Upper Valley Connection

Jason Crance grew up in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, but his connection to the Upper Valley began early as his family had a seasonal home near Okemo Mountain, so he was a frequent visitor to the region. While an undergraduate at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, he spent many weekends making the trip north as he developed his passion for outdoor sports and the diverse terrain the Upper Valley has to offer. Jason resides in Fairlee, Vermont, and is the proud father of triplet daughters whom are budding outdoor enthusiasts in their own right.
