New ski/ride shop

Anyone know who's behind Blindside, a ski/board/skate shop opening at the Angler's Covey building on the Westside - Highway 24 at 21st Street?? Says it's opening soon. Didn't catch the phone # as I drove by, but will have to check it out. No one was around early this a.m.

Colorado Kite and Ski moved to Colorado Avenue, just a bit west of 21st (2820 W. Colorado). That strip mall they were in off Highway 24 seemed like a place with good visibility, but I doubt people liked having to snake their way over there. The new place looks cool. Larger, too. They're already in and ready to tune-up your gear. If you're a Westsider, what are you waiting for?

Hey Dave and everybody! My name is Jon Easdon and I am opening up Blindside. A full service ski/ snowboard shop next to Anglers Covey. Many of you might know me, as I have spent the past 4 years running Colorado Kite and Ski. That store was sold, and I went to do my own thing. I have an extensive background in the ski industry with over 14 years combined retail, snowboard manufacturing experience. This is a true rider owned shop, with the best tunes, and prices in town. Thanks for the blog, and I look forward to meeting everyone that comes in. 719-636-1554

I've been here and will go back for anything I need for boarding. I got my board tuned and it was only 15 bucks. Also bought my helmet there, as the selection for everything was great.

Good to hear. I was thinking when I passed by on the way to work that I need to pop in and look around. I have a hand-me-down board that needs a once-over, and I may be ready to buy mid-season or at the end of this season. It's great to buy local!
