Answer a few quick questions to get started with Lucas
Hiking in Bear Canyon- Bozeman,MT
  • Lucas Proffitt

    My passion for skiing began when I moved to Bozeman, MT four years ago. I had very limited experience with the sport up until then, but once I was exposed to big mountain skiing I was hooked. I spent every day at the mountain that I could and skiing became the center of my universe.

    My first job realted to skiing was bartending at the Moonlight Lodge in Big Sky. I got introduced to the sport by some very proficient big mountain and backcountry skiiers and I've been chasing powder ever since. I currently live in Bear Canyon just outside of Bozeman, MT where I have backcountry access right in my backyard and only a short drive to Bridger Bowl. I bartend in town and since I work nights, you can find me on the Bridger Bowl ridge or touring local backcountry just about any day of the week.

    I love what good gear allows you to do in this sport. There are so many ways to ski and every piece of gear is a tool to enhance your style. I love researching and trying out different setups and seeing how differently then can highlight a skier's various attributes. If the mountain is a canvous, your skis are your paintbrushes, and there is nothing better than painting the perfect line!

    Xtra helpful for my 1st pair of ski/boots
    He was super responsive and explained all the complicated ski terms that I am not quite familiar with yet, but are necessary to know when buying skiis/ boots/ bindings. Made the whole process less daunting and more manageable. He found all the good deals for all terrain skiis and moderate flex boots! Will definitely continue to use him for all my future purchases.

    Very Responsive
    Lucas was very quick getting back to me, even during off hours and the weekend. I really appreciate his help so I thoroughly understood how the skis would be shipped to me and what I would need to do locally for setting up my new skis.
