Growing up in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, I was constantly exposed to conversations revolving around skiing. Wether it be conditions, gear, avalanche safety or anything inbetween, skiing and snow was the main subject at the dinner table. After graduating high school, I joined up with a small time ski and board company named Chronic Skis & Boards for a few years. We took a RV and drove around the country, and eventually up through Canada to Alaska, running demos and promoting our brand. Through my journey with this company we went to many different trade shows, on and off snow demos of other brands, and constant reading of magazines and catalouges to figure out what it is that makes a company and their gear successful. These early years of my ski industry career gave me a strong foundational base of knowledge for my next step in this business, which has been coaching.
The past couple seasons I have been working as a Freestyle Coach for the Bridger Ski Foundation. Working with different age groups, and via asking questions/observing I have been able to gain a wealth of knowledge and become privy to an even wider variety of gear. Now I am working at the Yellowstone Club, still observing and learning as much as I can about the progression of the ski industry and the gear within it. These experiences coaching/instructing have taught me how differently a ski can work for one person to another, and how to determine what the perfect kit is, specifically tailored to your needs and wants.
It is so quintessential to have gear you trust and can have confidence in, my many years of direct customer contact in the ski industry will help us find the perfect gear, for YOU.
