None of us – ski bums who live in the mountains, weekend warriors who only get a few trips a year, even professional skiers – get enough time on the hill.
We all want more – more runs, more turns, more powder, more fun.
So why waste your time on the wrong skis with a bad tune or waste a powder day in painful boots?
At the Start Haus – we have one goal: to make your time skiing better. Your times on the race course faster. Your bell-to-bell days, from first chair to last run, more comfortable.
We do that with an unflinching dedication to the best equipment and the best service. Walk into the shop or browse around our site, and you’ll see an extensive selection of skis, boots, bindings, accessories and clothing hand picked by industry veterans to give you the best selection so you get the right piece of equipment. Equipment we’d ski ourselves, because we do.
Our ski tuners are sought out by World Cup ski racers, and they can insure your day isn’t ruined by bad edges or sticky bases, so you have more fun, more speed and more control.
Our award-winning bootfitters can perform miracles on ski boots so you don’t suffer through the day in pain, maintaining perfect control over your skis without a pressure point or hot spot.
And on our website we aim to educate, helping you make the right decision through our detailed ski reviews from experts who have actually spent time on each ski. Our Bootfitter’s Notes give you an inside look on different boots, their design, and how they fit different people. And our Youtube Channel gives you an inside look and a face-to-face feel interacting with the Start Haus staff.
We’re stubborn in our desire to see you have the best days on the slope – we’ll talk you out of a sale if we think it’s the wrong thing for you.
We can do better – but we need your help. Some of our expertise comes from you, whether its your feedback on the boot we’re fitting you in, or your experience with a pair of skis after days on the hill. So we’re asking you to help your fellow skiers and leave a review on a product you have experience using, tell a story about working with the Start Haus to get a perfect fit – whatever you want.
We will continue to strive to be the best ski shop, with the best equipment and the best service, and we look forward to working with you.
