Best Ski Shop — Best of Vail Valley 2019

1. Buzz’s Ski Shop

2. Vista Bahn Ski Rentals

3. Christy Sports Ski & Snowboard Rentals

Running a ski shop is in Buzz Schlepper’s blood. He grew up in his father’s ski shop in Minnesota, and, while in grade school, made trips out to Colorado to ski, which included stops at this new ski resort called Vail.

It was seemingly pre-ordained that Buzz would open his own shop in Vail, now conveniently located just one block from Gondola One. Buzz’s shop sells, rents, tunes and repairs skis and the accompanying necessities and apparel. Rossignol, K2, Blizzard, Armada and Faction skis are among those available.

“If it has to do with skis, we’ve got it covered,” he said.

With a great selection comes great customer service for tourists and locals alike.
