Since 1986 Powderhound has been a centerpiece in the Rossland BC area snow scene.  Founded by the legendary Don Vockeroth, it has taken many shapes over the years.  Currently, Don has taken to retirement and Brian Potter and Vicky Howe have taken the helm.  Brian and Don worked togething the shop for a year where they both strived for top customer service.   Those values still live strong.


We are a ski shop with a propensity towards outdoor adventure. During the winter, we specialize in alpine and backcountry skiing, custom boot fitting and expert tuning. We carry top of the line of ski and touring equipment, clothing, and accessories. In the summer we cater to campers, hikers and climbers. We also carry casual clothing and souvenirs.
