2014 skis are in the house ...

New skis, boots and accessories have arrived in the house .... and we have set up the shop for winter. Just when we thought that skis couldn't get any better ... they have! The new aspect of this is really the mainstream emergence of the negative rocker concept on these fatties ... check out the Atomic Atlas, the Dynastar Cham series, the Line Influence 115, and of course the Volkl One!

Dynastar's Cham series is a next-generation, freeride-adventure line built in the shadow of Chamonix, the birthplace of extreme skiing.

Dynastar’s handcrafted, high-quality construction combined with the new Levitation Profile delivers a unique, user-friendly blend of float, maneuverability and stability in all snow conditions. With powerful, reliable and versatile performance, the Cham series redefines “freeride.”


As the big gun in Dynastar's new Cham series, the Cham 127 is an expert-level ski built to deliver the ultimate punch in the big mountains.

With 127mm underfoot and the long rocker in the tip, be prepared to float like a cork in the deep stuff.

bootfiting is our specialty

Footbeds, grinding and punching ... just some of the services we provide to make your ski experience better. Your boots should be comfortable as slippers ... really!

the Atomic Tracker is here!

The next generation of backcountry bindings, the Atomic Tracker 16 provides the power, precision and on-snow feel of a high-performance freeride binding, with the benefits of a very convenient hiking system.

Atomic's engineers and athletes wanted to create an Alpine Touring binding that sat low to the ski, could handle being mounted on a wide ski and was not only easy to switch between ski and tour but was also very secure.
