How We Got Here
Owners Brian Potter and Vicky Howe have been operating Powderhound Sports in the current location downtown Rossland since Dec 2011. This mountain sports store is nestled in the beautiful town of Rossland servicing the community since it was started in 1971 by the retired mountain enthusiast Don Vockeroth.
Brian has over 20 years of technical experience working with skis, from assembly, sales, customized boot fitting, to full repair. "Certainly one of my major passions, that the service side of things is top notch...If it can be repaired, we can likely do it.”
Vicky brings over 20 years of customer service, 10 years of mountain equipment sales, matching and boot fitting to Powderhound Sports. "Honest and accurate, gets the right gear to the right person... I work in a big kid's toy store!"
You can find the owners/staff out in the woods, skiing, biking around the community or come by the store!
