Telemark Skiing

 We sell  Telemark,  Alpine Touring,  and Metal Edged Back Country / Cross Country Skis,  Boots and Bindings, as well as climbing skins, and Atlas Snowshoes. We talk ‘ Tele’ , ‘AT’, ‘BC’ and ‘XC’  like no other shop in the area, and we’ve been here the longest.

 We still promote ‘square toe’ ‘Tele’ , recommending Scarpa boots, and 22 Designs,  free pivot bindings… but also have NTN Tele,  for the skiers who want more power. We can mount any free heel Telemark binding out there. We have all the ‘jigs’ , and expertise, to update, or re-create your Telemark needs, whether your new to the sport, or have been ‘Teleing’ for over 40 years, like we have.

Alpine Touring Skiing

With 20+ years of experience there, and growing with the sport, we prefer and promote, the lightweight gear for side and back country skiing, because we  know all about “earning your turns”, and how much weight, and flexibility matters! We can teach you all about the ‘uphill’ … and the downhill… on Alpine Touring equipment.

Time to Hike For it!
