Answer a few quick questions to get started with Chris
  • 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’t 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’s 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’m pretty sure everyone loves an epic pow spray!

    Send it! Shreddy Time Pow Slaps! KEEP THE STOKE ALIVE🤙

    Understanding and easy going
    Great experience with Chris I took a while before I actually purchased anything and he was so patient about it any questions I had he answered and answered them fast the board and bindings I ordered came faster than expected and that was plus. And the board is sick so over all great deal

    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’m 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’t even know existed after I spent dozens of hours researching what I should purshase. Chris is the penultimate winter sports expert—be glad he’s on your team.

    Thanks Man!
    Chris recommended a board that I had not previously even looked at. It turns out it was pretty much exactly what I was after...super stoked about the camber profile! Price was killer too!

    Allison's experience with Chris
    I'm surprised that the board isn't protected in the tall box like my first one was. Two tapes ripped. Please always make sure the board is fully protected in the box to prevent damages.
