David Polivy is the co-owner of Tahoe Mountain Sports (TMS), a specialty outdoor store headquartered in Truckee, CA. He moved to Truckee in 2001 after graduating with a Geosciences degree from Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY. David started his business as an e-commerce operation but quickly realized a brick and mortar store was needed as customer demand to see, touch and play with the unique product assortment soared. Dave’s first store was in Kings Beach, CA where he was a board member for the North Tahoe Business Association and served on the North Tahoe Regional Advisory Council. As a former program manager at the Sierra Business Council, he understands how important it is that the natural, economic and social aspects of our communities work in unison to achieve success.
Dave’s involvement in the community continues with Board positions on local non-profits, state and national positions with the Outdoor Industry Association and formerly on the Truckee Planning Commission. Dave, his wife Pam, and daughter Adina love to play outside and enjoy skiing, climbing, mountain biking, hiking, and camping. Dave and his family enjoy exploring all the amazing places in and around the Sierra, and he looks forward to serving on the Town Council and helping our community prosper and grow sustainably.
