Stockli Stormrider 95 Skis | Winter 2017-2018

There's a new ski brand hitting the wall at Granite Chief this winter, and it's none other than the Swiss power house, the Stormrider 95 from Stöckli.  We are fired up to have these hand-made beauties adorning our ski wall, and that's not only because they look awesome, but because they ski even better.    

Backpacking Desolation & Skiing Australia

Backpacking Desolation Wilderness

Shop employee, Mike, recounts his adventures and mis-adventures backpacking in Desolation Wilderness.  "We have Desolation Wilderness backpacking just minutes down the road from us, so it's a natural place to go.  It feels like our backyard, and that's what maybe led us to be more casual than we should have been".  

Rather than spending summer relaxing on Lake Tahoe's sandy shorelines this summer, shop employee, Jesse Cassidy, had something different on his mind.  After Tahoe's largest winter in decades, he still hadn't had enough, so he packed up and headed to the Southern Hemisphere in hopes to spend his 'summer months' skiing Australia's winter. 

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.
