5 /5
I have been scouring the internet and every blog I could find to figure out what type of skis were right for me- and Nate helped me more during our single interaction than I've been able to help myself over the better part of a year. I can't thank him enough for clarifying and simplifying this process for me- and he even gave me other gear recommendations for when I'm ready in the future. 17/10 would recommend any day!

Ben was super helpful and responsive throughout my purchasing process. I've been in the market for a couple of months and honestly didn't know where to begin since I have never purchased or owned skis before. Ben was very knowledgeable, had great recommendations, and was very responsive throughout the process.
