The Start Haus in Truckee, CA is a real deal ski shop. A customer service oriented, tech and equipment specialist, hard goods emphasis one stop shop for pretty much all your alpine skiing needs from rec, to race, to freeride. Ski shops sometimes feel like clothing stores that also happen to sell skis. Not the Start Haus. They’re definitely a ski shop that also happens to sell some outerwear.

They’ve got probably the largest selection of skis in one location for any retail store in California and a knowledgeable staff who’s goal is to set you up with the best possible gear for you to ride the way you want to ride.

“The Start Haus dials in my gear and has the best product for the serious racer to the free ski freak.  I fit both those profiles so, I take my skis to get mounted, set up with a fast grind and get my boot work including insoles and liner work for that custom fit and performance.  I like checking in with their shop crew for the latest technical news. They know skiing. I have confidence that everything I need is set up just the way I like it.  Other cool features are the “wax reports” from Owner Jim Schaffner on www.starthaus.com to get the boards flying.  Not only are they a ski and boot shop, but they carry the best product and have the knowledge to fit each customer to their ski gear.  I drop in weekly just to say hi and slap some fives.  It’s good to know the Start Haus crew!”

Rahlves knows what he’s talking about. I’m not even going to try to list all of his skiing credentials.
