Big news this week: our local ski touring shop, Cripple Creek Backcountry, opens store #2 in Vail Colorado. We are fans of backcountry boutiques and love to support retailers who promote our sport to the exclusion of such nefarious pursuits as bicycle riding and lift skiing (just kidding). Of course, specialty skimo shops like this run dangerously close to approving no sport unless it involves at least a square yard of spandex. But CCB hasn’t gone that far, yet, so we’re fans.
One of our most popular posts is Top Ski Shops Of The World. Can you find yours there?
