    Ski expert with a passion for floaty powder, backcountry yurt trips, and shiny new gear.

    I learned to ski when I was 3, cruising around the PNW ski resorts with my twin sister. I owe my ski skills to my uncle, and my sense of adventure to my father, who let the mountain be my babysitter while he ripped the steeps. By the time I had my driver's license, there was no stopping me on a powder day.

    I moved to Utah for better snow and, after bumping chairs for a season, knew there were bigger things out there for me. Within a couple years I had became both the manager of a backcountry ski yurt and a rental shop. In the meantime, I'd been taking full advantage of the backcountry access, and my touring experience gave way to snow research gigs in Utah and Yosemite NP. I'm now in Montana in search of better beer and new mountains. You'll find me up here patrolling and touring the backcountry with my pup.

    For me, skiing is what makes the cold, dark, winters something to be celebrated. I'm stoked to share my knowledge with skiers both new to the sport and veterans looking for a second opinion.

    very patient and helpful
    I am a long-time telemark skier who reverted to alpine a few years ago, and was now looking for a BC setup. I knew that Casey worked for an on-line ski outfit, and asked her for her help picking out skis and touring bindings that would suit the way I ski. It took several days of guided research and a number of zigs and zags on my part, but we finally arrived at a combination that made sense to both of us. Casey initially pointed me in what she thought was the right direction and was patient with me as I worked my way through the decision making process and ultimately realized that her initial recommendations were pretty much on the money! Thanks for all your help, Casey!!!

    Great advice!
    Casey helped me find the right all-mountain skis and bindings for my son, who is a ski racer. We fully understand the race ski world, but all-mountain skis are a different beast. Casey asked me a ton of questions to best understand my son and his needs and his ability as a skier. She is SO knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. I couldn’t recommend her more highly and truly trust her professional opinion in finding anyone what they need on the mountain. A+ customer service experience.

    Casey was great
    I am 65 and have been skiing for 45 years. I was about to quit skiing but Casey understood my foot pain and needs for less aggressive and more comfortable equipment. Her recommendations were exactly related to what we discussed. She did the research, answered a questions almost immediately and I felt very comfortable and that prices were good and honest. I am so happy with her service and now hope to ski for many more years on my new equipment
