Chris Chapman is a self-described “ski bum” who gets to do what he loves. He's the owner of Snow Sport Deals, an eBay top-rated seller of used ski equipment. In the early years, the company was primarily a ski and snowboard equipment wholesaler, but in 1998 he began to resell items online. Chris started by just selling skis, but today he has expanded his product offering into skiing boots, accessories and much more.
A Washington Post article featuring Chris showcased the success of Snow Sports Deals as an example of “how to re-envision a bricks-and-mortar business, harness it to the internet and turn it into a 21st-century success.” The company procures a lot of its merchandise from large ski resorts, then resells it to other ski resorts or direct to consumers on eBay. When he’s not working on his thriving ecommerce business, you can find Chris hitting the slopes – still doing what he loves on his own schedule.
