linvillegorge Yep, Christy's is seasonal. They're a fucking a patio furniture store during the summer. LOL

killclimbz BC isn't seasonal, they have snow gear out year round. REI is most definitely seasonal and their guys are not very knowledgeable either. I am pretty sure Christy's is seasonal though.

I forgot to mention Larson's. I forget how good their selection is, but they are very knowledgeable there. Plus they are also right off of I70 too. Very easy on/off if you are headed the resort way.

Sick-Pow Larson's up in Wheat ridge, great boot fitters. Or Eskimo down in centennial.

BC sucks. REI sucks, all seasonal. Colorado ski and golf is hit or miss. Arvada store is very good.

When I was there, they only stocked NS, Venture, and Unity boards and I only saw Union and Rome bindings (but wasn't looking).

Definitely higher end stuff.

The BC guys who generally work the upstairs with the boots have been pretty good with their product knowledge. Most of them are 20 somethings there and not teens. They also have a good boot selection. My experience is with the Park Meadows store not the Flatirons one. Take it for what it's worth.

You may also check out Emage in downtown Denver. I think their selection may be limited.
Colorado Ski and Golf has some very knowledgeable staff, when they are working there and some ski dude isn't filling in at the snowboard boot section.

Overall, I think Christy's might be the easiest to find and they have a solid selection. There is one by Denver West on the way up I70 to the resorts. A quick on and off from the highway.

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.
Centennial. In a sketchy strip mall between two buildings. All the hardware was in the basement and the sales guy was probably the most knowledgeable I have ever talked to in a shop.

Voted Best Ski and Snowboard Shop in Denver, Colorado 4 years in a row // Eskimo Ski & Board Shop

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.

2hipp4u Thanks for the help guys

linvillegorge 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.
