  1. Bentgate is probably the best shop in CO! They are local and very knowledgable. Neptune Mountaineering is another good shop in Boulder, CO they are good and know their climbing gear! Neptune doesn’t do custom boot fitting so I would avoid them for Ski gear. Neptune is better for climbing gear than Bent gate but that is because of the old climbing legends (ie. Malcolm) that work at Neptune. But Bent Gate knows their ski gear! Any other shop along the CO Front Range sucks IMO. That includes REI, Outpost Sun Sport, Scheels, Gearage, Feral, Moose Jaw, and etc. Wilderness exchange is pretty good but they have a small selection and are a good place to get used clothing. There is nothing in Fort Collins they are all terrible for backcountry skiing or climbing shops. Maybe On the Edge Tunning (in FoCo) can compete but they are brand new. If you want experts to talk seriously about gear I recommend Bent Gate (for ski gear), Neptune Mountaineering (for climbing gear), and Wilderness Exchange (better for climbing gear and I would avoid for ski boot fittings). I hope this helps!

    • Oh, I forgot about Power7 in Golden, CO they are new and a decent shop as well for ski gear but they are just small and time will tell how good they are. But they have a decent selection and seem knowledgable.
