JOIN OUR BACKCOUNTRY SKI COMMUNITY
EMBRACE A NEW WAY TO ENJOY THE WINTER IN BOULDER!
If you are like many of us, you still enjoy getting out and riding, even in the cold. But there's something even better to enjoy here in Colorado: sliding around under your own power in the beautiful mountains on skis! Now we can help you stay fit all winter long without having to depend on your indoor trainer or riding on icy trails.
At Full Cycle (Boulder's Cycling Hub, home of Colorado Multisport - the country's premier triathlon store, and the Tune Up Tavern & Espresso - a full-service taproom, cocktail bar, and coffee shop) we're expanding our business to offer backcountry ski touring equipment and services.
A large part of our 9,000 square foot retail store will feature world-leading ski tour brands from October to March, including DYNAFIT, POMOCA, SCARPA, DPS SKIS, PHANTOM GLIDE, ORTOVOX, HESTRA GLOVES.
Get ready to learn and enjoy back country ski touring, Alpine Touring ("AT") powder skiing, ski mountaineering, uphill fitness skinning, and even skimo racing, a popular winter activity in Europe for summer-based endurance athletes (in fact, the sport of ski mountaineering making its debut at the 2026 Milano-Cortina Winter Olympics).
We can help you avoid the crowds and gain the whole experience. Let us help you find your groove with brand new, state of the art skis, boots, bindings, skins, gloves, and backcountry safety gear from some of the top brands in the world.
We can barely contain our excitement at bringing on winter gear and services this year! We plan to keep plenty busy on the bike side of things through the winter, but now we hope we can offer you more reasons to visit us, even when it's cold and snowy outside.
MEET OUR NEW PARTNERS
SKIS, BOOTS, BINDINGS, & GEAR
LIGHTWEIGHT FROM THE ALPS
Speed, lightness, and efficiency in the mountains. Dynafit is a German/Italian company founded in the 1950s that makes hardgoods & softgoods for mountain endurance 365 days a year. In the 1980s they invented the pin-binding, today’s gold standard for ski touring. Since then, with the invention of the category-defying TLT Vertical binding, the game-changing TLT5 ski touring boot, and the full-line full system approach to product development, they’ve been leading the way in the ski mountaineering world.
WORLD LEADING SKI TOURING SKINS
Founded in 1933 in the Swiss Alps, Pomoca is the oldest ski touring skins manufacturer and the unrivaled leader in the industry. Every skin they manufacture has at least 70% mohair, sourced from Angora goats in South Africa. Their skin-tracking initiative allows you to type in the serial number of your new skins and see what goat farm the skins’ hairs come from. Less slip, more grip and all the glide you need to make the backcountry your new best friend.
FROM THE ITALIAN DOLOMITES
Italian shoe-making innovation and tradition since 1938, world leader in producing the finest footwear for mountaineering, trekking, hiking, alpine running, climbing and skiing.Legendary durability and fit, used by many of the top climbers and explorers throughout the highest peaks in the world, as well as military forces of Italy, U.S.A, France, Spain in extreme conditions. Scarpa (italian for shoe) was the first to build Gore-Tex boots, plastic telemark skiing boots, and telemark/alpine touring compatible boots.
DURABLE, PERFORMACE, SUSTAINABLE SKIS
MADE IN THE USA
Design, Roots, and Engineering made in Salt Lake City from 2005, to make perfect skis with space age carbon technology for those who live and breathe the sport, trusted by the best skiers in the world. DPS is responsible for the world’s first and only pure pre-pregnated carbon fiber sandwich ski, the first 120mm-waisted powder pintail, the first rockered ski with sidecut, and PHANTOM, a paradigm-shifting permanent, one-time application base treatment that provides increased glide across all snow conditions for skis and snowboards.
PERMANENT WAXLESS BASE GLIDE TREATMENT
Apply once, glide forever. PHANTOM Glide is a permanent, high-performance base treatment for skis and snowboards that increases hydrophobicity and improves glide performance across a variety of snow conditions. PHANTOM Glide is not wax. PHANTOM Glide differs from traditional wax because wax is not permanent. Wax is a temporary glide solution that functions only by coating the top layer of your base. After just a few runs, traditional wax wears off and glide performance diminishes.
SAFETY EQUIPMENT & SUSTAINABLE APPAREL
360° risk reduction in the mountains. Since Ortovox was founded in the Bavarian Alps in 1980, ORTOVOX has focused on protecting the mountains and mountain athletes. As a pioneer in the avalanche safety field, ORTOVOX has played a key role in the development of emergency equipment for mountain sports. From the first layer to the last, Ortovox blends natural and innovative fibers to make highly comfortable and protective mountain wear.
THE HOLY GRAIL OF GLOVES
80 years of glove making history. Founded in 1936 and now run by the third and fourth generation of Magnussons from the small village of Hestra in Sweden with a production of over 2 million pairs of gloves per year, Hestra Gloves are world renowned for their warmth, protection and dexterity in the most varied environments. All gloves are manufactured in their own factories, with individually sourced leather, fabric, wool and other materials, which ensures the highest level of quality. Several models are even handmade by some of the most experienced glove makers in Europe.
