Ski Expert Kevan Gahan
Enjoying Whitefish, MT in the spring of 2022!
  • Kevan Gahan

    I was born and raised in the Portland, Oregon area, and I have been fortunate enough to have skied every winter (and a lot of summers on Mt. Hood!) for as long as I can remember. Throughout the years I have gained experience in various disciplines including alpine ski racing, terrain park (freestyle), all-mountain/free ride, and now ski mountaineering.

    I love skiing because of the escape it provides from everyday life. Skiing is unique and special opportunity to grow relationships and learn about yourself outside of your everyday routine. It gets you out of your comfort zone!

    Whether it is your first time on the hill, or you're a lifelong ski addict like myself, it quickly becomes apparent that the gear you use matters - it has a massive impact on the enjoyment you get out of this special sport. Whether its making sure you get the right pair of gloves so your hands stay comfortable even on the coldest days, or helping you pick your next pair of skis to shred the whole mountain with, I want to be the gear expert for you that I always wish I had. The quicker and easier you can get on the hill with gear that is hand picked for you, the more enjoyment you will get - and that's what it's all about!

    When I'm not skiing, I work as a Mechanical Engineer in the automotive industry. I spend my free time outside of ski season mountaineering on the volcanoes here in the Cascades, hiking, mountain biking, lifting weights, and playing the guitar! I love talking about any of these things, so let's chat!

    Kevan was super friendly, intelligent and responsive when it came to finding new skis. He took the time to learn about me and my needs and picked ski options based on that. You can tell he’s really passionate about skiing and helping others find their best set up! I had a great experience and learned a lot talking to Kevan

    So helpful
    Kevan took the time to listen to exactly what my experience and skill level was, and tailored recommendations to exactly what I was looking for. He really hit the nail on the head with recommending skis that would work for me to continue advancing my skills while feeling comfortable and able to explore more of the mountain. He also went above and beyond to provide me in depth recs about bindings and insight into other skis I had researched. He answered all of my questions and was super friendly and approachable - I am really so impressed by this experience so far and am super grateful. Thank you!!!

    Kevan is fantastic!
    I was super impressed with my whole experience! I have been debating between the Bent 110s and Enforcers 110s, Kevan gave me great advice and talked me through a lot of different features of both! They did a great job of not assuming I did not know anything and treated me and my experience with a ton of respect. Sometimes ski culture can be so broey, but Kevan is a great example of a super kind, helpful human! I'm STOKED to get out on these skis!
