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.

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.
