Posted by Buckman's Ski and Snowboard Shop on Friday, October 30, 2015

There's no question about it - our staff is extremely passionate about skiing and snowboarding! Our passion for the sport helps deliver that outstanding personal customer service that one will find at each Buckman’s Ski and Snowboard Shop.

This season, we want to introduce you to some of our team members who have made us who we are today. Today’s “face behind the name” is Susan Mutter, hands down the best ski apparel buyer in the country!

Susan has been an avid skier for 32 years and has been working with Buckman’s since 1986. Her vast experience as a ski apparel buyer has made her one of the most respected buyers in the industry. In fact, many of the brands ask for Susan’s input as they plain their designs for the future. Needless to say, we couldn’t be happier to have her as our lead apparel buyer.

Susan told us that there are many reasons why she loves being part of the Buckman’s team, but one of her favorite things is being able to get to know the staff as she trains them on how to sell all the ski apparel properly, from all the technical aspects of each product to the fun designs and details. Of course, she also simply loves helping customers find the perfect product for their ski and snowboard needs.

When she is not busy training staff or helping customers, you can find her on the slopes. She told us that her favorite place to ski is Vail, Colorado because “that place is so huge that you can ski there for a week and still be able to discover new areas that you haven’t skied yet.” She told us that her favorite people to ski with are her husband and her daughter as she loves "the good talks on those long chair lift rides.” What can be better than family time skiing together and enjoying the breathtaking scenery!

This season, Susan will be rocking Atomic Elysian Skis and Lange RX100 LV Boots.

She is looking forward to some of the new lines we have coming to Buckman’s this season and simply cannot wait to get her hands on Krimsom Klover Sweaters and Picture Organic Clothing. This season she is particularly excited about the Ladies Obermeyer Clothing Collection.

Don’t you just hate it when you forget that one item at home? We've all been there! So we asked Susan for her number one recommendation for that item that is often overlooked. Her response was “A hat to put on after taking off your helmet to cover up that helmet hair.” Great answer, Susan!

Thanks for reading the inside scoop from one of our ski apparel buyers! Need a hand deciding what gear is best for you? Not sure what size skis are best for your build? Don’t worry- just stop into one of our six retail locations and our expert staff will be glad to assist you. If you are not local to Eastern Pennsylvania, then just head over to and shop our online store 24/7.

See you on the slopes!
