You can feel it in the air. The rain we are getting will be turning to snow and that means skiing, snowboarding or whatever winter fun you like.

But your equipment has been stuffed into a closet or storage shed and in need of some TLC. So where do you go to get your skis and snowboards ready for the season? What about clothing?

Glad you asked.

The Board and Buckle

A North Avenue staple for years, there are many who only let these guys take care of their ski equipment. Excellent service and knowledgeable people make this the only stop for many in the Grand Valley. Whether it's getting your skis and boards ready, or getting new bindings for your boots, these guys will hook you up right.

REI Co-op

You need the best performance from your skis and snowboards as you can get, so why not go to the folks who not only know skiing and snowboarding but do it themselves? From bindings to board and skis and outerwear, you will find what you want right here.

BC Surf and Sport

Admittedly, having your skis and boards set to go for the season is only part of the game. No need to go out on the slopes looking all raggedy. In addition to goggles and coats, get your own wax for your skis or snowboard and own the slopes. You will find these guys in the Mesa Mall.

Summit Canyon Mountaineering

Brand names you know and love, gear you need and want, whatever you're looking for, they probably have it here. Boots, bindings, coats, gloves, goggles and more await you. Get geared up and ready.

Powderhorn Resort

If you don't want to buy your equipment, they always have rentals available, as well as a repair show for your stuff it gets broken or just needs a little love. Affordable tune-up options for your gear as well.
