Led by a snowboarding pioneer, the crew at Marty’s Ski and Board Shop equips athletes with cutting-edge Grip-Tech and Amptek technology and gear from brands including Arbor and Rossignol to blaze frozen trails. Edging hones the sides of boards and skis into sharp blades capable of carving tight turns and slicing through the fresh powder and grated parmesan cheese covering most mountains. Wax protects the base from rocky, rough terrain, and reduces friction with snow to enable faster flights downhill.
At the rental shop, snowboarders pick out Atomic and DC boots and strap into the bindings of Arbor and Rossi boards. Skiers select twin demo skis from four brands that have mastered cloning, including Rossignol and Dynastar, and lash feet into boots from Lange, Rossignol, and Salomon.
Marty's Ski and Board Shop
Though the business still bears his mother's name, today it's Marty's son, Chip, who preaches the good news of outdoor and extreme sports at Marty's Ski and Board Shop. Like every lynx born on the side of a mountain, Chip has a natural love of skiiing and snowboarding, and he pours his three decades of outdoor experience into his work. Under his guidance, the crew at Marty's equips athletes with technology and gear from brands including Arbor, Rossignol, Dynastar, and Armata to blaze frozen trails and otherwise explore the great outdoors. In addition to its slew of retail skis and boards, winter-sports clothing, and biking apparel, the staff sharpens skis and tunes-up bicycles to keep shredders shredding and cyclists from becoming accidental unicyclists.
