  • Chris Vertin

    19 years ago I became a heel side hero with old school step in bindings!

    My love for the sport grew throughout the years of being a weekend warrior, until I couldn鈥檛 take the weekend crowds anymore and decided to go full send and move to Tahoe! I worked at Northstar California as an instructor getting certified withh AASI and USSA. During my time at Northstar I obtained my Level 2 AASI, Level 2 Freestyle, Children鈥檚 Specalist, and USSA Level 2 certifications. I moved into the coaching realm and was the Head Coach of the Northstar Snowboard Team.

    Recently, I decided to take some time off from coaching to focus on my own riding and compete on the Freeride World Qualifier Tour by Tyrolia. My favorite things to do on my snowboard is get massive air and tweak that grab with style! Oh and I鈥檓 pretty sure everyone loves an epic pow spray!

    Very patient with me
    Chris is very knowledgeable about everything I needed and told me what I didnt know. He picked out a great selection of product and i liked so many. He was very patient with me asking questions and me not knowing what to decide to buy. I would definitely come back to talk with him

    What a guy
    I'll keep it short. The man knew what I needed and gave it to me straight. Easy to talk to guy and clearly has a passion for the sport. I have very little snowboarding experience and with his help finding new gear, I can't wait to hit the mountains

    Chris Knows His Stuff
    I鈥檓 a former snowboard salesperson, with 25+ years shredding. Chris quickly identified what I should be riding based on the information he asked for. I learned early on in sales that qualifying the customer is the most important part of your job, and Chris did that flawlessly. He even identified products that I didn鈥檛 even know existed after I spent dozens of hours researching what I should purshase. Chris is the penultimate winter sports expert鈥攂e glad he鈥檚 on your team.
