You know how the cable company bundles their products?  Shepherd & Schaller does it too.  The difference is, our packages are easy to understand and save you real money!   Just buy at least two pieces of ski or snowboard equipment (Board + Binding, Ski + Pole, Ski + Boots, etc.) and get our lowest price on each.  Easy.

Of course we offer Shep’s sale price on individual items too, so you’ll save when you shop with us even if you only need one new piece of equipment this year. Pre-shop our ski gear at shepssports.com, but get the lowest bundled-package price in our downtown Wausau, WI store.
