    I've skied my whole life, starting in New Hampshire at age 3. As a teenager I started to compete in rail jams, slopestyle, and big air events and continued as a young adult. I attended Season 3 Salomon Jib Academy at Loon Mountain(2009), USASA Slopestyle, and Skiercross National competitions two years in a row representing Team NY (2011) and Team MA (2010). Nationals was the first time I had been able to ski in Colorado- I have returned several years later to Colorado, this time, I'm here as a coach.

    It is now my 6th year coaching freestyle skiing, I have found my way to Aspen, CO. Along the way, I've also coached freestyle skiing in the Berkshires, MA and at Carinthia, Mount Snow, VT. Many athletes through our program go on to compete in the X-Games and Winter Olympics. It's a great honor to be able to share my passion and skill set with the future of skiing!

    Coming out of the North East/Ice Coast we don't get as much snow as other places and its drawn me into creative ways of skiing. For example, I've hiked and skied Tuckerman's Ravine on Mount Washington, NH several times in May and April. This is the true back country on the East Coast- gnarly ice falls, avalanches, ripping snow melt rivers, and unpredictable weather at any moment combined with the physical exertion of boot packing! Such a rewarding journey, it puts the phrase, 'earn your turns' into perspective.

    Although Tuckerman's is a true back country experience, avalanche conditions were almost never on my mind when it came to skiing in the East. On the contrary, my brother and I were constantly building jumps, rails, and other jibs, as well as seshing urban handrails at schools, townhalls, libraries, etc.... our internal dialogue was more like, 'Oh shit, the cops are coming! Get one more rail hit!'

    I've made it to Colorado and the doors swung wide open! I skied more powder this last season than I've probably skied in 5 years of my life! Now its time to take my bag of tricks from the Terrain Park to Big Mountain! Want to come Shred?

    Insightful product guide!
    I like that the service Jake provided had details as to why products were chosen for me and he seemed very knowledgeable and considerate of my answers and what I was looking for. I asked a few questions as I am a beginner level skier and don’t know the difference between varieties of skiis. I also appreciated the great communication. I was shy to ask questions as this was my first ski purchase but he was very friendly. Thanks again!

    Jake was SUPER helpful!
    Jake was able to help with what gear I needed to get out to the backcountry for the spring season and into next season. He asked about my skiing style and what kind of snow I would primarily be skiing and that helped the decision of the gear he chose! Thanks Jake 🤙🏽

    Jake is AWESOME!
    Brand new to skiing and needed an entire setup. Jake took the time build an affordable package for me and the process was seamless. Did a lot of research prior and the pricing was the same if not better than other websites, but got the service of a professional to help outfit me. Definitely see Jake for all your skiing needs!

    Jake was awesome
    I first reached out to Jake in late 2021. After weeks of discussion, I decided to commit to the purchase of new skis. Jake was very patient and not forceful, professional, friendly, very knowledgeable, and seemed to genuinely care about not only setting me up with the best skis, but also the best deals. I really appreciated the ski reviews he shared with me! I look forward to rocking my new skis! Thanks Jake! 🤙

    Knoweldgeable and Friendly
    Jake did a great job helping me navigate through my options. As someone who hasn't bought skis in 10+ years and whose style and preferences have changed since I last bought skis, I needed some help navigating through the options. Jake was knowledgeable and answered all of my questions, making suggestions and asking additional questions of his own to make sure I was on the right path. This was a great experience, and I'll definitely be back for my next pair of skis!

    Jake was very helpful
    I was thinking about upgrading my skis since I have my current pair for over 10 years now. After submitting the questionnaire, Jake came on with more targeted questions to give me a list. Jake even demo’ed the pair that I was interested in. That helps! I enjoyed my experience with Jake.

    Jake was super helpful!
    I saw curated pop up as an ad for me and I expected to take a quiz and just get a little bit of insight. I was shocked to be paired to someone who was an expert in the subject and able to help me out so seamlessly! Jake has been VERY patient and has helped to educate me to guide me in the process of buying my own ski and boot combo. I’m so grateful for the information he’s shared with me and I will definitely be buying as soon as I can figure out exactly what I want! 😂 He’s given me very thorough explanations as to what would be best for me and I’m extremely grateful for him spreading his expertise!

    Heather's experience with Jake
    Jake was incredibly helpful- via chat and phonecall, with details to help me find the best set (skis, bindings, & boots). He was super knowledgeable. Will definitely recommend him to others! This site in general I found just randomly scrolling on Instagram (your marketing works!) and was really impressed with the whole experience.
