Serious Skiers Shop and Learn From the Vertical Drop Ski Shop in Clarkston


Clarkston, MI — January 9, 2021

It’s ski season in Michigan. For the next few months, area skiers head for the local slopes and enjoy gliding down the powdery snow on longboards strapped to their boots. From novice to expert, skiing is one of those sports that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. Like most sports, the proper equipment and technique can help you enjoy and excel while participating.

Ski Simulator

It is difficult to simulate the experience of racing down a hillside on a pair of skis. The SkyTechSport ski simulator is the same type of equipment the U.S. Ski Team trains on. “Olympic team coaches say this is the closest you can come to skiing without being on snow.” What’s it like, take a look.

Training Equipment

The professionals at Verticle Drop can work with you to improve your technique or train ski racing athletes to be the ultimate competitor.

You Have to Look Good on the Slopes

While looking good on the slopes won’t necessarily make you ski better, having the right equipment that fits properly will. Not only can Vertical Drop outfit you in the latest styles they offer “3D Foot Mapping and Vacuum Boot Fitting for the perfect fit.”

A Family Legacy

In 1953, a young Don Thomas met Olympian, Stein Eriksen. Don lured Stein to the United States where he became Boyne Mountain’s ski school director and recreational skiing as we know it today was born! Don went on to pioneer and champion many of the ski industry technologies and retail practices we have today.

A member of the Michigan Ski Hall of Fame, Don established an unmatched legacy of commitment to innovation and dedication to the skiing community. Serving Michigan’s ski community for over 40 years – 50 if you count the years his dad let him work in the store after school, Don’s son, Bob Thomas, continues the commitment to excellence. In short, there’s a reason why the best ski racing gear, most innovative programs and tools, such as the Midwest’s only ski simulator and foot mapping system for the perfect boot fit, are found at Vertical Drop Ski Shop.

Bob has more hands-on, day-to-day experience in the ski industry than anyone else on the planet. His dad saw to that.
