Our motto of “Gear for Skiers by Skiers” is about as real as it gets. We’re not some city shop that’s nowhere near a mountain; we live and play in the heart of the Green Mountains in Stowe, Vermont. We have access to the best terrain and snow on the east coast, and we take full advantage of it. We actually get on the skis we sell to ensure that you find the proper setup for our customers. The staff at SkiEssentials has a passion for the outdoors, from skiing in the winter to hiking and mountain biking in the summer; it shows in our dedication to providing the best possible service, selection, content, and price. We love what we do here at, and hope to share some of that passion with our customers.
