Goodbye Ski Shop Scaries

Outside of her day-to-day in the eCommerce world with Marker, Dalbello, Völkl ski company, Barclay Rappeport is a fellow female skier, a coach at Mad River Glen, a wife to a ski patroller, and a mother to teenage twin boys. Basically... she's a badass. 

Barclay has been skiing for over 40 years and has started to see a common trend with female skiers - ski shop scaries*. Skiing has historically been known as a male-dominated industry and many ski companies, like MDV, are embracing change. Taking girl power to the next level, MDV designs female-specific equipment and has an incredibly strong team of female skiers to back it up. 

*Ski shop scaries are the feeling of the discouragement or lack of confidence to walk into a ski shop because you are a newbie or a female skier.

Take It From The Pro

Barclay teaches us how to ditch the ski shop scaries and start walking into the ski shop like a boss. She first tells us what to know as a first-time shopper, then how to appropriately shop for the equipment that will best serve you.

A bit of wisdom from Barclay: treat your time at the ski shop (and on the slopes) like a spa day. She recommends taking at least an hour in a shop to explore, talk with a pro, and find the gear that's right for you. Equipment shopping is time and money invested in YOU. With the right equipment, you too could find yourself skiing for 40+ years.

Say goodbye to ski shop scaries and walk into the shop like a boss. Watch the video for the full scoop on everything from boot fittings, to what skis might work for your style, and how to conquer the ski season.
