Bloomington, Minnesota

Pierce Skate & Ski is a fourth-generation, family-owned-and-operated ski shop located in Bloomington, Minnesota. Since 1936, the goal of the caring staff has been to provide customers with the finest equipment, clothing and service through their own active participation in and passion for the sports that they sell.

Product testing and assessment are key tenets and as such, Pierce is the only shop in North America who has been to Mt. Hood for the last 21 years conducting independent race product testing. In addition to that, Pierce has closed its shop doors the last eight Aprils to send the the entire staff west to Grand Targhee to test all-mountain and pure mountain skis. Pierce Skate & Ski was the first shop in North America to install both the Montana Challenge stone grinding system as well as the Fischer 3D foot scanning system. The shop is proud to say that Kristina Koznick, Tasha Nelson, Martina Sailer, Lindsey Vonn, Kaylin Richardson, Sterling Grant, Michael Ankeny, Matt Strand, Paula Moltzan and Isaiah Nelson were all Pierce customers before they made the U.S. Ski Team.
