Growing up skiing in Stowe, Vermont, I learned to high speed cruise on fresh cuordoroy, chase my older brother through the trees and glades, make my turns tight and quick on moguls, and drop into a steep and narrow double black diamond. When my Dad took me on a trip "out West" for the first time when I was 15, I got my first taste of deep powder and I never looked back. Now, I am lucky to call Salt Lake City, Utah my home, and ski resorts like Snowbird, Alta, Solitude, and Brighton are my backyard. Since living in Utah, I have expanded my ski skills and knowledge even further: I've taken avalanche safety classes and have added the Wasatch backcountry to my regularly visited ski spots, I've taken weekend trips to Jackson Hole, Big Sky, Steamboat, and other top class resorts that are just a stones throw away, and skied on the 4th of July. Through all of these experiences skiing at various locations and on every type of terrain out there, I've learned firsthand how having gear that is perfectly tailored to your specific, unique needs can make all the difference. Ski boots don't have to - and shouldn't - make your feet hurt! Just because you are the same weight and height as your friend, doesn't mean the ski type and length they use is what you should use. If you are interested in getting into backcountry touring, get the gear and the education! I understand that everyone enjoys the outdoors differently, and I want to hook you up with the right ski gear so that you love the winter as much as I do!
