Our Story

Deep in the Green Mountains of Vermont lies the small town of Jamaica. People from Jamaica are Vermonter’s Vermonters. In the middle of Jamaica sits an unassuming white farmhouse, with what appears to be a classic big red Vermont barn in the backyard.

Once you enter the “barn” you are transported to what is known as Gear Heavan. Thousands of skis, snowboards, boots, bindings, and a full selection of Stand Up Paddleboard equipment including tons of Boards, Paddles, and accessories.

Our Gear Warehouse features two floors jam packed with New, Used, and Certified Pre-Owned gear from all the major brands including Dynastar, Rossignol, Lange, Look, NSP, Starboard, and Burton.

Vermont Ski and Sport has seen much evolution over the 35 years since our first windsurfer sale as New England Sailboard Company. The proverbial fourth child of Jamaica resident Jonathan Bischof, Vermont Ski and Sport has remained single owner and family run for it’s entirety.

Our family’s passion for the outdoors, and addiction to awesome gear has us consistently on the hunt for the latest and greatest in innovation and equipment. We know our stuff because we’ve lived the lifestyle. Whether it be the quest for 100 days on snow in a season, or traveling the eastern seaboard to compete in Stand Up Paddleboard races, we’ve been there, we’ve tried the gear, and we’ve collected all the great products that make you faster, smoother, lighter, and don’t forget cooler.
