Our success is due to our great customer service and the fact that we are passionate skiers and riders ourselves.
Rich and Nancy – Owners.
Rich and Nancy started Village Ski in 1988. Rich’s background in ski racing and NCAA Division I coaching brings the necessary technological expertise needed to run a successful ski/snowboard shop. Professionally tuning skis for over 30 years, Rich oversees all tuning operations and is the primary reason our tunes attract skiers in need of service from all over the country. Nancy’s education in business has been paramount in keeping the “numbers” in order, while her long-time experience in apparel buying keeps our outerwear selection top-notch. In the off-season, you can catch Nancy on the Cape and Rich on the tarmac, piloting private jets.
