  • Hunter R.

    Hey there! My name is Hunter and I grew up in Ogden, Utah - one of the most underrated places for skiing IMO (but shh don't tell your friends). I considered leaving the state for college for all of five minutes until I realized the access to skiing, climbing, etc. in Utah is unparalleled. So I just moved to Salt Lake City instead!

    I've skied all over this state and also spent a fair amount of time in Colorado! The last 3/4 years I have been mostly backcountry touring which I think is the perfect recipie for me who likes doing borderline dumb cardio endeavours, powder, waking up early, not being in traffic, and not seeing a lot of people.

    Wherever you're at in your ski journey, I'll meet ya there! I have worked in the outdoor industry since 2017 and understand all too well the overwhelm of just getting into a sport and feeling like there are 100000's of options for each piece of gear and closing your laptop to scream because how are you supposed to read enough blogs and websites to understand which one of those options is best for what YOU need. I really don't think there is a better way to figure it out than talk to someone who has experience and whose literal job it is to know these things. So, uh, that's me.

    And even if you've been skiing for awhile, or are an expert, you probably still have some questions on gear, or want a second option, hit that chat box because I'm your gal for that too!

    Aside from skiing, I love trail running, climbing, fly fishing, and seeing pictures of your dog!

    Fast Friends!
    I truly felt like(if we lived in the same area) Hunter and I could have been super fast friends! She was so helpful in getting me set up with my first set of skis! After skiing for over 15 years, I am excited to skip the lines and $$ of renting skis from different resorts and outfitters! Hunter was helpful and offered lots of info on what she thought was best for my needs!

    Hunter was very helpful in choosing skis for me. I appreciated how she listened to what I was looking for and gave me perfect options and then told me which one she thought would be the right choice. I can't wait to get my new skis! Wish I didn't have to wait until next season to try them out!

    What a woman!
    Hunter was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about understanding my ski goals and matching me with the appropriate gear to make them happen. She knows what she's talking about and certainly loves what she does. I feel in this day and age customer service is an art lost to time, but Hunter will have you feeling right at with her cheeky wit and unparalleled recommendations. She told me that they don't make the Bentchetlers in the 210cm length unfortunately, but was able to give me other solid recommendation for fat groomer skis to help float over that fine fine corduroy. Sometimes I notice I fall between the creases in the groomed runs but thanks to Hunter that issue is a thing of the past. Do yourself a favor and buy some skis from Hunter literally right now, it's the best thing that you can do for your skiing guaranteed!

    Hunter took great care with this beginner skier!
    I wanted a way to ask a bunch of questions about the differences in skis and gear without having to sit in a ski shop for hours and get overwhelmed... Hunter was perfect at this, letting me ask "dumb questions" as a brand new beginner skier. She didn't push the most expensive or cheapest gear, letting me figure out what I thought I'd be most comfortable with, which I appreciated so much. I also didn't feel pressured to make a purchase, which was also nice.

    I can't wait to receive my order. I've never bought ski clothes and Hunter was a wonderful help with what to wear for my upcoming trip to Breck! Keeping fingers crossed that it all fits!!
