When you love what you do - it shows day in and day out. At, we are very lucky to have a staff that lives and breathes
all things skiing and snowboarding. Since our expert staff has made us who we are today, we want to introduce you to another member of our family. Meet Brian Good - our director of operations and lead ski buyer.


Brian Good has been skiing for over 38 years and has been with the Buckman’s family for 30 years. In addition to being our director of operations he is also a ski hard good buyer. He loves working at because he “gets to work with a great group of people who love skiing”. Being able to go to work in the industry that you love sure has it perks - from being able to stay up to date on the latest skiing and snowboard trends to having a fun group of people to ski and ride with. What could be better?

Brian’s favorite ski resort is Whistler because it offers so much great terrain and the village itself has so much to offer. No question about it - spending time on the slopes as family is simply priceless and when we asked Brian who he loved to ski with the most - it was no surprise he told us, “My Family”. He went on to say, “It was fun the day that I realized that my son who started skiing at age 2, had somehow become a better skier then myself!”. Talk about a memory that one will never forget!

This season Brian will be rocking the Atomic Redster Double Deck Skis when riding on the East Coast and when he makes his way to the West Coast he will be using Blizzard Bonafide Skis. His choice of boots this season will be Lange RX 130 BootsAs one of our ski buyers, Brian gets to test out all the latest goodies and this season he is really looking forward to checking out the continued innovation of both skis and boots and how they keep making skiing more fun. “Boots also just keep getting more comfortable while increasing the level of performance” – he went on to tell us. This is great news as we all know how important comfort is when you are out on the slopes.

The last thing Brian shared with us was that the #1 thing to bring to the slopes that is often overlooked is Camelbak Hydration Kits.  Great advice if you ask us, as staying hydrated on the slopes is of utmost importance.
