Favorite Day of Skiing

Everyday that I can get on my skis and go out with a crew of buddies and be on snow is honestly my favorite day! I love having first tracks through knee deep pow, I feel like the man. I get stocked when I look over my shoulder and see one of my buddies charging, disappearing in a cloud of snow every turn. It’s the most inspiring moment for me; everyone competing to see who gets the sickest line with smiles from ear to ear. Nothing else matters except to get to the bottom to ride back up and take another lap. That’s the best day I could ever ask for, going out and having fun with my buddies, and being on snow.

What is the best part about working for Surefoot?

The best part about working for Surefoot Killington is being a part of a shop that is driven by making the world’s most comfortable and best performing ski boots. While doing so here at Surefoot Killington, we strive to be the best at what we do, making people enjoy their boots and their time on the mountain. While achieving this here in the Killington location we work for the best with the best because that’s simply who we are. THE BEAST OF THE EAST!!!

Something Interesting About Me

Growing up, I was the biggest snowboard punk you had ever met. Wanting absolutely nothing to do with skiing, until my buddy’s snowboard got stolen and he started skiing. I started to watch him ski park with us and he made everything look so stylish, that is when I began to take an interest in skiing. A broken hand at a snowboard summer camp at Whistler/ Blackcomb, a snapped clavicle and 3 concussions that winter, caused my doctor to tell me (most importantly my parents) that I shouldn’t snowboard for the rest of the season but skiing was ok. It was the best outcome I could have had. I now had an excuse and permission from my doctor to learn how to ski. The rest is history and has brought me to where I am today, skiing as much as possible, working with the best boot fitters in the world and loving every moment of it.

Testimonial

The Surefoot system and products are the only way to go, if you’re looking for the highest level of performance and comfort. The Surefoot Custom ski boot is the only boot where I can ski any style from hiking for first tracks in the morning, to slaying race gates, banging through the trees and then boosting through the park. All of that without ever adjusting my boots in between without any lack of comfort or performance. They are flat out the best and only boots that your feet deserve to be in!!!
