About Bryan Steele

Mountain Man for Life


Simple, authentic and genuine define Bryan.  With a passion for life, Bryan  has escaped the trappings of city life and opted to live in nature where he finds inspiration  on a daily basis.  Bryan lives and works in Tahoe and is happily married to his love, Karen and their famous cat Meowzers.  

In Winter, Bryan is a long-time Snow Cat operator formerly at Heavenly for nine years, and now at Sierra Mountain Resort.  His incredible skill and talent have allowed him to winch cat and groom some of the most popular (and treacherous) mountains in the US.  

Snow Cat & Winch Cat Operator


When most of us go to sleep on a cold winter night, Bryan is on the mountain, at times enduring winds of 100 mph to lead crews to groom the mountain so skiers stay safe and have the experience of a lifetime.

In Summer


During the summer, you will most likely find Bryan on the golf course, fine-tuning his PGA level golf skills to bring the worldwide championship to Tahoe Paradise Golf Club.
