The 1960's and 70's in Squaw Valley were colorful times in the world of ski racing. Dan Mooney, better known as Moondog tells his story of landing a spot on the US Ski Team, competing for rights on the Olympic Team, and the disappointment of realizing his ski team days were numbered. Then an ad in Ski Racing magazine promoting the last Pro Ski Tour races of the season caught his eye. From here you'll need to read the rest of the story. 

The Chief

Established in 1976, Granite Chief is one of the few if not the only ski shop still operating under original ownership. We are a California ski shop and a longtime local’s favorite. Granite Chief was the first to introduce world cup ski tuning, repairs and custom ski boot fitting on the consumers level. The Chief was the first shop to purchase a factory level stonegrinder and show off our tuning and boot fitting skills behind glass for our customers to view the work as it is being done.

Today we are a full service ski shop offering top of the line ski equipment and skiwear, a full line of rental and performance demo skis, and of course all the state of the art equipment services you have come to expect from The Chief.

Over the years we have expanded our business into summer sports, making us largest sporting goods stores in the Truckee area. Years of living and working in the mountains has made us experts in hiking, trail running, kayaking, and paddle boarding. We are a valuable resource for visitors and locals alike. We are located at 11368 Donner Pass Road, Truckee, California 96161.
