Snowflake Ski Shop/245 Board Co. is a small, family-owned shop in Lockport, NY. It was founded in 1971 by Robert Wray, which he owned before selling the shop to his son and daughter, Bob and Bonnie. In 2013, Greg Bromley bought the business; he has worked here since he was 19 - first as a salesman, then as a manager for both the Lockport and Kissing Bridge locations.
We are a small shop specializing in ski and snowboard equipment. We have everything you need to get out and enjoy the snow: outerwear from your favorite brands, goggles and helmets, gloves, hats, layering pieces, and accessories, all designed to keep you warm while enjoying the outdoors. We have a vast selection of skis and ski boots, as well as snowboards and snowboarding boots! For the non-skier/snowboarder, we have cross-country skis and snowshoes. Have boot issues? Let Greg help you with your boot-fitting needs and create custom footbeds. Are you thinking of trying skiing or snowboarding for the first time? Consider our seasonal rental packages!
Snowflake Ski Shop prides itself on a vast selection of gear, all at the lowest prices you’ll find anywhere! Let our knowledgeable staff help you get ready for winter. We especially love our families, who have supported us over the years! Visit us at our primary location in Lockport, NY, and our Kissing Bridge location in Colden. Think snow!
CUSTOM BOOT FITTING
Custom-fitting ski and snowboard boots mean getting the boot to fit like an extension of the foot. At
Snowflake Ski Shop/245 Board Co., we create a custom footbed to support the foot inside the
boot, molding the liner, and modifying the boot to accommodate the unique fitting issues of different-shaped feet.
Most skiers and snowboarders haven’t been exposed to the idea of custom fitting gear to the rider. In the simplest terms, custom fitting means making boots designed for the “average” foot and body shape that fit a specific individual’s unique feet and stance.
