  • Gen Kaneko

    Growing up skiing the east coast since I was three my love for skiing has no bounds and to compliment that is my passion and knowledge of gear. My passion is in the powder and backcountry however teaching and skiing over 100 days in the past couple years has allowed me to become a well rounded skier and person no matter where on the mountain. I have been a ski instructor for 3 years having spent seasons in Japan, New Zealand, and the USA. Skiing throughout the US and abroad has given me an opportunity learn and test gear that I have grown to love as it allows me to do what I love. I hope to bring my knowledge of teaching and gear to help you have the right gear for the best experience possible.

    I am curently doing a masters in Sports Product Management and enjoying the outdoors in every way possible until the winter begins.

    What a great experience
    Gen was great to work with. Very patient. I was able to pull some information from my skis which took a little bit and still get a quick response. A very comfortable experience.

    Mandy's experience with Gen
    I had no idea what to buy. This was so helpful. I needed inexpensive skis, as I have 3 kids who ski also and I feel like I got a good pair of skis at a good price.
