Ski Haus

Don’t be fooled by our name, Ski Haus is many things to many people! You’ve probably seen our commercials stating just that… and it’s so true. Ski Haus is much more than just Skis. Among other things, we’ve been specializing in snowboards since the Steamboat Ski Resort first allowed snowboarders to ride the lifts way back in 1987 (that’s 25 years for those of you keeping track)!

We have been there as the sport has evolved from wooden decks with what can only be described as “waterski-style” bindings to the highly advanced boards, boots, and bindings of today.

As snowboarding has matured as a sport, and popularity has grown among all types of riders, the equipment has become much more specialized. With so many choices out there it’s important to have someone who can point you in the right direction. At Ski Haus, we have a dedicated staff of snowboarders who are here to answer all of your questions and help you determine what equipment will work best for you. We ride what we sell. If you find it at Ski Haus, it’s for good reason. We carry what we do because it’s what we choose to ride ourselves!

Ski Haus employee, Logan Ammon is all about the 2012 Turbo Dream from K2. He has a quiver of decks, but loves the versatility of the Turbo Dream making it his go-to ride this season. The All-Terrain Rocker aims to please giving the board a playful feel at slower speeds and while making park laps without sacrificing the all-important edge hold he requires when testing the speed limit. With a setback stance, medium rise through the tip, and a lower rise in the tail, Logan enjoys effortless turns on hardpack and plenty of float in the Champagne Pow we’re all praying for. Harshmellow dampening fights off fatigue-inducing vibration and a Carbon-Web inlay gives the Turbo Dream that trampoline pop Logan can’t live without!

Stop by the ‘Haus today to chat with Logan or one of our other snowboard experts and allow us the opportunity to get you set up with the best gear, the best fit, and the best day on the hill! (Yes, that’s Logan in the photos. No, we didn’t ask him for those shots… I think they came from his private collection).
