A number of reviewers and friends of ours have been going to Bentgate for years, so this is a shop we know well and can highly recommend.

For over twenty years, Bentgate has been the core climbing and ski shop for Denver and the Golden area, and their passion and commitment to these sports is real. Bentgate’s staff is knowledgeable, they use the gear they sell, and they strive to offer outstanding customer service.

Everybody these days likes to talk about “Community,” but Bentgate is and always has been a community-oriented shop. So if you need climbing beta, info on conditions for ski touring, or you’re looking for a guide, stop into the shop or give them a call — Bentgate’s staff are all avid climbers and skiers who will be happy to help you out.

  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.
