About Us

Whether you’re a never-ever or serious backcountry adventurer, we believe you belong outside - and we want to help you get there in the right gear as quickly and affordably as possible.

Saami's is a family business, originally founded by local ski pioneer Scott Nyman.  He and his wife Becky have raised a generation of first class skiers.  But that was never really the point - the point was a love of the outdoors and being together in the mountains, up and away from the pressures of everyday life.  

Several seasons ago, the Butterworth family joined the team.  Transplants from Sydney, Australia and San Diego, California, Andrew and Sam quickly learned that surviving winter meant embracing it.  Once the family started skiing, they were all in - joining a ski team….then managing it; helping found a ski education foundation; and ultimately ownership in the ski shop.

Saami's has become the first and last pit stop on ski days for many, and we hope you can join our family too!
