Icey Shop Spotlight - Powder 7
Winter is on its way back to the Colorado high country, friends, and chairlifts will be spinning in just a few weeks. That means local ski shops are hard at work getting folks geared up for the season. In honor of that noblest of endeavors, we're going take some time to highlight our favorite places to buy Icelantic skis in North America.
Why are they so rad: Well, the shop dog, a terrier named Gulliver, is pretty badass. And, in addition to the new skis, boots, bindings, etc., that you'll find at other shops, they have a thousand different used demo skis for sale--offering an attractive alternative for people who don't necessarily want to spend a grand on new gear. It's also cool that you can browse (and buy) every single thing they've got online at <a href="http://www.powder7.com">
Pro tips: When you go, make sure you take a look at the original artwork in the store, particularly the painted doors by Powder7's own Sarah Beabout. One door features Wolf Creek's Knife Ridge, the other shows the rugged San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado. If you're lucky, shop owner Jordan might even play barista and pull you a steaming shot of espresso from a sparkling chrome La Pavoni espresso maker. You can also watch through a window while ski techs mount your new Icelantic skis or feed them through their massive Austrian Wintersteiger machine for a fresh tune while you wait.
Where they at: You can visit their brick-and-mortar store at 880 Brickyard Circle in Golden, CO. or shop their entire inventory including the latest 2017 skis from Icelantic, and those sweet, sweet used demos online at powder7.com
Their Facebook game is strong, too.
