Beautiful day in Cortina!
  • Shannon Walton

    I have been a skier for 21 years and am looking forward to the next 20! I started off dipping my toes in racing in Western NY but unfortuanly tore my ACL the first year in. I got back to skiing the following year and even though I had a few more knee surgeries along the way, I still love the sport and ski 40 plus days a year. I recently moved to the awesome town of Stowe, VT home to Stowe Mountain Resort which I now am lucky enough to call my home resort. Since moving here I worked at local ski shops where I have been able to learn as much as I can about ski equipment from the manufactors. I was able to ski on all different makes and models of skis so I have a first hand knowledge of how the skis actually ski. I enjoy helping people learn and discover new skis fit for them and I am looking forward to helping you!

    Shannon is amazing!!!
    Haven’t skied since middle school (20 years ago). Rented skis, had a blast and wanted to get my own gear. The choices and options were so overwhelming we didn’t know enough to even get started. Decision paralysis is a real thing!!!! Shannon was so helpful!! Totally relaxed, easy going and absolutely no pressure. She explained her gear selection choices, listened to concerns and varied the choices based on my feedback. I felt absolutely no pressure from her at all. It was like having a best friend and expert in the same person. I feel completely confident in the gear I selected and feel no buyers remorse. Which is new for a “big” gear purchase. I can’t say enough good about Shannon. Thank you so much!!! Highly recommend

    Can we be best friends?
    Shannon was AMAZING! Very easy to talk to and I never felt pressured to purchase. She spoke from experience and made the interaction personal. She took my feedback and quickly curated amazing options. It was the best ski help i've ever received (including in-person help). I walked away with more knowledge and a vision for my next pair of skis. I'll definitely be back when it comes time to purchase. Thanks, Shannon!

    Shannon Knows Her Stuff
    Buyers Beware in the Best Way Possible! You are getting exactly what you’d hope for with Shannon. I was looking at window shopping some Skis. Shannon was so knowledgeable and responsive I felt like we were in the same store. Thirty Minutes and a full shopping cart later I went from Window Shopping to a proud owner of some new gear. You will not be disappointed with your choices

    Super help and happened to know my ski areas!
    Just a few seconds into our talk Shannon realized we both have lived in WNY and she even knew the slopes I ski. She was able to help me find my setup at a great price. I even asked some questions about my area and her thoughts and she was super helpful. Thanks Shannon!!!!
