THE PINNACLE STORY
A LOCAL LEGEND:
The Pinnacle Ski & Sports Story
The original Bedside Tuners was founded in 1984, and for the past 35 years, our commitment to service has never wavered. Moving through the decades, the business evolved into what is currently Pinnacle Ski and Sports, encompassing Inner Bootworks and SkiEssentials.com. From demos and rentals to retail and online, our product and service offerings, as well as our enthusiasm of the outdoor community, continues to improve.
Now in our new location on Mountain Road, we’ve got a brand-new Wintersteiger ski tuning machine and a full-service bike shop to help us get to the next level. We carry the latest brands of clothing and the newest hard good technology in the sport of skiing. We’re more than happy to help you find that perfect helmet and goggle combination to go along with your outfit, and our rental and demo staff are here to get you out on the hill quickly and easily. Pinnacle Ski and Sports is truly your one-stop shop for all your outdoor needs.
Our staff prides itself on its knowledge and service, striving to make your shopping experience both efficient and cost-effective. Whether you’re looking for a whole new setup or a great deal on last year’s demo skis, we here at Pinnacle Ski and Sports are ready to listen to you and get you set up on the right gear.

Custom Ski Boot Fitting
Most skiers would say that the boots are the most important piece of ski gear, and our professionals at Inner Bootworks would certainly agree. It all starts with the feet, as they’re the first body part to touch your gear. Our boot fitters specialize in both new boot fittings as well as customization and repairs of your current boots. Whether you’re looking for a shiny new pair or want to get another season out of your all-time favorite, our staff at Inner Bootworks is ready to assist you. After all, it matters who buckles your boots.
From shell modifications and boot heaters from Hotronics to custom footbeds and moldable liners, our specialists take pride in getting the most out of your boots whether you’ve purchased them from us or not. In addition to sales and service, Inner Bootworks does stance alignment, canting, and foot analysis in order to optimize your performance and comfort on the hill. Our fitters take the same amount of time with a high-end racer as we do with a first-time boot buyer. We offer top of the line models from major boot manufacturers such as Lange, Salomon, Nordica, and Tecnica. Among these companies, you’re sure to find something that fits your foot and ski style.
The Online Home of Pinnacle
Here at SkiEssentials.com, we like to think of ourselves as your local shop online. Our motto is “Gear for Skiers by Skiers” and we live right up to it. We’re only a phone call or a few clicks away, so for any questions or to place an order, drop us a line and talk to a skier.
We started about ten years ago in the office of Pinnacle Ski and Sports, just getting rid of some older gear on ebay and we haven’t looked back since. We’ve grown not only regarding products and services, but also in our online content and editorial department.
SkiEssentials.com runs an annual ski test that we publish on our site, offering unique and unbiased reviews and information on this year’s skis. In addition, we create in-depth reviews of popular models and products, all with the intention of helping you get in the right gear for you.
In addition to low prices on current ski gear, we’re also big into closeout items, and this gives us the ability to sell previous season’s equipment for heavily discounted prices. We pride ourselves on finding quality inventory at low prices, allowing budget-oriented shoppers to get out and ski. Additionally, SkiEssentials.com offers services such as Phantom Permanent base glide treatment, free ski mounting, and free shipping on orders over $49.
If you can’t make it into the shop in Stowe, make sure to check us out online at SkiEssentials.com.
STOWE SNOW REPORT
Daily Weather Reports from Skiers
Over the past two seasons, we’ve developed a daily snow and terrain conditions report available on the Instagram account @stowesnowreport. Last year, we had a report from every operational day here at Stowe Mountain Resort, as well as Nordic and Winter Bike trail reports when available. Rain, snow, or cold, we’re out there on the hill giving you an accurate (for better or worse) report on what’s good (or not) on the hill. We’ve developed a nice following, and we invite you to join us this winter out on the hill!
