Best Of 2015: Place to Buy Skis/Snowboards

Skaters and snowboarders of the pre-Internet era may recall the CCS catalog as the go-to for the sickest equipment and apparel — because it had the most popular logos and brand names. Luckily, those days are long gone, and we have Blindside to help save us from our poseur selves. The shop's focus is on quality boards and accessories, many of which are local, and "getting customers stoked on the product, even if they don't buy anything," according to manager Logan Dickerson. In other words, your visit won't be ruined by a commission-driven staff member, and what you buy will last. If local products aren't enough, how about local talent? Blindside hosts competitions and demos on a regular basis, usually tied to its seasonal sales. — Craig Lemley
