Ski and Surf Shop caries all-mountain, all-mountain wide, and powder skis. Twin-tip and a few freestyle or park skis are also in our inventory. Our ski brands include Atomic, Dynastar, Line, and K2.
Front-side All-Mountain Skis The all mountain skis we offer are excellent for carving with their rocker tips, deep sidecuts, and narrow waists. They hold an edge on groomers and hard snow. These skis are best suited for groomed terrain, moguls and some powder. Perfect for Mount Washington here on Vancouver Island! All mountain skis are great for all ages, experts and total beginners. These skis are the most popular choice.
All-Mountain Mid Skis Best for groomed runs and powder. All Mountain wide skis are able to do all terrain! These skis can also be referred to as mid-fats or fats. The waist measurement is from 91mm to 109mm. The wider waist helps with flotation in soft snow while keeping the control on the groomed flats. All mountain mid skis help with stability in variable snow conditions.
Powder Skis If you like your snow deep and powerful, these skis are for you. After a big snow dump in Courtenay, BC, these “super-flats” will enhance flotation and give a playful surf-like feel especially with a rocker. Precise turns on groomed runs are not the greatest, however, this ski ski type will make the most of any powder day on the mountain. The waist widths are usually 100mm or higher.
Stay dry and warm on those west coast pow days with functional ski wear from Quiksilver, O'Neill, Roxy, Mountain Hardwear, and Outdoor Research. We offer a range of ski jackets and pants including insulated, waterproof, breathable shells that keep you warm and dry. Your ski or snowboard days will be memorable and fun with the quality ski wear brands we carry.
