Ski Expert Gunnar O
A little pillow boost
  • Gunnar O

    My name is Gunnar and I live and ride in Washington 🏔🌲. I'm primarily a skier ⛷ but you can occasionally find me on a snowboard 🏂. I love deep days 🌨 and finding new ways to ride terrain 🧑‍🎨. It doesn't matter if I am getting first tracks right under the chair 🚠 or hanging off a tree branch to find one last snowy chute at the end of the day--it all is fun for me 😅.

    I love researching gear and my friends rely on me for advice on what's what 🔬. I like knowing what goes into a product that gives it its unique properties 🧐. Innovation in the sport gets me excited 😆 and I like trying new products. That being said, I prefer to stick with gear that I know I can trust year after year 🥳.

    I know that finding the right gear can be a confusing and daunting process 😵‍💫. I also personally know how frustrating it can be to end up spending money on ski equipment 🎿 only to find out that it isn't right for you 😖. Throughout my time on skis, in the ski shop, and as a ski instructor I have learned that there is a perfect ski setup for every person—they just need some guidance to find it 😊😉.

    Let me see if I can help you find your ideal setup! ❄️☃️🗻

    Jon's experience with Gunnar
    Gunner was a big help and very responsive. He reached out to me to see if package had arrived. When it had not as UPS said it had he helped me locate. He sent me a picture from UPS showing where they had left package. Turned out it was on Neighbors side porch. I am very satisfied.

    Very knowledgeable and friendly.
    As someone who also sells skis but in a local shop I was skeptical about this platform. After talking to Gunnar and receiving his recommendations I am impressed about the level of knowledge and expertise that goes on it what he does.

    if Gunnar is your expert -CONGRATS!
    Gunnar is awesome! Such a friendly and easy person to talk to, especially when asking him about skiing and gear. He helped me pick out my first set of equipment for the season (which I knew nothing about). He made the process fun and totally stress-free. Thanks a bunch, Gunnar!

    Gunnar O. Is THE BEST
    I will never shop anywhere else or seek any one else’s advice on winter/snow gear! Gunnar was extremely knowledgeable, happy to help, and was able to rephrase answers to my questions in a couple of different ways in order to help me make the best decision for my purchase. Very happy with the whole experience. Thank you Gunnar!

    Gunner was great! I trusted him because he also skis Mt Bachelor and understood the runs I wanted to take. He also confirmed that my boots would work with the binding I was purchasing. I would use him again for future purchases. Great platform, excellent service!

    What an outstanding experience!! Shopping for skis, boots and poles for my son, and Gunnar could not possibly have been a bigger help. I would recommend this service, and Gunnar, to ANYONE who was in the market for equipment.

    listens to exactly what you are looking for
    Gunnar listened to exactly what I was looking for and was able to explain, in easy to understand terms, why he was recommending each item. He was decisive and sure. I feel super confident in my ski choice after chatting with him. He was timely and not pushy. Felt like I was talking to a friend.

    Daniel's experience with Gunnar
    I really appreciated Gunnar's help selecting new skis and bindings. He was very patient as we chatted on and off over about a 2 week period while I did some research on my own and demoed some skis. I had some issues with the shipping, not receiving skis with bindings mounted as ordered, but I think that was more an issue with the supplier. Customer service was quite prompt in helping resolve the issue.
