Travel: Not sure what to do here? We can help! Call 1 (970) 626-3608 or stop by the store.

Just call or E-Mail me prior to your trip and tell me your predilection, ability, and condition. I can customize an itinerary for you – complete with maps, gear requirements, weather forecast,and time frame required, prior to your arrival here. You can use these ideas to customize your activities and determine what equipment to bring from the comfort of your home, or rent on site. This allows you to fit activities to conditions and your desires, while allowing for the vagaries of weather. I can also provide instruction or arrange for guided excursions, as you wish.This can be done  anywhere in the Four Corners Region – from a visit to the VLA and/or The EL Malpais Lava Flows in New Mexico to The Grand Canyon or The Paria Plateau and The WAVE in Arizona, to Lake Powell and the surrounding canyon country, like the enormous cliffs and canyons of the Escalante Desert. Or rafting in SE Utah’s canyons like the mellow and stunning San Juan River or the excitement of Cataract Canyon. Or the seldom visited ruins, petroglyphs, fossils, and rafting in Desolation Widerness and the Tavaputs Plateau. Let alone rock hounding The San Rafael Reef and Swells’ deep mini slot canyons. Peak bagging or mountaineering out our back door with more 13,000′ peaks than anywhere in the U.S. and over fourteen 14teeners within a days striking distance. Plus laid back boating or Stand up Paddle Boarding on many nearby lakes and reservoirs and rivers in spring summer and fall. Fly Fishing? World Class. Ice Climbing? Ditto. Back Country skiing? Best in The West. Let alone Skate skiing, Cross country, and snow shoe excursions for all abilities.
Not to mention year round hiking and backpacking trips that can include mushroom hunting, fall color photography, Big Horn, Deer & Elk, Bear, Mountain Lion, Wolverine, Bobcat, Eagle, Snow Geese, Great Blue Heron rookeries, to name a few.

Maintenance & Repair

We are a fully certified {Barnett’s/Sutherland’s} Bike repair shop. From the latest outboard bearing bottom brackets, hydraulic brake bleeds, to antique skip link chains and coaster brakes, forks, shifters, or R+R, we can improve the performance of any ride. Any part is 1 to 3 days away, at most, if not in stock. Ski tunes and binding mounts.With 40 years of experience hand tuning race ready skis, tunes start @ $25.00. While I can turn out skis in two hours or so due to cooling required, do not expect instant gratification – automated grinders will give you that – I give you a customized tune for conditions, temperature, and ability. Accurate and precise edges and textured bases for fast glide with flouronated multi-layer temperature sensitive waxes. Or forgiving de-tuned tips and tails with universal wax for less demanding players. Or multiple layer texture and wax for skating performance. I even still tar and restore old wooden favorites.Binding Mounts: 40 years of Marker, Salomon, Dynafit, Look, Rossignol, Fritschi, Spademan, Burt, Tyrolia, Rottefella, Voile, Atomic, Geze, and Cubco if your that old, but I don’t do those anymore.
