Commonly Asked Questions: 


How far in advance should I get fitted? We encourage everyone to come in as early as possible, but realistically two days in advance from when you plan to leave on your ski trip. After you've been fitted, our shop will make the proper adjustments to your skis or snowboard, and they will email or call you for pickup. Our system will save your size and measurements, making it easier and more convenient for the next time you need daily rentals!


When do you charge my card? We will charge your card when you come in to get fit and make your reservation. Each additional day on the mountain is $10 extra. 


When do I need to return my skis by?  We give each customer a grace period of two days for travel time! For example, if you are skiing Saturday and Sunday, you will have Friday to pick up your skis and then can return them on Monday.  

 

 

New 2017 Skis

11/10/2016


Last winter lacked a little in the snow department, but El Nino is long gone and we can't wait for the return of winter! Last February we got a sneak preview of the 2017 skis at our Demo Days up in Vermont, where we tested every single model to determine which skis our customers would love the most. These new skis are officially ready and waiting on our sales floor, and we've put together a quick overview of the ones we are most excited about. It't time to start planning your winter adventures--we'll see you at the mountain!

 


Nordica Enforcer 93
nordicastaff
m_nordica
This is a brand new men's ski not only for our shop, but for Nordica. It makes for an excellent all-mountain ski and is both stable and maneuverable at any speed. It has won numerous awards from various ski magazines, including #3 overall ski for its waist width category. ($649.99)



Stockli Laser AX 
stocklistaff
m_stockli
We are proud to be one of only a few Stockli dealers in all of New England! This ski is a wonderful frontside option. It includes a new technology called Turtle Shell, which allows the skis to actually become stiffer at higher speeds and hold an edge better when more energy is applied. The Laser AX won Tester's Choice in Skier Magazine. ($1199)



Salomon QST 
salomonstaff
m_salomon
After testing these skis at our Demo Days last February, our staff reached the unanimous conclusion that these were the best budget-friendly skis any of us have ever skied! They are a great option for the intermediate to expert level skier. ($399.99)




K2 Alluvit 88
k2staff
w_k2
These lightweight, all-mountain skis perform like champs in any condition. They are wider in the shovel, making them great for powder skiing, but they are narrow enough for quick and easy turning. ($599.99)




Head Absolute Joy 
headstaff
w_head
These women's skis are made with graphene, a material that is said to be the strongest, lightest, and thinnest material around. They have medium flex, making it easy to initiate a turn at slow speeds while remaining very stable at high speeds. This is a system ski, which means they come with the bindings. ($549.99)




Blizzard Quattro 7.4 CA 
blizzardstaff
w_blizzard
These women's skis are made with Blizzard's signature Flipcore construction, meaning that rocker is built into the mold. They are light and lively, great for intermediate to advanced skiers, and are also system skis. ($599.99)

Ski Necessities

10/20/2016


Ski season is coming up fast, and those items that you might think of as accessories to your ski outfit are in fact full blown necessities. Your helmet and goggles will keep you safe on the trail, and your gaiter or neckwarmer will do far more to keep you warm and dry than a tradition scarf. We have lots of new, innovative products in our ski shop this year along with tried and true favorites that we continue to stand by. 


One feature we are very excited about in many of our new helmets is MIPS. MIPS is a multi-directional impact protection system.  Between the helmet and your head there is a low friction liner that helps reduce rotational energy to the brain in an angle impact.  More simply said, by having the MIPS layer in the helmet, there is less chance of a concussion to the brain. Our current helmets are now 85% MIPS equipped, and by next year will be 100%.

giro

Giro Range - The Range (unisex) and Stellar (women's specific) have the smallest profiles of any other helmet on the market. They are made with Conform Fit Technology, which not only removes excess bulk and gives them a sleeker look, but also changes the way you adjust the helmet. When you tighten your helmet, it's not just the back strap on the inside that tightens, but the actual shell of the helmet conforms to your head. ($250)

Giro Contact - the Contact from Giro uses magnets in its Lens Interchange System to make switching your lenses incredibly quick and easy. The Contact comes with two premium lenses, one for bright sunshine and the other for more overcast conditions. ($240)

