The minute you walk through the door at Hamilton Sports you know you are in a real ski shop.

Not a store that has some ski gear, but an authentic ski shop – a place where quality rules and everyone is passionate about skiing, quick to answer a question or just happy to talk about time on the hill that day.

Located just across from the Aspen Mountain Gondola Plaza, Hamilton Sports is a great place to stop in for ski clothing, skis, helmets, gloves, accessories, ski rentals or to drop off your skis for the best ski tune in Aspen.

The making of a great ski shop

In 1997, speed skier & member of the 200kmh club (top speed 130mph), Bill Miller and world record speed skier, Olympic bronze medalist & first person to ski 150mph, Jeff Hamilton, founded Hamilton Sports in Aspen.

Since that time, Hamilton Sports has built a strong reputation of quality and service based on owner Bill Miller’s continual determination to “offer the finest ski wear and equipment in the entire ski world.”

Our favorite ski shop

We happened into Hamilton Sports about a decade ago on our first visit to Aspen and purchased some skis on that visit.

Since that time, we’ve purchased countless other ski items, clothing & accessories – and we wouldn’t have our skis tuned anywhere else.

There’s really not much of a better way to start the day than to get up, grab a bus, walk half a block to Hamilton Sports, pick up perfectly freshly tuned skis, and then head across the street to some of the world’s best skiing on Aspen Mountain.

Over the decade, we’ve grown to consider Hamilton Sports as our local ski shop – even when we lived in Texas.  Why?

  • Awesome KJUS selection.  We’ve been a fan of KJUS ski wear since it’s launch by Norwegian ski racer and Olympic champion, Lasse Kjus. Hamilton Sports has the best selection of KJUS in Aspen (or anywhere else). While many stores will carry a couple of styles for the guys, Hamilton Sports has it all – for both men AND women. And, if you’re not in Aspen, they’ll ship it to you.
  • Great ski selection and experts to help you choose the right ones.  The Hamilton Sports team will take the time to make sure you get the ski that is right for the way you ski.  Hamilton carries the top skis available, featuring Blizzard and Kastle. With regard to Kastle – Hamilton Sports was the very first ski shop in the United States to offer the redesigned Kastle ski line.
  • Want to rent the best? Renting is a great way to try out new skis.  At Hamilton Sports, 100% of the demo line rentals are brand new ski equipment from the lines they carry – and if you read the bullet above this one, you know what that means. Sweeeeet.
  • Best ski tune in Aspen. Voted best ski tuning shop in Aspen by readers of Aspen Times, Hamilton is recognized by Aspen locals as the place to get your skis tuned.

We like Hamilton Sports
