Buzz's World Famous Tunes

Voted Vail's Best Snowboard Shop

Buzz's Boards started selling snowboards in a time when you couldn't ride them on the nearby slopes of Vail Mountain, demonstrating the shop's ear-to-the-street philosophy, which persists to this day.     READ MORE


★★★★★ - "This is the only shop in vail to get your rentals and your equipment serviced. Their prices are the best. The skis and boards are great, always in excellent condition. Buzz wants your experience to be memorable. His technicians do great work and are concerned about delivering quality work. The whole shop is welcoming and committed to great service"

Jay Kimball

★★★★★ - "This is the place you want to go for your next board. Don't get fooled by some brand store. Buzz's has the best gear, best prices and superior product knowledge. Awesome selection of accessories too."

Carlos Barrios

★★★★★ - "Whenever I am in Vail, my first stop is the Westside Cafe for breakfast. My second stop is Buzz's Boards for the best tune anywhere and a great mountain report, world cup update, and lively conversation with Buzz and his boys. They treat you like family--or better. If you were family, you'd be working behind the counter!"

Carrie Stiegler

★★★★★ - "Super chill, super helpful staff. Awesome selection and just general great service. The called me the second that the board I wanted got stocked and I had it waxed and ready on arrival later that day.

William Battershill

★★★★★ - "The best. I've been skiing at vail for about 20 years, but I didn't learn about Buzz's until I ripped out an edge on one of my skis a couple months ago. Right after it happened I rode up the lift with a ski instructor who has taught in vail since the 80s. I asked him where I should go to get it repaired. He said "if anyone can fix that, it's Buzz's." 

That's exactly what they did. 

They're next to one of the largest and most expensive resorts in the world but you feel like you're at the ski shop adjacent to your local ski hill. They have reasonable prices, knowledgable staff, and best of all, everyone who works here is super nice. I found my ski shop."

Christopher R.

★★★★★ - "If I could give Buzz's 10 stars I would.  His staff is knowledgeable, they care about you, they are a local shop for locals, by locals. If you are an out of towner well, youve made a new lifelong friend. I've known Buzz for years. He was my first ski coach, such a great guy.... Great equipment at great prices. Oh, and if you need a world class tune this is the place."
