LOCAL SPOT: Darkside Snowboards

Darkside opened their first shop in 1990 and has been an award-winning shop ever since.  With 3 locations, Okemo, Killington and Stowe, Darkside has Vermont’s back when it comes to snowboarding.  They’ve got killer service and carry some great core brands such as Lib Tech, Nomis, Rome and Bond Outerwear to name a few.  If you’re not convinced on a board to purchase, check out Darkside’s selection of demo and rental boards.  A rental setup will cost you $30.00 a day while a higher end performance setup will run you $45 for the day.  That’s a lot better then buying a board you’re unhappy with.  They’ve also got a wide range of tuning and repair options, so if you’re in need of some p-tex for that core shot, hit up Darkside.

Darkside is rider owned and operated and are dedicated guys when it comes to riding.  They really know their shit about the gear, weather and conditions at the hill, so listen to them when they’ve got a suggestion for ya.  If you can’t make it to any of the shops, check them out online: http://www.darksidesnowboards.com.  Remember to always support your local shops!!
