Meet Mike Masterson

Hometown: Groveland, MA

Years of Experience: 16 years of skiing, training to be the best alpine boot fitter I can be!

Outside Interests and Hobbies: Skiing of course, but also hiking, fly-fishing, skateboarding, and just being outside.

Favorite Gear: The Salomon Shift binding - because it can really do it all. The Line Blend for buttering around the park and the rest of the mountain as well. The Armada Tracer 108's because they are pretty lightweight, making them the perfect option for some deeper snow tours.

Favorite local outdoor destination(s): Definitely Stowe! There are so many options for what you want to ski - from a good park, to steep chutes hidden in the Notch (also Cabot Cheese store for all the best cheese samples on the way home!).

Fun Fact or Story: I am currently a senior at Champlain College, studying Management and Innovation. After graduation, I hope to put my education to use in the ski industry, so I can still chase some powder days!
