Articles in "Ski and Snowboard Outfitters"


   There’s a new face working the floor this season at Dekdebruns Ski Shop ... although her name might ring a bell. Buffalo native Carly Harrington brings her knowledge of the winter sports industry to the ski/snowboard shop and its customers, offering her first-hand experiences in choosing the proper gear for on the slopes.  Afterall, she has quite an impressive resume of snowboarding competitions and top rankings, and this park shredder that calls Holiday Valley her home mountain is excited to be back on the scene.  Currently a Freshman studying Nursing at the University at Buffalo, Harrington started her sales position at the Ellicottville shop this past October, and so far is loving every minute of it.

One thing is for certain: the times they are a changing here in our quaint little ski town. Whether it’s the annual improvements in facilities at Holiday Valley and HoliMont, or the addition and evolution of retailers in the village, it’s safe to say there is something new to see each and every time you venture here. One of the most notable changes to the landscape in the past year has been the relocation of one of the iconic ski/snowboard specialty shops in Ellicottville - Mud, Sweat ‘N Gears (MSG). Previously located at 21 Washington Street, this crew of dedicated lifelong winter sports enthusiasts has nestled into a newly reinvented location at 18 Monroe Street (previously known as the Ellicottville Marketplace) … so we dropped in to see what was on tap for the upcoming season.
