Sign up for a course or a trip and receive a 10% discount on purchases and a 20% discount on gear rental. Go to Pro Ski and Mountain Service
Pro Ski and Mountain Service is our retail specialty store. It has been located in North Bend, WA since 1999.
The past trips and courses have had a large influence on what we sell. Many of our Pro Guiding customers come on trips and courses with gear they purchased from our store. Not only do we want our clients to have the right gear for the job; we also receive direct feedback from them while they are using it in the field. Trust us - if the gear does not work - we won't sell it.
FAQ’SI AM AN INTERMEDIATE SKIER, BUT I WOULD LOVE TO GET INTO BC SKIING. CAN I TAKE THE COURSE?YOU SHOULD BE AT LEAST A VERY SOLID INTERMEDIATE SKIER, OR YOU WILL MOST LIKELY NOT ENJOY THE COURSE. SNOW CONDITIONS MAY VARY, SKI TOURING BOOTS ARE NOT AS SUPPORTIVE AS STANDARD ALPINE GEAR AND THE COURSE IS PHYSICALLY DEMANDING.WHAT IS THE GENERAL CHARACTER OF THE COURSE?THE COURSE IS MOVEMENT BASED. SKI TOURING PRINCIPLES ARE BEING EXPLAINED ON THE GO AND PRACTICAL APPLICATION IS INSTANT.WHAT ABOUT THE AVY COURSES YOU OFFER – DO YOU PREFER ONE OVER THE OTHER?WELL, IDEALLY YOU TAKE BOTH OF THEM. THE DESIGNS OF THESE TWO COURSES ARE VERY COMPLEMENTARY.
