Listen to our GEAR:30 conversation with Boise Gear Collective founder, Tyson Stellrecht:
Boise Gear Collective is a locally owned, operated, and independent business that makes our Recommended Shops list for a number of reasons. They are the only outdoor gear consignment shop in the area that also has a large selection of new high-end gear. So their huge selection of used, deeply discounted skis, snowboards, and apparel make it affordable for everyone to go ski and ride, and you can sell them your old gear and turn it into cash or new gear.
Additionally, they have an approachable and knowledgeable staff full of gear nerds — the kind who (literally) asked us if they could buy all the previous editions of our buyer’s guides to help them line up their customers with the best used skis for them.
With new ski gear from Moment, Icelantic, Look, Tyrolia, Fritschi, Black Diamond, and G3, and new snowboard equipment from Weston, Head, Karakorum, and Voile, Boise Gear Exchange has an excellent selection.
In addition to all the new gear, they also have used gear from brands such as Arc’teryx, Salomon, Rossignol, and Head — just to name a few.
The full-service ski and bike shop delivers fast turnarounds on your equipment.
Ski & Gear Demos
They also offer a huge demo fleet of new skis and boards, as well as snowshoes, avy gear, xc ski rentals, and bikes. Reservations can be made online or in-store.
While Boise Gear Collective doesn’t offer e-commerce at this time, you can make reservations for their fleet of demo skis, snowboards, boots, and bikes through their website.
