Snowboard Expert Ben Houghton
  • Ben Houghton

    Hi there! My name is Ben Houghton and I am a 26-year-old graduate student who lives and breathes snow. I have been snowboarding for over 10 years and skiing on-and-off since I was 11, which has taken me from the small slopes of New Hampshire to the massive resorts of Utah. Beaver Mountain in northern Utah is a hidden gem of a resort and is my home away from home. I've had lots of opportunities to help others learn to snowboard, and nothing brightens my day like seeing someone truly learn to enjoy the sport!

    I write and produce music (guitar, piano, bass, lyrics, the whole shebang) and have had the opportunity to work with some pretty amazing artists. All things Boston are near and dear to my heart, especially the Boston Celtics. I study social work at Weber State University and am looking forward to a career in clinical therapy.

    I look forward to working with people throughout the country as they get access to gear that will magnify their love for the outdoors!

    Ben is simply the best!
    Ben was personable, friendly, patient, and super responsive. He helped guide me away from some boards that likely wouldn't have been the right fit for my skill level. Really excited for my new gear to get here and feel confident it'll be right for me after working with Ben!

    Buying a snowboard and boots for my beginner daughter, and very unsure of where to start. Ben was absolutely amazing! So helpful, and so very patient with my many questions and hesitation to make a final purchase. I will definitely be returning for an upgrade purchase once my daughter out grows her new board! Thank you again!

    Man spent 4 hours helping me
    Ben spent 4 hours with me to make sure that I got the best board possible. He knew the answer to every question I threw at him and helped me understand what I want. If not for Ben I would have bought a snowboard with lots of hesitation but he made everything easy. Thanks Ben, I’ll be back.

    Benjamin is a legend!
    I’m lucky enough that I got match with Benjamin and boy he didn’t disappoint at all! Don’t be fooled by his age, he knows his stuff A LOT. He helped me find my new board, my new boots and also helped with my bindings. He’s friendly, and even answered when he was not supposed to be online! You can tell he does the job because he loves it and loves snowboarding. Great customer service!
