Now Offering Appointments for In-Store Shopping

Covid Safety Measures are in Place for In-Store Shopping

We continue to limit the number of customers in-store at any one time for the safety of customers and staff. As the winter approaches and temperatures drop, we strongly recommend that customer with equipment needs schedule a pre-arranged time to visit us, with the goal to limit queuing or gathering in the storefront.  Our appointment scheduling system is now live!

Nov 5 update: We have temporarily paused any new appointments beyond November.  We will announce here and on Facebook/Instagram (@freshairexp) when our December resupply of touring equipment allows us to re-open scheduling.  This decision is made given that supply chain delays during Covid, we cannot guarantee the arrival dates for our resupplies.

Great selection on hand remain for skate ski equipment and race equipment.  Great selection of touring gear for people 190+ pounds / 12+ boot size on hand.



Clothing and accessory sales and service continue to operate one-in / one-out at this time.  Our selection of product remains strong for this category.  No appointment necessary.
