Nikolas Otte

I grew up in Colorado's front range, so skiing has always been one of my greatest passions. I started skiing intensively in 2012, and have progressively ramped that up as I grow older and found easier ways to access the mountains. Nowadays, I try my best to make it to 100 days a season on snow! When I'm not skiing, I can generally be found in the mountains of Colorado's front range, hiking or mountain biking. I'm also a student at CU Boulder!

My life revolves around skiing, and I'm stoked to share that. I'm here to help you find the gear that works for you and makes skiing a better experience for you. I'm a ski expert, not a sales guy, and I will always have your best interests in mind. Let's work together to get you onto the right gear for you!

Caryn's experience with Nikolas
Very educational and Nick Otte beyond helpful to make my dream of a perfect Steamboat pow trip beautifully equipped with a great ski and my favorite bonding he found in a very helpful price drop. I was high maintenance researching all the choices he recommended and he was very patient and continually helpful .

Amazing experience, for FREE
I saw an ad on social media and tapped it. What I got for free was worth so much more than i expected. Nikolas provided me with recommendations and a personalized video on why he recommends each item for my needs. He answered my questions over the span of a few DAYS. For FREE. I haven’t placed the order yet but Nikolas’s expertise has persuaded me to place the order in this coming week. Phenomenal service, excellent expert. Thank you.

Daniel's experience with Nikolas
I have never heard of this company before... I was simply comparison shopping and came across the option to match with an expert and it was the best experience ever! I was about to buy bindings that were not right for me at a steep price, and my expert pointed me in the right direction. Saved me more money on an even nicer ski binding. Love this!

Nikolas was a great help!
Nikolas asked the right questions to figure out what type of skier I wanted to work to become. He suggested gear that would both meet my current needs and aid my skill progression. I appreciated his attention to detail and consideration of my budget.

Snow-one knows better than Nikolas! 👍🏻
Excited to demo some of the great recommendations he’s given me. He asked me great questions about my current ski style and I love that we have ski’d some of the same mountains. Skiing is my passion and having someone who enjoys it just as much and can help with recommendations is so helpful. I am confident he made some fun and fitting recommendations for me. Now to decide which will be my favorite new ski’s! See you on the mountain!

Nikolas was awesome to work with!
I haven’t bought a new set of skis in 14 years and he was very thorough in helping me choose the style of ski and compatible bindings. I recently just received my new setup and am very happy with my purchase. I will continue to return for his expert opinion and I strongly suggest to work with him for your ski needs.

Nikolas kept working with me and reminding me about the great deal I could get with Black Friday. I really needed that gentle prodding as the holidays are a busy time. Thanks Nikolas and all the best in school! You're awesome! Jan K (Colorado)
