  • Chris C

    A lifelong skier and outdoor enthusiast. Former Junior Olympic Ski Racer turned Big Mountain Powder lover. Skiing is my passion, & love spreading that stoke to others. I spent a decade in the Wasatch and even had the pleasure of coaching the stars of Alta Freeride for 3 winters. I also had the pleasure of managing a family-owned and family FIRST ski shop for multiple years. This is where the love of gear and getting other skiers dialed was born.

    After growing up in the Big Mountains of Montana (Go Griz), I have ventured west. Traveling to the slushy parks in California, and now currently reside in the PNW skiing the Cascades. Nothing better than sneaking across the border to the best place on earth or head south for some waves and stoke birds. Here to help you find what you are looking for at the best price. Nothing better than spreading the love! Let it Snow!

    Chris is great!
    Quick and knowledgable. Started conversations with Chris last year when looking to upgrade. Never pulled the trigger, but saw a great deal and picked back up our discussion this year before midwest snowfall. Super easy and would recommend to anyone looking for some expert advice.

    Chris's experience and understanding of Skiing is unmatched
    Chris had prompt and concise answers to all of my questions. We exchanged quite a few messages over a few days and he provided excellent options to sift through for boots, bindings, and skis. He was easy to talk to, positive, and I could tell how genuinely excited he was for me to find the right equipment - allowing me to learn quite a bit through the process. I will definitely be going back to him for future equipment exploration!!

    Nick's experience with Chris
    Chris had a very clear and concise answer to every question I asked and clearly has lots of experience to pull from. Was a joy to talk with and learn from. Went into the process not expecting to buy but he had every bit of info and then some that I could ask for so will definitely be using him again for skis in the future!

    Chris Really helped me out
    It went great, great help with a decently low budget, got some recommendations that I liked. Responded quickly and was friendly and chill. Even though I didn't make a purchase today, it was not because of him, just on a budget and saving, he recommended sending him links so that he can get me the best deal. Overall great experience and a great help!

    Chris new his stuff!
    Appreciated how much he listened to my feedback on the first recommendations. I could tell he was trying not to sell me into an expensive ski I wouldn’t be able to handle, which is very considerate. After chatting more, though, he was able to see what I was looking for and my skill level, and now I’m so psyched for my new setup!

    Chris is the man
    Chris was able to help me out as a beginner to all of this. Answered my questions, though some may have been common knowledge. And was able to help me out get a deal on everything I needed. Not only that, but was able to help me with the whole shipping process. 10/10, would recommend.

    Chris is awesome. He found and recommended a pair of skis and bindings for my wife. Wow, what a deal. Chris is super knowledgeable and helpful, he found about 8 skis and a couple bindings in my price range and helped find the best fit for us. Would recommend working with Chris!!
