About Viking Ski Shop

About Viking Ski ShopViking Ski Shop is well-known in the Chicago region for our high-quality skis and snowboards, knowledgeable staff, and exceptional customer service. We are consistently rated among the best ski and snowboard shops in the country by the ski industry. Viking is also one of a few shops to receive special national recognition by Snowsports Industries America.

We’ve built our 50+ year reputation on skiing. Everyone on our staff is a skier whose main goal is to help you get the most out of the sport we all love.

Every winter we go to the slopes to places like Copper, Boyne, Mammoth, Aspen, and Vail for extensive testing. We want to make sure every item we offer you, from skis and boots to goggles and gloves, lives up to the Viking standards. This is why you can be absolutely confident that, when we advise you on gear, we’re not just stating the manufacturer’s claims.

This unwavering dedication to quality and customer service has created the kind of trust that keeps Viking customers, regular skiers and snowboarders alike, coming back year after year.

Whether you ski or snowboard once a year or five times a week, you will find everything you need at Viking Ski Shop. We carry a wide selection of top-rated skis and snowboards, boots, bindings, poles, goggles, helmets, and clothing. Viking also has skis and snowboards available to rent.
