Board Life is about more than just weekend adventures and après-shred beers at the lodge; it’s a dedication to mountain culture, the preservation of our forests, oceans and lakes, and the creation of authentic experiences in our everyday lives.
We give tribute to those who laid the foundation for our unique mountain lifestyle and we pay tribute to the natural environments that we live and play within - from Whitewater Resort, Baldface Lodge, Kootenay Pass, Retallack Lodge to the numerous other backcountry stashes of champagne powder hidden in our rich mountain forests.
We have been working alongside our partners to supply the Kootenays with the best in board life utensils and everyday essentials since we opened our doors over a decade ago. Our shop is hand curated with the highest quality (and raddest looking) women's clothing, men's clothing and key lifestyle accessories like shoes, sunglasses, goggles, backpacks, snowboard bags, beanies, hats and wallets.
We pride ourselves on passing along backcountry advice and education as well as long standing hardgoods knowledge and first hand experience. The gear we carry in the shop is the gear that we know and ride. We carry everything you need to shred on concrete and in the backcountry including skateboards, snowboards, split boards, skins, bindings, boots, waterproof jackets and snow pants, thermal underwear and even board wax. We continue to be one of a select few Jones Epicentres for technical support and avalanche awareness info.
Whether you are a veteran rider, or a new initiate into the board life, our incredibly friendly staff is in the shop 7 days a week to get you fitted with the right knowledge and the right gear for the season ahead. So next time you are in town, swing by the shop for high fives and good times!
