How This Skier Conquers The Slopes With AfterShokz

Whether you're on a conference call in the office or staying alert on the slopes, our team loves to learn how you use your AfterShokz.

This week, we caught up with Megan F. an AfterShokz customer and a ski Instructor in Ontario, Canada. Megan wears her AfterShokz headphones during physical activities such as, hiking and skiing. To better understand why she chooses AfterShokz headphones, we asked her a few questions about what she does and how her AfterShokz play a role. You didn’t hear it from us, check out what Megan had to say below! 

What kind of sports do you love to do?

I love to hike with my dog and ski. While I ski, my AfterShokz fit perfectly beneath my helmet, and I can hear people skiing up behind me so that I am aware and safe.

What's the craziest experience you've had on the slopes?

I grew up downhill ski racing, so I have so many great memories and crazy stories. One of my favorites is when the lifties would let us take our GT Snow racers up the chairlift after hours; ride them down the hills and off the tabletop jumps! Another of my favorite experiences at my home hill is the annual dummy downhill: 

What would you say to people that haven’t tried Aftershokz yet?

I am always telling people how much I love my AfterShokz! They have great sound, are more comfortable than ear buds, you can still hear some things around you (such as cars), and if you get a call it is easy to answer with the Bluetooth and speaker. Plus, they work with my new smartphone!

Has there been any specific time that your Aftershokz came in handy?

I think I always find that the fact that I can receive calls on my AfterShokz the handiest. I never miss a call and if I am on the treadmill or skiing it is easy to answer. I didn’t realize this was a feature before I got my first pair and it was a great surprise. 

What motivates you to get out everyday and hit the mountains? Do you have any advice for people new to skiing?

Our ski season seems to be so short these days, I always want to make the very most of it before it’s gone! I also love sharing my favorite sport with friends and teaching youngsters to ski. PIZZA! And even the best skiers fall down!
