Dave Marryat


This is Dave Marryat’s second year testing with us and we love his unique input. He’s the head ski tech at Pinnacle Ski and Sports in Stowe and is also a snowboarder. He gets in about 6 ski days per year, 2 of them being our test days. As a result, he gets a different perspective on skis than most people on the planet. He knows what a good ski should feel like because he’s had so many of them in his hands from a mounting and tuning perspective. In the summer he’s a mountain biker. His favorite skier is Steve Sulin, manager at Pinnacle Ski and Sports. Currently Dave likes to ski the Blizzard Brahma, the Volkl Kendo, and the Armada Tracer. His most important piece of gear is his goggles, and if he were the raccoon that he wants to be, then those goggles could cover his eye patches.
