My stepson is going to need some new snowboard boots soon and we will be going through denver next month to do some shopping. Can anyone recomend a shop(s) that have a good selection and helpful staff in the denver area.

Thanks

Christy Sports, Colorado Ski&Golf, and BC Surf N Sport. The most knowledgeable guys are probably going to be BC and Christy's. Colorado Ski & Gold is hit or miss, but they do have a large selection. Stay away from REI and Sports Authority.

Depends on what you're looking for

Emage is my favorite personally

Thrifty sticks is full of assholes imo

REI has a bunch of mainstream stuff with the best warranty in the biz

Emage is the most "core" shop in Denver

Satellite boardshop in Boulder is the best shop that I know of in CO

I've boughten 3 pairs of boots from Colorado ski and golf. Some of their sales reps know their stuff but most are full of it. My experience with some of them is that they dont listen to what you are saying you want or how you ride, and they just try to sell you what they have in stock in your size. So I recommend you do some research first.

They do have a guarantee fit program though, and will tweak your boots anytime for free. I had some heel slip on my burton driver x's after about 12 days. Christof at the Littleton locations was very helpfull, and threw some new jbars in them and told me to come back if I continue to have issues and they will try some other things.

Oh I'm sorry I misread and thought you said "best" shop in Denver, not "boot" shop

Kill sorted you just right

Yeah, the thing that sucks about most of the smaller local shops is limited selection. My favorite local shop is Community Skate and Snow in old town Arvada.

BC? Really?

I did the tour of all the shops on the south side of Denver about two weeks ago and the kids working there were like 15 and talked like they were mentally handicapped.

My favorite shop in terms of employee knowledge was Eskimo. I didn't check out their boot selection though. They definitely seemed high-end only. I mean...they only stocked COLORADO made boards. That sort of limits the selection (in a pretty awesome way).


EDIT: 720 wasn't much better than BC in terms of employee knowledge but at least that place had adults working there and wasn't a Pacific Sunwear that happened to sell snowboards.

I agree about BC, in fact, I've also thought of it as basically a pacsun. Where is Eskimo?

Again, my vote is for Boulder Ski Deals, they don't have the largest selection of boots I've ever seen, but they are always well priced. If you find a deal anywhere else, they claim to to only meet it, but they'll beat it. When I bought my boots and board there, without my asking, they discounted both by $20-40, and let me use a 20% off coupon.
