Answer a few quick questions to get started with Aaron
  • Aaron Bandler

    I am an outdoor professional who started skiing at age 4, and I haven't missed a season. I've been skiing longer than I've been doing just about anything else, and have filled my winters with racing, ski-bumming, and multiweek winter backcountry expeditions. I've personally experienced the innovations and developments that have occured in the ski industry over the years, and can answer all your questions and give you personally relevant explanations of ski-industry jargon like "side-cut", "rocker", and my personal favorite: "torsional rigidity". I put my own gear through the ringer and I use every piece of it for its entire lifespan. This stuff is expensive and you want to get your money's worth!

    I have helped many people get the right gear, whether that be brand new beginners looking to make their initial purchases, intermediates trying to get to the next level without killing their bank account, and advanced skiers looking to branch out into new terrain like the backcountry. I love connecting with people over skiing and am happy to spend time discussing your ideal setup!

    Aaron spent a significant amount of time working with me. He made sure to listen to my interests, desired price range, and provided a variety of options for me. He was also very patient and answered any & all questions I had, while providing his knowledge & perspective to help steer my decision. There was a small issue with my order, and Aaron was very thorough in his follow up, to ensure we found a resolution that I was satisfied with. He rocks, and he will take care of you during this process.

    Totally understood what I was looking for.
    Based on the ideas I shared with him, Aaron provided me with a list of several options aside from ones I had already looked at. His description/review of each ski provided a good means to narrow down my search and find what I was looking for.

    Aaron was super helpful
    I had originally purchased a pair of used skis through another website. When I discussed what I bought and the price I paid, he was able to give a way better deal for better skis and NEW! No brainer!
