Welcome to Saami Ski Shop, Changes for 2021/2022 Season

The Nyman family have been serving the skiing needs of families in Utah for decades in a variety of ways from coaching and instruction all the way down to fitting boots on kids for the first time. We all wish that could continue for ever, but Scott has other things to accomplish and goals to meet.  As such, ownership has passed to the Butterworth family (Andrew, Samantha and their children Hana, Lane and Will).  You may have met Andrew at the store in recent years.  He is easily identifiable by his Australian accent (albeit fading).

New Season, New Look

Welcome back for another great season of skiing and snowboarding. When you come into the shop you will quickly notice that we have expanded.  Rental is in a whole new wing of the shop.  We took the opportunity to remodel a few items as well. The decor has been updated and will continue to be enhanced.  If there is part of the decor that you like, the chances are you can buy it.  We have partnered with one of Utah County's premiere antique pickers to change up the shop.
