Announcing BIG changes in our tune shop!

The tuning shop at Shep’s has always delivered outstanding quality and service when it comes to prepping your gear for the best possible performance on the hill.  This year, we’re making it even better.  LOADS better!

Every winter, we strive to bring you the best performing, hottest new skis, boards, and gear on the planet, and people are hitting the slopes now more than ever.  Our tuning wizard, Pete Kohlmoos, works his magic tuning, waxing, edging and repairing.  To meet our own increasing demands while staying true to our promise of providing our customers with the best possible service and quality, we’ve purchased four new pieces of tuning equipment from Wintersteiger.

Known for their legendary quality and results, Wintersteiger produces industry leading tuning equipment that can be found worldwide tuning skis for the highest caliber of skiers.  Shep’s expects nothing less for our customers. We want our racers on the best gear available, tuned to the highest standards.  We want the fastest possible turnaround time to get skiers of all levels back on the slopes, and we strive to deliver cutting edge services that simply can’t be found anywhere else in our area.  To do this, here’s what we updated:

Micro 71 Stone Grinder: An update to our existing machine, the Micro 71 is capable of tuning skis and snowboards of all widths with exceptional results. Need the bases on those powder skis fixed up? No problem! Board a bit rough after hours in the park? We’ll get it looking great!

 

Trim 71 Ceramic Disc Edger: With a specific machine for sharpening base and side edges of skis and boards, Shep’s is now able to bring you laser accurate performance.

Waxjet 93: Designed to deliver hot wax to skis and snowboards in a faster and more efficient manner, the Waxjet 93 provides a deeper penetrating wax to your equipment while using less materials.  This translates to a better performing product while leaving a smaller footprint on the environment.  It will also significantly speed up our tuning time, getting your equipment done and back to you in record time!

 

 

756bd8ead4c1aacd9294b6321e84f0e8Drivetronic: By far, this is the machine we are the most thrilled to introduce to our customers!  The Drivetronic is an alpine ski binding tester designed to do one thing: ensure each and every binding that leaves our shop is performing properly and in the safest manner possible.  We want you to be safe and have equipment that is performing at its best.  The Drivetronic, combined with our highly-trained ski technician, will allow us to do just that.

Wausau’s Ski Shop

A trip to the mountains is every skiers dream.  Snow, Terrain, Dining, Nightlife, Shopping… Of course that includes snowboarders, ski racers, cross country ski lovers, freestylers and carvers of all kinds.  Sadly, for some of us the mountains are too far.  The good news is, if you live in the midwest and are planning a trip to the region’s #1 ski area, Granite Peak Ski Area in Wisconsin, you can enjoy the full mountain-town experience with a trip to downtown Wausau and Shepherd & Schaller.

Granite Peak Ski Area, Rib Mountain State Park, Wausau, Wisconsin

Wausau’s Ski Shop since 1949, Shep’s is known and respected by snow sports enthusiasts from throughout the midwest.  A product selection that rivals resort shops in Colorado, Utah and Vermont, a Rental shop that features new gear every season, and a back-room maintenance shop that is staffed by full-time, year-round professionals who are respected by both customers and ski gear manufacturers make Shepherd & Schaller a destination for elite athletes and newbies alike.  It’s 15,000 sq. ft. of ski lover’s shopping heaven.  It’s the place where locals find unique gifts and surprises, love to hang out, share stories, meet ski friends.  You’ll feel welcome and at home, even more than you might at elite mountain shops at much higher altitudes.

www.shepssports.com Shop live inventory, make Rental Reservations, check Repair prices.

Can’t get to town?  Shepherd & Schaller launched it’s web store in 2011, with live inventory that allows you to see the exact same product that is on the sales floor.  Obviously a great way to shop from home, many use the site to revisit items seen in the store, while making gift wish lists for birthdays or Santa.

Done skiing and shopping?  Walk a few feet and visit Malarky’s Pub for food, refreshment and live music most nights. You’ll also like City Grill, Red Eye Brewing Company, Jalapeno’s Mexican Restaurant & Bar and Back When Cafe, as well as organic groceries, cozy coffee shops along with more great specialty shopping including our favorite, Evolutions in Design, just steps from the store.

 

We’d Like to Thank The Academy….

A big Thank You to the readers of the Wausau Daily Herald who voted us Wausau’s favorite Outdoor Shop.

We’ve worked hard to earn your trust since 1949, and we remain committed to making our founders proud of our community involvement, customer service, product selection, and shopping environment in downtown Wausau, Wisconsin and online.

Some call us a “Ski Shop”, others a “Bike Shop”, and there are a few who still say “Sporting Goods.”  We’re all that and a whole lot more. And it’s a blast changing our product mix to suit our region’s ever changing tastes along with the demand for our expert product selection and service online.  So stay tuned!

“We would like to thank our mothers, our fathers, the big guy upstairs and all of those who didn’t believe that a little shop in northern Wisconsin could hold it’s own next to the big shops in the big cities for so long.  It made us try harder to believe in ourselves.  We’re going to Disney World!” – The Sheps Crew
