The Skiershop.com crew has skiing on the mind 24/7, though in the summer they may put a bike to good use too. Each member of our staff is committed to getting you stoked on skiing and equipped with the gear to do so. Here is a little bit of information about the staff so you can see what gear they use and why. -Erme

Why Stowe? It is epic! There is a lot of side country and the runs carry a good pitch pretty much all the way to the bottom.
Ideal day on the hill? Fresh snow in the woods, come out near the bottom and hit a few rails before I get on the chair to do it again.
Skis – Armada JJ, Surface Double Time and Live Life
Bindings – Tyrolia Peak 18x
Boots – Nordica Ace of Spades
Outerwear – Orage
Goggles – Scott Fix
Best day ever? They all have an epic moment which makes it hard to pick just one. I have had days when the pow was super deep and untracked, bluebird park days, awesome views off the mountain be it cloud formations, endless visibility, or cool looking rime-ice on trees…The best are when these elements collide into one day.
Summertime activity and tool of choice? Mountain Biking! My tool of choice is the Intense Uzzi VP.
Favorite music to listen to while skiing? Anything motivating.
