David Wolfgang


David Wolfgang learned how to ski in the hills of Vermont and is now the owner of Pinnacle Ski and Sports as well as Skiessentials.com. He brings an obvious wealth of knowledge to the ski test and has a unique perspective as a retailer and a skier. With 62 years of skiing experience, David has seen a thing or two over the years. He prefers steep and deep terrain, and currently skis on models that have between a 96 and 104 mm waist width. He’s a busy guy but when he’s not in ski mode, he loves to head to Long Island where he fishes and sails. His favorite skier is Inner Bootworks manager Benny Wax, who has a contagious love for the sport of skiing. The most important piece of gear for David is his boot heaters because if you can’t feel your feet, then what have you got?
