I have been a life long skiing fanatic and worked in the winter sports industry for 20 years. I started as a ski and snowboard instructor and later started working in ski shops. When I first started on the retail side of things I started as a back room tech, moved on to retail sales, became a Master Boot fitter, and managed ski shops. I obtained a certificate in the Dark Arts of Boot fitting from Master Fit University upon completion of their 60+ hours of course work and have 10+ years of boot fitting experience with continued education. I have worked directly with many winter sports brands and have built a great wealth of knowledge with the all different types of gear that are available, from skis, boots, bindings and accessories. I have been fortunate to learn all aspects of gear from many different points of view, from on hill performance, backroom teching and out of the box performance. I'm always down to talk gear so if you have any questions I'm your guy!
