Marcus Shakun


Marcus Shakun is our inventory manager and buyer here at Skiessentials.com, so he has a thorough knowledge of pretty much every ski in existence. He’s been skiing for 16 years and gets over 50 days per year. Learning to ski at the aptly named Powder Ridge in Connecticut, Marcus has definitely brought those skills to Vermont in a big way. His preferred terrain these days is somewhere where there aren’t many other skiers—he likes his own tracks and who can blame him? He’s got an extensive ski quiver, so he can choose what he wants depending on the day because that’s a perk of the job. His favorite skiers are his kids, and his most important piece of gear is his phone charger (sadly). Marcus’ knowledge and experience make him an invaluable piece of the ski test.
