Answer a few quick questions to get started with Eric
Abae in May- the best kind of family get together
  • Eric Bergdoll

    After moving from Singapore to Colorado at the age of 6, I was quick to pick up skiing. Weekends were spent on the slopes of Winter Park, Copper or Loveland. Upon moving to Pennsylvania at the age of 13, I missed the challenge presented by the steep mountains of Colorado and decided to pick up a snowboard for the first time. In college I led rock climbing, mountain biking, and whitewater kayaking trips every weekend as President of the Pitt Outdoors Club and snowboarded at some of the best resorts in the east as a member of the Pitt Interscholastic Snowboard Team (PIST). Even with so much going on at school, I still missed the dramatic scenery and great snow found in the mountains of the western US. In January 2019 I left school and moved into my Subaru Outback with $300 in my bank acount and a Gearhead job lined up with Backcountry.com in Salt Lake City. I spent that winter reviewing 2020 model year Snowboards at Park City and the spring reviewing and racing Mountain Bikes. In May I ended up trading the Subaru for a 1986 Ford Van which I built into my dream travel vehicle and hit the road, biking and climbing at the best spots in the USA. This winter I'm settled down in Sandy, UT and working as a Ski and Snowboard tech at Snowbird resort.

    Awesome service!
    I am new to the snowboarding community. So I wasn’t sure what to get or where to start. Eric asked me a couple of questions and set me up with the best package for me! He never pushed sales and he always gave his honest opinion! Thank you Eric for your help! I will be back to buy again!

    Eric is super helpful and knowledgable.
    Eric was extremely responsive to all messages and questions that I sent. He helped me to navigate different snowboard options as I went back and forth between a few different boards. Ultimately, he recommended the board that I ended up purchasing.

    Great experience!
    Eric was extremely responsive and helped me get set up with my first snowboard. He asked lots of questions to get familiar with my skill level, and then made a recommendation to fit. He also helped find a deal to fit within my budget. I would definitely recommend him.

    Eric is a cool guy who knows his stuff. I've been watching reviews on tons of snowboards and Eric gave me some additional info on some of my favorites and some personal recommendations. After talking with Eric, I knew which board was the right one for me. Thanks man!

    Eric is been the most helpful person you can ever meet to talk about snowboarding
    He isn’t the realist. You can for sure count on him for advice to look at snowboards. I really like how he connects with you while finding you the perfect one.
