Tahoe has several outdoor stores in the area, but generally if I can’t find what I’m looking for I’ll try Tahoe Sports LTD and I can find it there. They have a vast array of outdoor equipment, along with summer and winter rentals. They provide great customer service and all of their staff is knowledgeable in their area of expertise. They are located next to Raley’s in the Raley’s Shopping Center neighboring the Heavenly Village in South Lake Tahoe.
I’ve shopped at Tahoe Sports LTD several times. Last year, I bought a pair of bindings, along with swimsuits and several other small products such as a watch and sunglasses. I was also in there last year looking to purchase a new mountain bike. I was approached by Mike, who was extremely knowledgeable and suggested a Specialized bike for me. He allowed me to test ride in the back parking lot and around the area a bit. Unfortunately, I didn’t buy the bike and haven’t bought a new one yet, but received great customer service from Mike. I’ve also worked with Jacob who is very helpful in the winter with skis and boots. Below are some pictures of the store.
As I mentioned, they offer all types of summer and winter products for sale along with rentals. In the summer, they offer rentals for bikes, climbing, watersports and camping. Some of their summer retail products include mountain and road bikes, climbing equipment, backpacks and swimsuits. In the winter, they provide rentals that include skis, snowboards, boots, poles and helmets. Some of the products they offer for purchase include skis, snowboards, boots, poles, bindings and backpacks. They also offer several smaller products such as swimming goggles, watches and books. They honestly do offer such a vast array of outdoor equipment and products that you can pretty much find anything you need. Some brands they offer, but are definitely not limited to include: Salomon, Burton, Dakine and Specialized.
