Best Ski Shop
Vail Ski Tech
Buzz Schlepper has ski shops in his blood. His father owned one, and he’s become the first name in snowplay gear in Vail. “I have clients who have been shopping with me from day one,” said the owner of Buzz’s Skis. “I have a great repeat business: People who shop here once keep coming back.” And though on most days he can be found at his shop, he credits his staff with his success. It’s a good year to be in the ski business in Vail ” the powder just keeps coming. They’re selling a lot of K2 Lotta Luv skis to women, while men are opting for the twin tips.
Vail Sports has locations all over the valley, including Beaver Creek, Vail Village and Lionshead. The large operation is staffed by employees who go above and beyond. Vail Ski Tech is known as “Vail’s friendliest ski specialists.” It’s also one of the busiest. The Lionshead shop rents, sells and repairs skis after a day of hard play.
