About Us


Sawatch Automotive Services is a small business, owned and operated by a local guy with deep roots in the Vail Valley and a commitment to quality work and small town service.

Ian Talbot was born and raised in Eagle Vail. After college, Ian moved back to Eagle County because he knew he wanted to start his career in and give back to the community that had given so much to him.

Ian opened Sawatch Automotive Services in 2016, and he recruited a few skilled and hardworking mechanics to join the business. Through SAS, they are doing what they love and what they’re good at, all while contributing to the local economy and supporting their families in the community they’ve always called home.
