Answer a few quick questions to get started with Edward
  • Edward Clem

    Since I was four years old, skiing has been the dominating passion in my life and the main force which I have built my career. As a professional photographer specializing in winter sports action photography, gear is at the forefront of my day to day life. The professional skiers that I work with rely on their gear to keep their performance at the peak of the sport and stay safe in high consequence situations from 100-foot terrain park jumps to exposed lines deep in the backcountry. I also work as a ski-tech at Podium Sports, a shop specializing in ski racing in Summit County, Colorado. This keeps me in touch with the newest and greatest techniques in ski technology and helps me keep our clients on the podium year after year.

    Ed is the man!
    When I put in my info to get ski recommendations, I wasn’t expecting to have conversations with Ed, a real human, about gear tailored to all the things I was looking for in a ski that I told Ed about. He was not only helpful in finding gear but was really approachable and quick to respond. I would 100% come to Ed again in the future when looking for gear, he made the experience easy and and helped me find exactly what I wanted! .

    Wow. Real help. Real people.
    It’s 1120 PM on a random Thursday night. I am getting really help on ski equipment from people like Ed, who know about skiing and about the equipment. Not only did he pick out some awesome things, they were great prices and he explained things to me. Furthermore, he would chat with me. They weren’t “yes” “no” answers. There was context behind what Edward said. What a freaking great experience! I am totally surprised!

    Much more personal of an experience than I expected
    I wasn't sure what to expect when I clicked through on the Facebook ad. I wasn't aware when I clicked that I would actually get in touch with a real-life ski expert (maybe your ad should showcase that a little more vividly lol!). Once I started chatting with Edward and he knew what I was looking for, it didn't take long to get his recommendations with some personalized notes for each pick. This definitely helped ensure that I would come back when it came time to actually make a purchase. Thanks Edward and well done!

    Edward is Amazing!
    This is my first time buying my own skis and I was worried about not finding gear that suited my needs or being pressured into purchasing things way out of my price point. Being a college student I have been working hard to save up for skis and needed someone knowledgable and friendly to help. Edward was my guy! So helpful, asked the right questions, responses were fast, made amazing recommendations that will be perfect for me for many ski seasons to come. Thanks again!

    Amazing Recommendations
    I told Edward my skill level and what skis I was looking for, and instantly he showed me multiple pairs that were greatly priced, and of my interest. He was quick to respond every single time I sent him a message, and he even price matched an item I found that was cheaper. He is an amazing expert that knows so much about ski gear! Thanks for the Help Edward.

    Like chatting with a friend!
    Edward is awesome. He's super knowledgeable about the products but also flexible in his recommendations. If you have questions, concerns, really anything he's ready to chat about them. It honestly feels more like shopping with a friend who just happens to know all about skiing! Can't recommend him more.

    Edward is the man
    Edward was so awesome and answered all my questions even when I blew him up with a million questions and request. I won’t do this any other way he is the one to use and will not sell you something to sell you something and he keeps the prices very reasonable and doesn’t sell you anything you don’t need

    Edward literally made my day!
    All my ski gear was recently stolen, it took me months to hand select and research all pieces and parts to put together an amazing rig. Edward took what I used to have, listened to what I like to do, and hand picked me all the pieces and parts to make my mountain experience better than it has ever been. I am ready for the season and it took me hours, not months. Experts like Edward make sure others are at the top of their game and where they WANT to be, not where they buy into. Also, all the pieces he recommended were priced at bargain prices. No banks where broken in the building of my new rig. Thank you Ed!

    Top notch customer service experience + amazing deal!
    I'd been searching for a very specific ski - Edward found me a match in minutes - then he did one better and found me a demo from last year for half the price. Tell him what you are seeking and the budget range and you'll have a far better experience than visiting your local shop! Kudos to and THANK YOU EDWARD!
