Have you ever picked up the phone and called SkiEssentials.com? There’s about a 33% chance Jake answered. Jake is a full time member of our customer service team. He’s been skiing for over 20 years and learned right here in Stowe, a mountain that has produced a lot of very capable skiers. Jake describes his favorite terrain as “steep and deep” and his current ski of choice is the Atomic Automatic 102, a great choice for that type of terrain. Jake has excellent ski technique, although considers himself a fairly careful skier. When the snow melts leaving behind tacky dirt, you’ll find Jake ripping local mountain bike trails, DH tracks all over New England, and snapping some of the best action photos and videos at pro level events.
