Snowboard Expert Benjamin Pearson
Catching some air at Mt. Hood Meadows resort!
  • Benjamin Pearson

    Ever since I can remember, I've been at the mountain. I picked up snowboarding when I was 11 years old after retiring from skiis, and I haven't missed a season since. I was a member of a couple of snowboarding teams throughout middle school, and in high school I devoted every weekend in the winter to going to the mountain with my close friend. Spending 8+ hours a day on the slope was a part of my weekly routine, and I still daydream about going to the mountain every day I'm not there!

    I have owned, rented, and demo-ed tons of different brands, and types of snowboarding equipment. In my free time I read articles about new equipment, watch and read gear reviews, and try new gear myself when I can.

    This season I've been going to the mountain every Thursday, and weekends when it isn't expected to be too busy! Looking forward to Spring for that t-shirt weather, all-day riding!

    Benjamin is the best :)
    He gave me a great range of options, not just the high end expensive ones and when I expressed concern over affordability he immediately started looking on their websites to price match and lower the cost for me. Such a friendly, knowledgeable guy and he gave such good recommendations it was as if we’d been friends for years, he was recommending such perfect choices! As a petite girl I struggle finding boards I like that fit me but also aren’t bright pink and blue. It was no obstacle for Benjamin!! Thank you so much 😊

    Ben’s the man!
    Ben made my first experience buy snowboarding equipment a breeze! He was super approachable, knowledgeable, and gave great recommendations. When is asked for a more thorough breakdown comparison of boards he gave me all the necessary deets. He also supplied me with more options upon request since some of the items had sold out. From the beginning he was super friendly and easy to chat with. He was great with checking in and even price matched a board for me. I’d definitely reach out to Ben in the future for any future purchases.

    Great Buying Experience
    I've had a lot of questions as an intermediate snowboarder about what board and bindings I should ride. Benjamin was very knowledgeable about each products I asked him about and was very quick to respond. Hard to find customer service like this in person, much less online, as Benjamin offered over this website. I feel like I can still ask Benjamin any further questions I might have in the future as well!

    Knowledgeable and easy going
    Originally came to the site to test out expert recommendations. I was pleasantly surprised with Benjamin’s knowledge as well as ability to answer my questions and repeatedly edit recommendations. I settled on a board that we had not discussed. However, board availability (stock) played the largest role in my decision. New Ride Warpig is on its way and should be here next week! Thanks again.

    Benjamin was very friendly and funny from the start. I am not new to snowboarding i’ve been doing it for 4+ years and decided it was time to get a board. He helped me pick out the board,bindings,and the boots over the course of a few days. He was really helpful and gave me his top recommendations to where i would be most comfortable!

    Benjamin is the absolute best. He was so good at listening and taking feedback to find gear that was right for my family. He was crazy-fast responsive and even texted me from the mountain. I highly recommend him and his snowboarding expertise and we love the gear!

    Experienced Help
    He was very helpful and was able to give the right suggestions and options without overloading you with too much. He seemed very knowledgeable and had very quick responses. A very friendly attitude and gave me the best price possible on the equipment I needed on items very difficult to find elsewhere. Their retail prices beat everything I saw online and on top of that he was able to work an even lower price and kept me well within my budget. Thanks Benjamin!!
