Gear Heads Corner — Highlighting Our Partners
Gear can make or break your ski vacation. For this reason, Ski Butlers offers industry leading skis and boards from Rossignol and Dynastar, as well as clothing and goggles from Smith, Patagonia, and Smartwool. The ski hill is no fun if you can’t see through your scratched goggles, have frozen feet because your cotton tube socks don’t wick away moisture, and you’re on a pair of skis that should be hanging in a museum rather than on your feet!
Rossignol — “Another Best Day” is the ethos of the entire Rossignol line-up. Whether you are a never ever or a hard charging ripper, Rossi has a ski for you. Our performance package at Ski Butlers features auto-turn rocker. This technology combines traditional camber throughout most of the ski, with a slight upturn (or rocker) in the tip and tail. The result is a ski that engages a turn with less effort while still providing moderate power and performance. In our high performance package, Rossignol returned the popular Experience 88. the E‑88 is one of the most versatile skis in the industry. The E‑88 delivers lightning quick slalom turns with an aggressive sidecut, traditional camber underfoot, and extraordinary maneuverability in moguls and moderate float in powder with an early rise tip. This season, Rossignol introduced the award winning Soul 7, which is featured in our powder line package. This ski features game changing technology with its patented honeycomb air tip. The Soul tip and tail has a honeycomb structure that is laminated to keep the space empty. This reduced the overall swing weight of the ski. This technology, combined with an all paulownia wood core and powder turn rocker, has created a ski that can float in the deepest powder, shred the tightest trees, and lay over beautiful GS turns on the groomers. A true one ski quiver.
Smith — Smith leads the industry in snow sports optics. The I/O set the standard for interchangeable lense system that is user-friendly and extremely cool. While the Cadence and Sentry provide excellent vision and affordability for kids, teens, and adults with smaller faces. Aside from optics, Smith also has a deep line of helmets to keep you safe while out on the slopes. As we have seen in the last few years, very few skiers or riders choose not to wear a helmet when on the mountain. We feel safety is an important piece to an enjoyable skiing experience and encourage all of our customers and friends to wear a helmet.
Patagonia — Patagonia’s technical and stylish design with keep you warm and looking at home around the resort. No mountain town wardrobe is complete without a Patagonia down sweater hanging in the closet. New this year to the Ski Butlers store is patagonia retail products.

Smartwool products have you covered. Smartwool socks and base layers wick moisture away from your skin so you can stay warm.
