Skirack first opened its doors in 1969 just a few blocks from its present location at the corner of Main and Pine streets in downtown Burlington, Vermont. Over the years, we have undergone many changes and all with one goal in mind - to provide the finest outdoor goods and services.
For a few years, we operated two stores on lower Main street. Skirack was our home for all things self propelled - bikes, cross country skis, snowshoes, inline skates, running shoes, kayaks, and the clothing and accessories for it all. The Downhill Edge housed our gravity division - downhill skis and snowboards. Now its all under one roof.
In May 2011, we once again began operating two stores in downtown Burlington, when we began a special partnership with one our favorite outdoor clothing and gear companies, Patagonia, and opened Patagonia Burlington.
In October of 2017, we opened Vermont Trailwear in Waterbury Center; specializing in Darn Tough Socks, Patagonia, Skida, Ski The East, and more! Their goal to engage with our community and our close partnerships with our vendors is what sets them apart.
We have the pleasure of doing business in what many have termed "one of the most livable cities in America." A short walk from our front door is Lake Champlain with the Adirondack mountains of New York as a backdrop.
