Hey there! My name is Julie. I left the suburbs of Chicago in 2012 in search of something different. Once I moved out to Colorado, I found a deep love for this planet. I studied Environment and Sustainability at Western State Colorado University in Gunnison, which is only a 30 minute drive down-valley from Crested Butte. Moving to the mountains introduced me to a lifestyle of ease, enjoyment and exploration. In my free time I enjoy hiking, rafting, napping, and collecting crystals. Since becoming a Budtender at BCC, I have learned so much about the cannabis industry and take pleasure enlightening others about it.

Hey! My name is Ginger and I have the honor of managing at BCC in Crested Butte. I have always been a lover of nature, adventure, and music. The Arkansas Ozarks are where I first discovered the glorious woods, rocks, and rivers of the back country, but moving to Colorado has introduced a whole new world of plants, precipitation and wildlife! It is such a treat to have access to the miles on miles of mountain terrain that surrounds CB. I admit I still have to pinch myself in those moments when mountain lifestyle really hits me- I get paid to share cannabis with the world!
My name is Parker and I'm the General Manager of Backcountry Cannabis Co. in Crested Butte. I have lived in Crested Butte for 6 years and feel lucky everyday I get to call this place my home. I'm married to a beautiful woman named Amber and together we have the best dog in the world named Lilly, who is usually at the store with me. I have an intense passion for cannabis, as well as the culture that surrounds it, that is only surpassed by my passion for the outdoors. I prefer to spend my free time kayaking, rafting, hiking, skiing, and mountain biking, and strongly feel that the experiences I have had in the backcountry have contributed to the person I am today. I was once told that if you do what you love, you'll never feel like you've worked a day in your life. I am lucky enough to say that statement applies to me and the work we do here at Backcountry Cannabis Co.
