I went from an insulated jacket to this shell when my old one started soaking through. I run pretty warm, so I only wear 1 base layer under it for all but the coldest days. This jacket is plenty warm enough for me because it's totally windy and waterproof. Plus, with the pit zips, I can dump heat when... Read more

So Helpful, Respondent, and Relatable!
5 /5
I've been wanting to buy ski gear for a while now, but honestly didn't have the time or mental capacity to do all the research it takes to really know what gear to buy. My upcoming move to Colorado really made get serious about buying. It was extra convenient that Sara lives in Colorado and is familiar with the conditions I'll be skiing in and what gear will be best. She listened to the questions and concerns I had about gear and measurements and made me feel confident in my purchase! Thanks a ton!

Soren provided excellent recommendations tailored to my needs and my budget, I can not recommend him highly enough. Knowledgeable, friendly, professional, no upselling/pressure tactics. Soren is a great choice for both beginner and expert skiers looking for the right equipment.

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!
