Best Store for Skis

Gull Ski & Snowboard

Glenn Gaertner has been managing Gull Ski & Snowboard for 30 years, and he figures his shop has been at the top of the—ahem—mountain for so long for five reasons: “We have the selection, the pricing, the customer service, the product knowledge, and we all ski.” Having basically the same crew year after year allows Gull to offer a consistency that might not be found in other retailers. Downhillers have been counting on Gull since they started up in 1952. The family-owned business continues to be a rock-solid resource for skiers and snowboarders who don’t want the hard sell. “We sell you what you need,” says Gaertner, “not what we’re trying to get rid of.” Gull Ski & Snowboard: 2601 W. Broadway, 549-5613,
