Meet Sam Cowan

Hometown:Lake Placid, NY

Years of Experience: I have been skiing all my life. After chasing powder in Utah, I'm back east fitting downhill ski boots and getting people excited for winter!

Certifications and Awards: Masterfit University Associate Boot Fitter

Outside Interests and Hobbies: My summers are full of hiking and climbing in the Green Mountains and the Adirondacks. My winters bring on the hunt for the best snow in the east, and are full of backcountry and resort laps.

Favorite Gear: Salomon Mtn Labs: Lightweight AT boot the doesn't sacrifice performance on the slopes. Salomon QST 106: All mountain charger, with great soft snow performance. Salomon Ride: Trail running shoe with the best grip and feel for Green Mountain Schist!

Favorite local outdoor destination(s): Bolton Ski Resort: Great downhill skiing, with the added bonus of night skiing and great backcountry access! And when summer comes around, the Adirondacks are a great place to get lost and have fun!
