  • David A

    Hi all! My name is David. I've been an avid skier for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I was lucky enough that my family had a ski-house at Bretton Woods. I was on their race team for years and my best childhood memories come from my time there!

    I'm excited for the opportunity to help you pick out the best gear possible! I'm not sponsored by any brands so I will give you my honest opinion based on my experience and how you intend to use the gear so we can both be confident that it's the right pick for you!

    I am a season pass holder at Ragged Mountain Resort in Danbury, NH and Wachusett Mountain in Princeton, MA so if you happen to frequent those mountains - let me know!

    I've helped 587 people find the right product - I'd love to help you too!

Talk about great customer services, this has been the best experience and I will definetely recommend him to everyone I know. Thanks to a fellow “Marylander.”

    10/10 would recommend
    I came in was probably a bunch of really basic sounding questions, and a lot of them, and he was really patient and answering all of them! I felt like he definitely listened to what I wanted, and put together several different options and adjusted those options based off of further input. I also had a pretty tight budget, and he was super helpful in finding me a full gear setup within my budget (which I was not expecting). All around great service, thank you!

    David was outstanding
    Very responsive and provided expert incite on what products to consider to buy. I’m a snowboarder so he helped find what would best fit me to start with for skis. Really excited to try them out and shred in Park City. The customer support is fantastic for this site. Got my snowboard from here as well. Thanks a bunch to y’all’s team.

    David is an amazing expert!
    He’s very knowledgeable about all things winter sports and immediately gave me great options for skis within my price range. If you’re unaware of the specifics of skis and bindings, David’s your guy. I had lots of questions about sizing and the different elements of each ski and David was able to explain everything really well. I’ll definitely be reaching out to him in the future for anything winter sports related!

    Super helpful!
    Not only was he knowledgable about the skis he recommended as well as other models I asked about, but he also was well aware of what it’s like to ski on the east coast. All very helpful in trying to find the right ski.

    David was great!
    David curated a solid list of gear for a newbie Nordic skier and found a good alternative when one of the items went out of stock. He is super friendly and easy to talk to—very responsive with any requests or questions.

    So helpful
    I remember little to nothing about ski gear. David figured it all out for me based on where I was at and what I was looking for. He provided great insight so I could weigh the options.
