Cathy Quaglia and her husband Lee moved to Killington, Vermont in 1975, and founded Aspen East Ski Shop, which has evolved from a small ski tuning and repair shop to a full service retail business. Cathy also taught skiing those early years as a PSIA certified instructor, then became a broker with The Performance Group Real Estate, during Killington resort's growth years and real estate development. SKI Magazine named Aspen East a Top Shop in the country year after year, and at the SnowSports Industry Association Trade Show, Aspen East was twice awarded the Gold Medal for Best Ski Shop in the Northeast. Adding Surf the Earth Snowboards to the mix, two online stores, and building their new 9,800 square foot store, still doesn't stop them from getting out on the mountain mid-week to enjoy the snow. With summers off, they have been coming to Maui to windsurf for over 25 years, investing in an ocean-view Haiku home in 2007. They met Josh Stone on the beach at Hookipa, and Cathy now brings her real estate expertise and enthusiasm from the mountains to the sea.
