Hey!!! My name is Yuri, I grew up in New York City, and now I'm currently chasing snow in Colorado. I grew up learning to snowboard at Hunter Mountain as a kid, during college I began volunteering at CHILL, and graduated college to pursue a snowboard coaching career in Vermont.
I've worked in the snowboard industry for over a decade, teaching/coaching people from all walks of life. I lived in vermont traveling all across the U.S. coaching snowboarding and testing gear for companies. My winter will currently be spent riding a steady rotation of Loveland, Taos, and Grand Targhee!
Whether you're shredding East or West, please let me help you on your research for gear in the abundance that is snowboard retail!
My current winter goals: Splitboarding with my dog Ziggy, living remotely chasing powder, and helping you find the gear you need to chase the shred!
