Ski Expert Zach Hodgson
  • Zach Hodgson

    I'm a 27 and grew up Skiing and snowboarding in the Midwest. My main hills were Tyrol Basin, Alpine Valley, Granite Peak, and Mount Bohemia. Ever since I started skiing I've had a passion for sharing my knowledge and skills with others. This really evolved in college while I was earning my doctorate in Physical Therapy, where I had the opportunity to volunteer and teach adaptive skiing through the Southeastern Adaptive Ski Program.

    I have always done my own tuning and maintenance and have helped many friends get into skiing over the past few years. I can talk for hours about gear and all of the incredible advances in ski technology.

    Currently I live in the greater Salt Lake City area and have been exploring the backcountry and off-piste side of skiing. I recently completed my Avalanche 1 course and have been building my backcountry skills with the hopes of doing longer tours and some overnight trips as my skills progress. I am also excited to travel to Japan, Europe, and Argentina to ski in the near future.

    When I'm not skiing, you can find me out climbing and backpacking as I have a gravitation towards anything and everything mountain related.

    Helpful, specific guidance
    I am a lifelong skier but I knew I needed a real gear geek to help me figure out what I needed, and Zach was perfect. He gave me great recommendations and found great deals, and while I did research and read reviews on my own, he kept checking in and adjusting to make sure I had updated info and good options. Highly recommend! Thanks Zach!
