winter Olympics, becoming one of 96 Olympians from Steamboat Springs dating back to 1948.

After realizing his Olympic dream, Ben chased his future wife to the University of New Mexico where he earned his BA in Media and Journalism. While in Albuquerque, Ben raced for the UNM Ski Team, becoming a team captain and D-1 Academic All American. GO LOBOS!

Before getting into real estate, Ben was the Marketing Director for USA Nordic where he focused on building strong foundational partnerships within the Olympic and outdoor industry. Unable to shake the Yampa Valley Curse, Ben returned to Steamboat Springs to join the Boyd Team at Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty, one of the top producing teams in the valley.

Ben comes from a family in the custom home business and understands the importance of the ideal space. He brings his driven approach and local knowledge to the Boyd Team and aims to not only navigate his clients through successful transactions, but to create an experience that is cherished for years to come.

Ben takes pride in his involvement within the Steamboat community and serves on the Parks and Recreation Commission, volunteers as a ski coach at the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, and leads Olympic Heritage Tours at Howelsen Hill during the summers.

Outside of work, Ben can be found backcountry skiing, mountain biking, gravel biking, or enjoying Maestros at Storm Peak Brewing.
