10 Best Ski and Snowboard Stores in Utah

10 Best Ski and Snowboard Stores in Utah

Most Utahans will try to convince you that Utah has the best snow on earth. Regardless of whether you agree or not, there’s no question Utah is one of North America’s skiing and snowboarding hot spots. Unsurprisingly, the state’s incredible ski resorts are accompanied by a wide range of ski and snowboard stores that will ensure you have a successful day on the slopes. 

1. Board of Provo, Provo, UT

Board of Provo has been around forever, but you wouldn’t know, because the shop always manages to keep up to date on the latest skiing, snowboarding, and skateboarding trends. The employees at Board of Provo are passionate skiers and snowboarders, so if you have questions, they definitely have some answers. The shop is smaller than some, but you’ll always be able to find exactly what you’re looking for. 

2. Nyman’s Ski Shop, Orem, UT

If you’re looking for season rentals rather than to buy your own skis, Nyman’s Ski Shop is the best place in the Provo-Orem area to rent some good gear. Of course, you can also buy skis at Nyman’s, but their rental deals are tempting! Run by a family of very serious skiers, the shop has a similar vibe to Board of Provo, selling skiing accessories in addition to men’s and women’s skis. 

3. Wasatch Powder House, Holladay, UT

Wasatch Powder House sells biking and trail running apparel and equipment, but its specialty is skiing. In fact, its sister shop (the Deep Powder House) is one of Utah’s oldest, elite ski shops. There are four differently named Powder House shops in Utah, most of which are located at or near Alta Ski Area, but Wasatch Powder House is the easiest to access given its location in Salt Lake Valley. 

4. The Lift House, Salt Lake City, UT

The Lift House has served Utah skiers since 1972. Proudly known as “the biggest little ski shop in the West,” the Lift House is located near the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon and boasts “custom rental solutions.” Whatever your situation, the Lift House will try to work around it so that you can enjoy the ski season. In addition, the Lift House sells all of the major ski brands, such as Nordica and Spyder

5. Cole Sport, Park City, UT

Cole Sport is famous for its very own Park City moose statue, but also for its diverse selection of ski and snowboard equipment and apparel. This shop is known for its quality. At Cole Sport, you really do get what you pay for. Not to mention, the shop is a stone’s throw away from Utah’s most famous ski resorts. 

6. Salty Peaks Snowboard Shop, Salt Lake City, UT

Aptly named “Salty Peaks,” this shop has been around since 1987 and is one of Utah’s oldest snowboarding shops. Located at the base of the Wasatch Mountains in the East Millcreek area of Salt Lake City, Salty Peaks Snowboard Shop is conveniently placed and has everything you’ll need for snowboarding on the slopes or snowboarding in the city. Touting the best selection of snowboard rentals in Utah, the shop also sells boards and is home to a crew of skilled snowboard technicians that can tune up your old board so it rides like new. 

7. Milosport, Orem and Salt Lake City, UT

With locations in Salt Lake City and Orem, Milosport offers high-quality service to both Salt Lake Valley and Utah Valley residents. However, this is not a shop for skiers, but a shop for the most passionate of snowboarders who want to make sure they are staying up on the latest trends and equipment. Milosport and Salty Peaks Snowboard Shop are comparable in quality and selection.

8. Jan’s Mountain Outfitters, Park City, UT

Jan’s Mountain Outfitters is a well-known shop that sells equipment for many snow sports, meaning that if you’re in Park City and want to try skiing but also want to try snowshoeing, the store’s staff will be able to answer a range of different questions relating to a range of activities. Servicing a large number of tourists and locals every year, Jan’s is a superb place to buy or rent ski and snowboard equipment. 

9. AJ Motion Sports, Multiple locations

With three convenient locations in Solitude, Sandy, and Cottonwood Heights, AJ Motion Sports is a solid snow sport shop with expert knowledge on the area. Not only does the shop sell discounted lift tickets to a variety of major Utah ski resorts, but it has an expansive amount of competitively priced inventory. 

10. Alpine Sports, Ogden, UT

The only ski shop located north of Salt Lake City on this list, Alpine Sports is the iconic ski shop every Utah town needs. With a helpful staff, a large selection of skis and snowboards (as well as rental options), an amazing brand selection, and local ownership, this is the perfect place to buy gifts for your ski or snowboard junkie. 

Now we just need some snow!
