If I could give them 100 stars I would.
Below is my recent experience with Richard at Vintage Ski World. I have a pair of fairly old and unique skis that belonged at one time to a person who is now famous (more or less). Richard took the time to look at my ski equipment photos, gave me his input during several phone conversations and emails and helped me decide what to do. He patiently treated me like a real person not like a dollar sign which is so refreshing in these challenging financial times. Richard is just a really good person who is trustworthy. That is my recent experience. Thank you!! Natalie
Fast shipping to Canada. Very nice quality of paper. Safe wrapping. Will add a nice touch of vintage ski at the cottage. Thanks a lot!
Richard and company could not provide a better service to anyone that even slightly reminiscences about their skiing past. What a great store and unbelievable items. I bought some vintage skis in great shape that are not just for the cabin wall - these are front and center for enjoyment all year round. Richard should be in a Ski Hall of Fame for his amazing eye for his efforts in giving back to the Sport and his amazing collection of gear!
Thanks Kirby for your kind words. I hope that your K2 Holidays are a great addition for the Seattle area Ski Museum! Sometimes it is a challenge for me to sell such premium skis out of my Collection, but it becomes easier when they are going to someone who knows their importance. Thanks for your support.
I met Richard Allen maybe 15 years ago or more, before VSW and we are still friends and I am still buying vintage, real vintage, ski artifacts from him. Sometimes we trade, on occasion he buys from me, but it's not just about the stuff, it's about shared experiences and knowledge. Richard shares his passion on a real global stage, and provides people everywhere with the opportunity to own real pieces of ski history.
Thanks Paul for your kind post. I also am so grateful for your support and vast knowledge about ski equipment and history. It has been helpful for you to be my 'go to guy' when I have questions about any of my products. Anyone who gets to Crested Butte should check out Paul's ski museum called the Ski History Inn, at the base of the Crested Butte ski area. I will be in Crested Butte to do a big sale with Paul at the Ski History Inn on July 12th & 13th. Don't miss it if your are in the area.
I just received the ski posters I ordered earlier this week and they are great. The posters are made of nice and thick paper. I also liked the way you wrapped them in tissue paper before putting them in the tube for shipping, it really preserved the edges of the posters. Thanks so much. I would highly recommend this site to all friends and family.
Thanks Leeanne for your post. It is really important to us that our customers get the posters in the same great condition that they are in, when we pack them for each order. All of the posters that we print are on nice think paper, which is our preference. Thanks for noticing.
Your passion keeps our heritage alive. Where we come from is so much more than a memory because you allow us to touch and feel our past. Your passion makes you our most meaningful ski historian. Thanks so much.
For over a decade Richard has been working with my wife and I to build our
Ski memorabilia and ski artifact collection at "Hooge Ski History Haus" in Crested Butte, CO into one of the finest in the country. Because of his knowledge
and experience in this field Richard is always discovering rare and unique items
that fill specific voids in our collection. It is always a pleasure working with
Richard knowing how much he loves what he is doing and what a benefit he
Is to ski history nationally and internationally.
Vintage Ski World was one of the best shops in Aspen, i went in almost everyday it was in town... sadly it is no longer there but I can still get all the coolest old hats and posters online! I went up and saw Richard in Missouri Height's and was astounded how his collection has grown he has every piece of ski wear and memorabilia from the start of the sport... Its ski heaven up there!!!
love your shop!
I really enjoyed viewing all the different collections on this site, it brings back sooo many great memories of skiing! If you're thinking of buying a ski memorabilia gift for your special someone, look no further. This site has it all! Fast and IMMEDIATE shipping. Excellent customer service. Affordable prices. Gifts for all ages and available all year long! Thank you Richard for sharing your passion with all of us 🙂
Richard, you have the finest collection-warehouse of vintage ski products on the planet! And your collection of vintage posters and your ability to replicate personal posters is fantastic. You should give tours of your warehouse-it's great!!!
