For the fourth year, SKI Magazine surveyed its readers and a panel of industry experts to select the Top 60 Ski Shops in North America. For the second year, SKI also presents awards for the top five Regional Shops of the Year and the National Shop of the Year, which goes to Buchika’s Ski Shops, a 34-year-old operation with locations in Salem, N.H., and Haverhill, Mass. The shops were ranked on six criteria: staff expertise, selection, value, backshop services, bootfitting and innovative programs. More than 1,200 storefronts were rated by 10,000 readers.
