YOUR SKIING HEADQUARTERS
Spend some time in this neck of the woods and you’ll become well acquainted with the Greenwood’s Ski Haus difference: our heritage, our people, and a great location that’s as much a gathering place as it is a store.
Read the history below and you’ll get a feel for our tradition of service, which goes all the way back to 1957 when Bob Greenwood opened his first store on State Street. An avalanche of history, a bunch of fun people, and a store that’s the gateway to Bogus — it’s all here.
The year was 1957. Eisenhower was president. The Bridge Over the River Kwai was playing in theaters. Alpine skis were long, boots were leather, and bindings left something to be desired.
It’s been more than five decades since Bob Greenwood opened “Bob’s Ski Haus” on State Street, and we’ve seen a lot since then: The graduated length method (GLM) of skiing. The first all-plastic buckle boots from Lange. Spademan bindings. Jean-Claude Killy. Shaped skis, skate skis, twin-tips, and an amazing breadth of fashion that’s fun to think about — from wool knickers to the most form-fitting of ski pants.
We’ve moved locations three times over the years: from the original State Street store to an A-frame on Bogus Basin Road (still there, just across the street) to the current location in 1978. And our “Ownership Hall of Fame” counts a number of folks you probably know, starting with Bob Greenwood and including, at different points in time, Jim Brandon, Harry Clark, JohnGreenwood, and Bill Tregoning. Carrie Gochnour became a partner with Bill and John in 1995. The next chapter began in 2002, when Carrie and Jeff Lewerenz, former hardgoods manager, became the owners of Greenwood’s, allowing Bill and John to spend more time with their families. In the fall of 2013, Carrie and Jeff welcomed Eric Straubhar as a co-owner of Greenwood’s bringing years of skiing and outdoor experience. The start of 2018 brought a few more changes once again to Greenwoods, with Jeff and Eric being joined by Michele Lewerenz as the softgoods buyer and co-owner.
Even with all of the changes that have occurred in the ski industry over the years, one thing has remained constant: our commitment as Boise’s only ski specialty store, carrying the best brands and striving to provide the best service. That’s why generations of families have come to trust us with their business — it isn’t unusual to see grandparents and grandchildren in the store at the same time, both excited about the prospect of skiing.
Oh, there’s something else that hasn’t changed — you can often find Bob Greenwood in the store, mornings before he heads up to Bogus, having a cup of coffee and talking about — you guessed it — skiing.
Thanks for your continued business over the years. We appreciate it, and look forward to serving you well into the future.
Jeff & Michele Lewerenz, and Eric Straubhar- Owners
YOUR SKI RENTAL HEADQUARTERS
We’ve got a broad selection of high-quality equipment that can either be rented or leased — your choice, depending upon your specific needs. If you’re only going to ski a few times, then renting might be the right way to go. If you’re intending to ski more, but aren’t ready to purchase, then leasing could be the best choice. Not sure? Ask us, and we’ll help you determine what’s appropriate for you.
YOUR SKI SERVICES HEADQUARTERS
Greenwood’s offers a variety of services including mounting, tuning, ski race tuning, waxing, delaminations, and custom boot fitting and repairs.
YOUR SKIING LEASE HEADQUARTERS
Greenwood’s Ski Haus offers numerous options for the cost AND performance conscious skier. Our leasing packages come with features like season-long free maintenance, boot adjustments, size upgrades for growing kids, and an affordable buy-out option.
Choosing the right package for you or your child is important. Use the information below
to decide which package will work best.
NEW & USED:
Greenwood’s has packages in each category, offering similar performance characteristics, but equipment of different wear and tear. All skis are tuned and maintained throughout the season. New packages give the user the pleasure of skiing on all new equipment and putting in the first scratches. Used equipment has one or more seasons use, but is still in top shape. Used equipment is limited to stock on hand. We begin our leasing program in late August and used lease equipment generally becomes very limited by mid-November. We will do our best to accommodate your needs but at some point we do run out of both used and new lease gear. Remember that old phrase about the early bird catching the worm and visit us early for all your leasing needs.
New and used adult packages consist of sport skis which offer the beginner to intermediate skier a tool that can enhance their progress for years to come. Sport boots offer great comfort, warmth, and performance. Sport bindings complete the package offering all-angle release and excellent ease of operation. The equipment in this lease package gives you more “bang for the buck” and a performance level that will keep it serviceable for years to come.
New and used Prodigy packages are designed for skiers who want to improve their skiing performance beyond what the Sport package offers. The wider, twin tip ski offerings make it easier to ski the whole mountain. The performance level skis and bindings are packaged with our Sport boots, which offer great comfort, warmth and performance.
The junior sport packages, whether new or used, offer the skier optimum convenience, safety, and performance suitable for the recreational junior skier. Sport skis, boots, and bindings, provide junior skiers with all-angle release and are so easy to use that kids can get into them without help.
|Jr Sport Skis/Bindings||$140||$130||$80||$75|
|Jr Sport Boots||$60||$50||$35||$35|
JUNIOR PERFORMANCE/TWIN TIP:
Junior skiers of all ability levels will appreciate the versatility and performance offered in our new and used Performance Twin skis. Paired up with junior performance bindings and boots, the skier gets the best of an all-mountain ski. Perfect for kids who want to take part in skiing the whole mountain, on and off trail.

Junior performance boots give the skier ultimate control over their skis and performance bindings provide all-angle release.
|Armada or Line Ski/Binding||$240||$220||$195||$185|
|Jr Performance Boots||$80||$75||$50||$45|
