We feel that business should help protect and cherish our environment. We believe strongly in doing no harm. In choosing the suppliers we work with, in choosing the brands that we carry, in choosing the power we use for our store. We use 100% renewable energy power for our location.


This choice also extends to the fact that we value human effort to earn the turns by skiing uphill on your own effort, which is why we love back country skiing and trail running. We pick up trash along our runs to leave the world better than we found it. We want our legacy to be for people to live healthier lives by being fitter, having more care for our planet and a deeper respect for the mountains and wilderness that we all enjoy.


We are excited to be partnered with 1% for the Planet. If you aren't familiar with it please check it out www.onepercentfortheplanet.org. We have already contributed $650 towards their charity so far and as we start our first year of business we are excited to donating our 1% to CPAWS (Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society) so that we can all continue to enjoy our parks, natural lands and glaciers for generations to come. It is our part, our brick if you will in the world to try and be more responsible as a company.

We are skiuphill and this is what we believe.