Skida Alpine Neckwarmer - This Vermont-based brand creates colorful, printed neckwarmers made of a poly-blend outer fabric to wick moisture away, and a Polartec micro-fleece lining to keep your neck and face toasty warm. ($24)




poc

POC Skull Orbix - This helmet is FIS-certified, which is mandatory for racing in any sanctioned USSA race. Most helmets are made from EPS (expanded polystyrene) material, and are considered "one and done"--if you have one major impact, you need to replace the helmet. However, the Skull Orbix is made with EPP (expanded polypropelyne), which can withstand multiple impacts. ($200)

Oakley Airbrake - This goggle comes with 2 Prizm lenses, enhance the visibility of snow texture and cover a wide range of light conditions. These goggles come with one lens that is best for overcast days and one that performs well in both sunny and cloudy conditions. ($240)

Turtle Fur The Turtle's Neck - The original double-layer fleece neck warmer for kids will keep your little ones warm and cozy on even the coldest days. ($18)



smith

Smith Vantage - While most adjustable helmets just have one strap around the back that tightens, the Vantage incorporates a dual BOA adjustment system that wraps around 360 degrees for an enhanced fit. It has MIPS to offer extra protection, and dual ventilation so that you can close the vents if it gets too cold. It also has a feature called Koroyd, which is a layer beneath the exterior that (looks like a honeycomb, and) increases impact resistance. ($270)

Smith Scope - The Scope goggle is one of Smith's best-selling items. Smith uses airflow lens technology and a Fog-X anti-fog inner lens to keep things clear and fog-free in all conditions. ($70)

BUFF Polar BUFF - The Polar BUFF has a cylindrical piece of Classic Polartech fleece sewn into one end for added warmth. BUFF products are very versatile and can be work as a neeck warmer, headband, mask, balaklava, beanie... the list goes on! ($32)


girokids

Giro Crue - This is one of the few children's helmets on the market with MIPS, making it an excellent choice for little skiers and riders. In addition, it has a considerably harder shell than a lot of other kid's helmets, making it particularly durable. ($75)

Anon Tracker - The Tracker goggle for kids features cylindrical lens technology to decrease distortion, and Over-the-Glasses (OTG) compatibility, allowing kids to have more worry-free fun on the slopes. ($54.95)

Turtle Fur Comfort Shell Frostklava Print Jr. - These vibrant Balaclavas cover the head and neck for extra warmth. They are made of moisture-wicking, quick-drying fabric and lined with soft micro fleece, and fit comfortably under the helmet. ($24)

Commonly Asked Questions:


How long does it take to get fitted?

It takes around 15-20 minutes for us to go through the whole process of fitting each person.


What is the turnaround time for me to get my ski package?
After you've been fitted, our shop will make the proper adjustments to your skis or snowboard, and they will be ready for pick up in one week.


When do you start to run out?

We encourage everyone to come in as early as possible; being that rental season opens September 1st, the supply of skis and boards dwindles by December, so try to come in sooner for the largest selection!


When is the best time to beat the crowd?

We recommend coming in anytime during the week or bringing your kids to get fitted after school! Weekends and school holidays tend to be busier with a longer wait time.


Do you have twin tips?

We only have junior size twin tips in a small quantity, so come in early for these!


Can you rent helmets?

We don't rent helmets, and we encourage everyone to buy their own helmet. Renting helmets can be risky for safety reasons.


How old can my child start renting?

When your children start skiing depends more on their size than their age. If your children can fit safely and comfortably into a pair of ski boots, you can begin to teach them to ski!


Are there any other options besides renting to get great skis for my kids?

We know that children grow rapidly, and renting is often the most practical option until they stop growing. However, if you would prefer to buy brand new equipment for your child rather than rent, our Junior Buy Back Program gives credit towards new equipment when your kids grow to need a bigger size. If you return equipment in usable condition after one year, you will receive a 60% credit towards your next ski purchase. After two years, you will receive a 40% credit if you return usable equipment. Deal only viable for the same child, with the original receipt to receive credit. Please ask for more details.


What is the cost of the rental program?

Rental prices vary by age rather than by the size of the equipment. Ages 12 and under rent at junior prices and 13 and older are adults. See above for a more specific list of our rental prices!
