Marcus Shakun


Marcus Shakun has become fully ingrained in the ski industry. He is the inventory manager and one of the hardgood buyers for SkiEssentials.com. Marcus spends a lot of time throughout the season testing different skis while making buying decisions for the coming season. He and Steve Sulin have likely skied more 2018 skis than any of our other testers thanks to the amount of industry demo events they attend. Marcus has found his home in the northern Vermont mountains. He prefers to ski in the woods whenever possible and has a lot of different skis in his quiver, but typically is one something 100 mm or wider with both rocker and camber. Marcus approached our ski test with a lot of experience and his responses and feedback were very valuable.
