“Consistent, high quality service. Knowledgeable staff. This is THE locals shop for tunes and gear! Plus you can’t get any closer to the slopes for storage and service! Treat yourself…”
“Fantastic shop! …they have all the skis I lust over available for demo. Although the skis are top notch, the customer service is the best part. Great people who keep their cool and still take care of each customer as if they were the only one even at peak times. They offer rental, quick tunes, storage and are literally located at the gondola, so just drop your stuff and don’t trek it back to your room before après ski. Lastly, the prices are fair, if not excellent.”
“You won’t find a more knowledgeable staff than the VBSR staff. Steps away from Gondola One in Vail Village. Great place to stash your equipment overnight. Barclay did a full tune on my skis and they grip and rip like brand new! …better than brand new! Best tune you can get in this town bar none. Great place for beginners and experts alike.”
