This is by far the most strategically located Ski shop in Killington by a long stretch-unless you want to pay double at Snowshed- which takes us to the incredibly reasonable prices they have. I paid around $30 for a great board for the Entire day including boots. The owner, Dave, was kind enough to throw in an extra for me which I appreciated! After a bit of research, I came to find that Dave is one of the premiere Ski tuners in the country having served Skis and boards of world class champions. As for my personal experience today, it was loads of fun! And I must say the board was and boots couldn’t be more top notch. Thanks Robin for setting me up with the board and boots to match my Quicksilver jacket, which I purchased from Black Dog as well🏂 Your search for a Ski Shop in Killington stood right here guys!!

Incredible service and expertise for anything skiing/snowboarding related. I stopped in with my snowboard looking for new bindings and enjoyed a great experience! The staff quickly helped me choose the right style and waxed/tuned my board all within 20 minutes. Black Dog Sports is a must visit when in the Killington ski area.

We had planned to grab our gear later Friday night so we could head straight to the mountain Saturday morning. Someone in my group had called and asked if we could come later in the the night, and whoever they spoke with said "sure, no problem. There will be no issues." Well, this was completely WRONG. We were told to wait for ONE HOUR without even being spoken to. The workers told us that we would be taken care of, but nope. We were then told that we had to go home because the workers had to go to sleep. IS THAT A JOKE?! Completely disappointed. If I could give this shop zero stars, I would. I DO NOT recommend this place. Horrible customer service, nasty workers, and 100% not worth your time or money in that small shop.

Never ever go to this store- the ultimate disappointment. We were planning on arriving in Killington late Friday night so we called the store a few days in advance and they told us that as long as we are at the store by 10:30PM we would be good to go. We arrived at 9:30PM and asked the sales attendant if they would be able to help us that night and they assured us we would. We waited on line for about 45-55 minutes and were constantly told that we would be helped. After waiting around for almost an hour we were kicked out of the store. The workers were the rudest, most unprofessional people I've ever come across and they had no remorse that we wasted our entire night trying to get assistance, and no remorse that they lied to us about half a dozen times when constantly promising help. We never received an apology and no effort to make amends was ever given. I am horrified that a sales establishment like this is in business and I plan on reporting them to the BBB for a thorough review and audit.

Fast service - we were out in 20 minutes fully equipped, reasonable price especially when you combine days, close to the slopes - if any problem can help or replace right on the spot.

Best prices on ski gear you'll find in the area - from rentals to things like youth helmets, ski harness, etc. The staff was super helpful setting the little ones up with rentals, tuning the adult's boards overnight so they were ready to go before the slopes opened, etc. Also, it's a very short drive from the condos near Ramshead/Snowshed (Fall Line, Trail Creek, etc.) Thanks guys and gals at Black Dog!

You are so welcome! We're particularly big fans of getting "the little ones" into the right rental gear and junior helmets- safe and fun. Glad your boards were tuned and ready to go - swing in the next time you need rentals, service or gear! We really appreciate your business.

Was at Killington for a weekend of skiing but had a problem with my new Lange boots.
Went to Black Dog to see what they could do. Dave and his crew were awesome and attentive. My boots were fixed in 20min plus got my skis tuned up to perfection.
The best store no doubt..

We visited Killington, VT ski area one day and rented the performance ski package at the Base lodge. The boots and skis were subpar for the premium paid. Day 2 we went to Black Dog to rent demos and it made the entire experience absolutely wonderful. Dave Manning, the owner and his staff were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Dave picked out the skis for us. I got to use a pair of brand new Solomon boots to let them know how they worked. I highly recommend anyone skiing in Killington or nearby to go to Black Dog sports and rent the demo package. Oh, and their package was $10/person cheaper than the lodge rates. Thanks Dave!
