Answer a few quick questions to get started with Colin
  • Colin McKeith

    I grew up 5 minutes from Shawnee Peak Ski Area in western Maine, which meant that every available minute of my childhood was spent on those icy east coast slopes. On skis by age 2, I followed my older brothers around the mountain for years, from the terrain park to the trees, night or day.

    When I got to high school my buddies and I spent every summer working landscaping jobs in order to pay for winter ski trips. Through a series of fortunate personal connections we were able to travel the world on the cheap, skiing powder with friends and locals in destinations like Jackson Hole and St. Anton.

    Finally, when college hit, we took the next step. Three years ago, three of us bought the Mountain Collective pass, hopped into my buddy's CRV, and drove 8,000 miles in 19 days, hitting some of the most legendary ski areas in North America.

    Two years ago, we bought a 2001 Ford E450 - a 15,000lb, 25 passenger shuttle bus. We spent every weekend for 3 months converting it into a livable space, and then at Christmas time we piled four dudes into 120 square feet and headed west. We drove about 7,000 miles in 16 days, living in the bus the entire way. Ultimately, as cool as this sounded in theory, it was a ton of work - so we sold the bus last fall.

    Last season, 6 of us headed off to northern Japan and spent 2 weeks getting absolutely buried by the legendary Hokkaido powder. This year, well, who knows. We'll see what happens 😎

    I love chatting with folks about their skiing, ski trips, and adventures in general - stay rad!

    Valuable information
    Colin spent all the time I needed with great advice on all my questions plus great information I would have never thought to ask...I'm grateful for landing on this website as well as talking to Colin through the live text as well as over the phone...I'm 100% confident and happy with the purchases I've made through his recommendations! I also do quite a bit of research with prices and found curated to have the best deals which made it a no brainer for me buying my first set of skis and equipment here! Thanks! Excited to hit the basin in Santa fe (: Dante Vance

    Colin's the Best
    I had the daunting task of finding three sets of skis/bindings for my three kids ages 22, 20 and 14. Colin made the process fun by giving suggestions and answering questions while providing helpful input along the way. From start to finish we had a package defined for all three in record time with free shipping well before Christmas. I went into the process with some ideas that Colin liked and worked with and some that did not make sense based on his logical reasoning. The back and forth was valuable and fun. Obviously very well versed in ski technology, Colin is your go to person for equipment advice.

    Unexpectedly Impressed
    I saw an ad for this service and just thought I'd try it out to broaden the scope of skis I was looking at. I didn't expect to actually get a good deal. Colin, my expert, was very knowledgeable and provided recommendations on skis I wouldn't have found myself. In the end I bought the skis I originally wanted, but through Colin was able to get a discount that was better than my own pro deal.

    Knowledgeable and Accommodating
    I messaged Colin and spoke with him on the phone. He was very easy to talk to and came up with some great suggestions based on my skiing desires and price range. This was much easier and efficient than sifting through all of the possible options by myself without an expert's advice.

    The knowledge of the experts is a great asset when looking for skis that fit your style and budget! Super helpful, and they aren't lying about the price matching! I managed to get some great skis and bindings well below the prices elsewhere.
