Welcome to California Ski Company

We are the East Bay's only specialty ski shop, selling ski equipment—and ski equipment only—here in Berkeley since 1989. We are completely dedicated to assisting you with the most highly trained, knowledgeable staff in the Bay; our mission is to ensure your skiing satisfaction!

Every pleasurable ski experience starts with the right equipment, whether you're droppin' the Palisades at Squaw or looking for the best skis to help you to the next level. There are few "bad" modern skis, but there can easily be bad matches between ski and skier. Whether you want a ski that will accelerate your technical skill development or simply wish to make what you already do easier and more fun, we help you find the perfect ski and length for your skill and energy levels, preferred terrain and conditions and personal skiing goals.

Ski boots are even more important than skis. Boots form 100% of the connection between skier and ski; they are the control link between skier, skis and snow. We specialize in custom boot fitting and orthotics and assure not only perfect fit but also ultimate performance, tailored to your specific needs.

Come talk to the experts who ski what they sell!
