City Garage Full Tilt Boots

Tell us a little bit about yourself and The City Garage:

I started in 2001, fresh out of high school. Wax tech in training was my position. Fast forward to 2019 and people think I am the owner! Well, I kind of am, but I don’t pay the bills…yet! City Garage opened in 1999 was founded by Sean Lowes. People thought he was crazy. This is now our 20th year of selling skis. We’ve been keeping kids off of snowboards since 99 :).

What is the ski scene like around New York?

We are in the heart of ski country, New York style. Lake effect storms can bring in feet of snow. We are an eclectic group of skiers, a melting pot of sorts. We ski it all. Tele, moguls, trees, hard carving groomers, and whatever else the conditions bring about!  When it snows we’ll see ya in the trees! Talking big!

How long have you been carrying Full Tilt?

Since the start! And we carried Raichle’s before that.

Which boot have you been most psyched about carrying? Which boots do well?

The Dropkick has been crushing it for years. We love how customizable it is and how easy it easy for any young skier to become accustomed to. It will flex and fit the right way for any customer over the right amount of time.

What is the most rewarding part about owning/ working at City Garage?

It all comes down to making people smile and getting them excited to ski. Building relationships that turn into friendships. Oh, and the deals are gear definitely don’t suck either.

What is one thing that makes City Garage a unique shop?

One word. VIBE. We are a collective of misfits that love our shop. People come in from all over the world, and we want them to remember their experience at City Garage.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and Baker Street Snow:

I have been in the industry for 17 years now. I Started out scraping skis and cleaning machines at Peter Glenn in Orange County. They went out of business after my first season and Stefan Kaelin Ski & Golf came in. They gave me the opportunity to start mounting skis and eventually, I became the shop manager. Six years later the economy took a crap and at the same time internet sales were taking a toll on ski shops, so they shut down too.

Phil over at Phil’s Ski and Snowboard (Costa Mesa) recruited me after that. After managing Phil’s for 5 years I started selling hard goods out of his rental and tune shop as well as managing his store. I started out super small and within 5 years Baker Street had grown to carrying over 20 of the best brands.

We have the best selection in Orange County as well as selling across the country on our website. We owe all our success to these shops, awesome reps, and our epic customers and supporters!

What is the ski scene like around Southern California?

The ski scene is very alive and well! We have lots of resorts close by! We get every kind of skier here. That is why we love Full Tilt! We sell Full Tilt to the park rats that will only get the Classic and Dropkick, the mom or dad that want something comfortable to perform, and the  80-year olds that are blown away that you don’t have to struggle your ass off to get your boots on.

How long have you been carrying Full Tilt?

5 years now! Since the start!!

Which boot have you been most psyched about carrying? Which boots do well?

We absolutely kill it with the Descendant line! Especially the Descendant 6 and 8! We get a lot of wide footed people wearing flip-flops half of the year and these just amaze them! First Chair 6, 8 and 10 do great as well. The lady’s love the ease of entry, comfort and performance also!

What is the most rewarding part about owning/ working at Baker Street Snow?

The main thing would have to be doing what we love! We work our asses off for 9 month’s but at least it’s alongside the other best Ski Shop in town ( Phil’s Ski and Board.) My best friend who passed away, his little brother that I’ve known since he was 5, is my manager. All my employees are friends, and my wife does the books! It’s one big dysfunctional family haha! I love the ski industry and so grateful to be a part of it!

What is one thing that makes Baker Street Snow a unique shop?

We’re a small shop STACKED to the ceiling with so much gear it will blow your mind!! We only do Ski and Board. We don’t sell snorkels or rollerblades. We live winter!

We’re just getting started! #BAKERSTREETFORLIFE
