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
Vail's 1st Snowboard Shop
Buzz's was the first shop in Vail to offer snowboards for rental and for sale. Before snowboarding was legal in Vail we used to send the riders to Meadow Mountain or to Vail Pass to try this new sport. Since we have been involved in Snowboarding from the beginning we have stayed on top of the innovations in our sport. That's why Buzz's only carries the brands that are well proven and functional. Our staff experts are knowledgable, friendly and can help you with rentals and repair. Buzz and his staff are dedicated to making your snowboard experience the best you've ever had. We are open 7 days a week to help you with the latest and greatest in snowboard gear.

★★★★★ - "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!"
★★★★★ - "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.
★★★★★ - "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."
★★★★★ - "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."
