  • Hayden Wright

    I grew up in Alaska loving the outdoors. I became hooked on skiing at a very young age and haven't looked back. I enjoy skiing deep pillows in the backcountry and enjoying the terrain parks. I am always pushing myself to progress. I love meeting new people and am always the most stoked person in the room or the gondi. I moved to Denver, CO in 2016 and have been enjoying the Rockies ever since. I still try and get home often to enjoy the steep and deep snow in AK. I have been lucky enough to have traveled all over the world to ski!! Lets chat skis and get you dialed in for a fun winter!!

    No pressure, Easy process!
    First time using a website like this and it was nice to get personalized recs and videos. I didn’t feel pressured to buy even when I took a few days to research what I wanted and even when I thought the initial recs weren’t right for me, Hayden was quick to listen and send new options. Excited to get out and hit the slopes with my new gear!

    Highly recommend working with Hayden!
    Hayden was beyond helpful when it came to finding an entire ski set up for this winter - skis, bindings, boots, poles. Extremely responsive, great to work with, and feel really confident about the set up Hayden curated for me. Can’t wait to hit the slopes with my new rig. Huge thanks Hayden!

    Hayden was a huge help!
    I wanted a new pair of skis and really had no idea what I wanted or really needed. Hayden was very knowledgeable and got me hooked up with exactly what I needed. It was great having an expert to bounce questions off of while dealing with the indecision that comes with making a purchase like this.

    Hayden is the Bomb!
    It was very cool to talk to a ski shop pro right from my home. It like having your own personal ski concierge. He follows up and follows through even after the sale. I will definitely be talking with Hayden again in the future whenever I have specific questions about my ski gear. 10 out of 10!

    Hayden was a great help!
    I've been skiing for years, using rentals my whole life. Coming into this, I did not have much knowledge on the measurements of what to buy and which brands were the best. Hayden was very patient with all of my questions and priced matched me accordingly. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking to start buying their first skis, or looking to upgrade as he is very knowledgable in this area!

    Darren's experience with Hayden
    So I guess I'll start with I live 2 hours from the nearest shop and then I'd have to pay jacked up prices just because it's Lake Placid. My current k2 Amp 80x's that I bought probably 7 years ago have finally officially become rock skis;as all good skis are apt to do. Since then I was in a car wreck that shattered (shidoobie) my pelvis and left me with a bunch of metal,14 screws,and a nail on my left side. It leaves me with a harder time to make left turns. I lack a lot of strength on that side and have to think to make turns that way. This past season 3 years post said accident I started to get back to skiing more aggressively and am back in the trees again! Because of the time it takes to process the need to turn and then get my body to engage I'm like .5-1 seconds slower to compute and complete which when in the woods can be like French frying when your supposed to pizza. I'm on 177's now and in my mind if I went shorter it would help compensate for some of that lag. Being a tall guy he made recommendations to not go much shorter than I'm at now because we talked enough for him to know that it would rob me on my primary style of bombing groomers. I was hoping to be able to go down to a 168. He reached out to another colleague to get their input and it was agreed to be too short. Which was a little sad to hear because I found a SICK deal on a pair of Nordica Dobermans I had planned to buy before I had started talking with him. I was also holding out hope that I was going to get my hands on discounted pair from a friend's uncle who works at one of the manufacturers so I hadn't fully committed to the sale yet. Few days go by and Hayden,like the great American he is as you see in his profile picture,reaches out to me to let me know that their black Friday sale has started and if I'm still interested my bride will yell at me 20% less! And now you know the story of how I got my next Rock skis

    I’ve skied my entire life and have a good knowledge of what I want and need for equipment. With that said it helps to have someone with more knowledge that can help figure out what gear works best for you. Had multiple conversations with Hayden about different equipment and he gave me good insight about strengths and weaknesses that I was potentially buying. He also helped me find information about my ski boots and fitting certain bindings that I couldn’t find anywhere else online. Highly recommend Hayden, great to work with and friendly!
