Outdoor Gear Exchange

37 Church St., Burlington, gearx.com

If what you need involves outdoorsy sports, Outdoor Gear Exchange has got it. For two decades, OGE has been the go-to shop for in-the-know local kayakers, hikers, skiers, climbers and camping enthusiasts. Its friendly and knowledgeable staff will help you navigate the huge inventory — check the downstairs consignment area for the real scores. Oh, and you can bring your dog, too.

Alpine Shop

1184 Williston Rd., South Burlington, alpineshopvt.com

"Ski today, work tomorrow" is the motto of this locally owned outfitter, housed in a roadside ski chalet and in business for more than half a century. It has everything you need for your alpine adventures — including stylin' après-ski apparel.

Burton

80 Industrial Pkwy. and 162 College St., Burlington, burton.com
Corey Grenier - MATTHEW THORSEN

Respect your elders, especially if they invented your sport. Jake Burton's flagship store is the first stop on any boarder's quest for pow — not to mention any quest for steez. Burton is a trendsetter in both gear and style.

Old Spokes Home

322 N. Winooski Ave., Burlington, oldspokeshome.com

The self-described "most unusual bike shop on the planet" is the best place in Burlington to find a vintage ride. Its staff tunes anything with two wheels. They sell new stuff, too.

Ridin' High

2 Pearl St., Burlington, rdnhgh.com

Before you shred the skate park or barrel down Pearl Street on your longboard, visit this funky shop for the latest in skateboards, longboards and, most importantly, protective gear.

Skirack

85 Main St., Burlington, skirack.com

SnowSports Industries America has called this the No. 1 ski shop in New England. Skirack is also a sizable bike shop with tons of two-wheelers, from BMX to downhill.

WND&WVS

688 Pine St., Burlington, wndnwvs.com

Yes, Burlington has a surf shop. The city's only exclusive water-sports retailer offers access to the wind and waves. Gear up here for windsurfing, standup paddleboarding and kiteboarding.
