Good place to shop for gear in Denver?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I'm arriving in Denver tomorrow afternoon for a week in Summit Co. and would like to stop and do a little gear shopping in Denver before I head to the mountains.  Mainly looking for a new helmet, but might pick up a few other things (gloves, goggles Gopro accessories, etc.)  Any suggestions as to where I should stop for good selection (and of course great prices)?  I'm guessing that REI would be the obvious choice, but just wondering if there are any other good stores I should consider?

If your driving up during the day stop at Loveland Ski area and hit the sport shop.  Great service, great selection and they'll  pretty much match any price

The REI downtown Denver has the best selection of the many REI stores.  Christy Sports has a good size store in Lakewood/Denver West just before you head up into the mountains.  There is a Sierra Trading Post on the south side of Denver, but I haven't been there yet.

 

That said, I just shop online :-)

I'd probably go to Colorado Ski and Golf at 2650 S Havana St, Aurora, just west of I-225 on Iliff.

Thanks!  I just looked on their website and unfortunately they close thirty minutes after my plane lands, so I won't be able to make it there tomorrow.  But I plan on taking a "Master the Mountain" lesson there on Monday, so I'll definitely check out their shop.

Oh yeah, http://www.powder7.com/ is mostly an online shop, but you can stop by and try things on and pick them up at their Golden location:

Yeah I'm a big online shopper too!  :-)  But I don't have the time in this case, plus I'd really rather try on a few helmets to make sure I like the fit.  So thanks for the recommendations and I'll probably stop at the REI and if I don't find exactly what I'm looking for there I'll stop at the Christy store as well.

My Brother's Bar around the corner from REI has great burgers, including buffalo.  Or on the other end of the food spectrum, Sushi Sasa up the street is one of the better Denver Sushi Restaurants.

Hadn't heard of them, but they sound like a good choice as well.

Your best bet is Colorado Ski & Golf on South Havana.  Biggest selection of the type of stuff you're looking for.  Not far out of the way when you're heading out on I-70 -- just head south on I-225 about 4-5 miles.  Big store and they are owned by Vail Associates so returns, warranty, etc. can I think be covered by any VA store, i.e., Vail, Breck, etc.
