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 gotten easier ways to access the mountains.

Nowadays, I ski primarily within Colorado, on the Ikon pass resorts, with the occasional trip to Utah or Montana.

With 8 solid years of skiing under my belt, I have found what skis work best for me and what makes each ski feel good or bad, and have picked up plenty of knowledge in the field along the way.

When I'm not skiing, I can generally be found in the mountains of Colorado's front range, hiking or mountain biking.

Snow-one knows better than Nikolas! 馃憤馃徎
Excited to demo some of the great recommendations he鈥檚 given me. He asked me great questions about my current ski style and I love that we have ski鈥檇 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鈥檚! See you on the mountain!

Nikolas was awesome to work with!
I haven鈥檛 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 was so kind and helpful!
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)

Nikolas was great!
I have just started skiing and know nothing about what gear to get that would work best for my ski level. He was very helpful with getting me into the appropriate gear. The skis went out of stock while I was in the middle of purchasing them. He amazingly was able to track down the same skis from another source. I was very appreciative!

Great recommendations!
Thanks Nikolas for your suggestions and getting all my gear personalized for me. The sizing component was extra helpful, as I have no idea what size is best for my skis/boots. Thanks for the mountain bike recommendations in Colorado too! Pleasure working with you!

Nikolas did an amazing job
He fully considered what I was looking for and came up with some great recommendations. He recommended skis that were not on my radar. I ultimately bought a pair skis that I was not considering before talking to him.

Christin's experience with Nikolas
I was definitely intimidated about finding skis that work and this took all the stress out of the process. I鈥檓 so thankful for the guidance and support.
