I am Doug Ryan. I run the outdoor activity and gear review website EndlessRushOutdoors.com. I am an avid skier, paddleboarder and sailor from Michigan. We ski Michigan and travel out west several times a winter. We hope to ski Japan and Europe in the next few winters. We understand that good gear can make it break your experience skiing and doing other outdoor sports. We also run a skiing and outdoor activity meetup in Michigan where we organize ski trips and constantly get asked for gear advice.
