Where We Buy Gear

To look great on the slopes, in the water and on land, our members shop for quality gear (skis, snowboards, mountain bikes, inline skates and more), clothing and accessories at the following specialty shops. Why? Because they know what they’re talking about when it comes to the right gear for your sport.


  • Twisted Bindings are a small accessory placed between your bindings and your snowboard that allows you to rotate your front foot up to 90 degrees forward- skateboard style- so that you can cruise the flats, skate through the lift line, board and ride the lift in comfort, and customize your stance. Use Coupon Code NCSF15 at checkout and receive the special NSCF discount of 15% off!
