Why Venture Sports?

Locally Owned & Operated

Venture Sports is locally owned and operated and has been since 1991. We are not merely a link in a huge corporate chain. We do not answer to a bottom line of stock holders – instead, our customers’ total satisfaction is our bottom line. We believe that if we put people, first then the money will work itself out. And indeed that philosophy has proven successful for nearly a quarter century. We aren’t the biggest shop and we aren’t the oldest. And Venture Sports doesn’t want to be either of these, we just want to be the best.

Passion & Dedication: We Just Want To Be The Best

There are literately dozens of ski and bike shops in the Vail Valley to choose from.  So what sets Venture Sports apart from all the rest?  In one word, it is our people.  Yes, we have all the best brand new gear from names like Rossi, Volkl, K2, Salomon, Blizzard, Head, Dynastar, Never Summer, Smith, POC, Giant, Yeti, Pinarello, and more.  OK, we are the only shop that has a 100% money back guarantee on everything that we do.
Sure, we’re also the only shop that spent a half million bucks on our state of the art ski tuning facility; and we are the only spot to be voted “Best of Vail Valley” for ski and bike tunes for over a decade (more than all other shops combined).  And yes, it’s true that we were the first company (by over 10 years) to offer ski and bike rental pickup and delivery.  Oh yeah, and we are open 365 days a year with the most convenient locations in the Valley.  But while nobody else can claim all of these accolades, none of them is the true Venture Sports difference. Our people – and their passion for making your ski or bike dreams come true – are what truly sets Venture Sports apart.
