Pete Happy


Pete grew up in Troutdale, Oregon and joined the Navy after high school. He spent five years as a backseater in the S-3 Viking (112 traps on the USS Enterprise and 700+ hours of flight time). After finishing his enlistment in 2001, Pete moved back to Oregon and obtained his BS in Psychology from the University of Oregon. After college, Pete went to work for Target, specializing in logistics and moved to the Gorge in 2008 to work for Mt. Hood Meadows. He held various positions on the leadership team in his ten years there, which served as an excellent primer to opening ProShine in 2013. Pete left Mt. Hood Meadows in 2017 to focus on developing ProShine.

When he is not working, Pete enjoys spending his free time with his three kids, Ethan (21), Eli (19), Zoey (5), and his wife, Monica. Together, they enjoy traveling, snowboarding, wake surfing, camping, and music.
