Alpine ski racing is where it’s at. Get the gear and join the fun.
Just a ten minute drive from Granite Peak Ski Area at Rib Mountain, our team of expert ski boot fitters and race aficionados are your partners when hundies matter.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Shep’s Sports has been Wisconsin skiers’ first choice for race gear since 1949. That’s 73 years of experience to guide you. Owing to our home in Wausau, a mecca for outdoor adventure sports, we’re counted on for answers to questions including the who, what, when and where of skiing. As for the why? That’s easy: alpine racing is a blast!
Shoppers explore our 10,000 sq. feet of premium gear for skiing, cycling, camping, hiking and paddling. Plus the clothes you need to succeed. And we guide them. Friendly, expert advice is our promise.
Of course we stock alpine race gear from your favorite brands, then prep and service it with race tunes, waxes and hot box treatment. In addition to race season, our full Wintersteiger tune shop is at your service year-round.
In addition to gear, alpine ski racers trust Shepherd & Schaller Sports to keep them in the know regarding FIS regulations. Just ask for our Race manager when you visit.
