Ski Expert Wesley Bryden
Crystal Mountain Powder Day
  • Wesley Bryden

    Wesley has 38 years of skiing experience and is passionate about the mountains. I spent the first years of my life living on Stevens Pass and was skiing by the time I could walk. I have instructed beginner lessons and shown friends how to safely access our back country terrain and love helping everyone have their best day possible on the mountain. I count Stevens Pass, Alpental and Crystal as my home mountains and have skied all over North America.

    During warmer months I dream about powder days and spend my time kayaking, sailing, backpacking and constantly pushing myself to explore new challenges. Over the last fewyears I have started mountainering, camping in alpine conditions like Camp Muir while summitting Mount Ranier. My personal goal this year is to backpack the 75 miles of section J of the PCT and finally start touring the back country more!

    First set of skis
    Wes was very helpful and knowledgeable in helping me select my first set of skis. I needed a one quiver set up that allowed me to expand into backcountry skiing later down the road. I can easily over analyze products, so his guidance was very helpful. I had some issues within the ordering process and payment verification, but Wes was responsive and worked with support to resolve timely.

    Lost without some help
    I was way skeptical! I like buying things in person. I also like the relationships that are cultivated. Wesley was quickly approachable and helpful! He listened, guided, listened, and guided some more. After what probably felt like a long time, dealing with a researcher who was being indecisive (me) I finally found the right pair. I cannot recommend Wesley enough. Truly, one of a kind!

    Fantastic Experience
    I came to because I’m a fairly new skier and wanted to buy my son skis but didn’t know where to begin. Wesley was so helpful and made the whole experience really easy and fun. I was just recommending this service today to a friend who’s thinking about taking up skiing again. Thank you for making a stressful process easy from the comfort of my own home.

    Wesley worked with my wife and I one our schedule and gave us so many options, honest opinions, and solid recommendations that matched what I was finding while doing my own research. I felt like he was a friend through the process instead of salesman. Would recommend him to anyone! Thanks Wesley!

    Difficulty Buying Skis
    Wesley helped and guided me on the best ski options there was. It was very helpful since I was clueless on what to buy. I didn't know buying skis was so difficult, but Wesley made it feel like a breeze and have better knowledge on what to look for.

    Trevor's experience with Wesley
    I got connected with Wesley and he was extremely helpful throughout the process. I made him work hard and he never shied away from the challenge. He was always very responsive (even when he was not at work) and he made me feel like this was something he was doing for a friend- dude is an excellent person
