Ski Expert Bret M.
  • Bret M.

    I was born in Vail and raised in Breckenridge, CO by a 40+year Breckenridge Resort ski instructor. I have been skiing since he was 18 months old. One of my early days on the mountain is documented in my profile pictures! After joining the local ski race team, I perfected my technique and grew an understanding of the sport. In High School I joined the local freestyle team and began mastering a whole new style of skiing. The better part of my 20's were spent pursuing a career as a professional snowsports athlete and brand embassedor while working in local shops along the way.

    I've spent the majority life scattered around Colorado but have also lived in Tahoe City, CA, Truckee, CA and Excelsoir, MN. Now back in Breckenridge for the past six years where I ski and ride as often as possible! Other hobbies include hockey, snowmobiling, snowboarding, nordic skiing, skateboarding, mortorcycling, boating, and camping. Traveling to new places and exploring new opportunities in life and my career are some of my top goals.

    I have worked every resort job from busser to bartender, ticket scanner to ski instructor, and bootfitter to sales manager. Now I'm also a fully licensed Realtor and enjoy helping clients find the resort property and ski gear that's just right for them. Throughout my 15+ year career in the snowsports industry, I've worked in several positions including rental technician, tune shop manager, retail sales director, management, and even brand representative. During this time I learned an extensive knowledge of everything ski and snowboard. Now a Curated Expert I am constantly working to stay educated on the latest trends and improvements in the industry. From materials, contruction, and fit, to top sheet artwork and performance - I have the knowledge and expertise to guide any outdoor enthusiast toward the correct gear for their adventures!

    Didn't start with a ton of specific needs/wants for Bret, but he worked with me to sort through a few rounds of options, honing in. Super quick response time as well.
