What sets Recess apart?

Recess is a rider owned and driven store. That means they know what skateboarders and snowboarders are looking for. Before Recess, there was a void in the High Country for a year round store that catered to everyday riders or first timers.

They don’t just talk about skateboarding or snowboarding, they know these activities firsthand! Their whole staff actively participates in these on a regular basis. So when they recommend a product, they’re not just trying to make a sale, they want customers to receive the best possible service and put them into the right product that will work best for them. Knowledge is key. The best way to know how a product works is to use it. This is what sets their staff apart.

But it’s not just riders they want to help. Anyone interested in snowboarding and skateboarding is welcome. They help customers on all levels, whether local or visitor.


What are the products at Recess?

Since Recess is rider owned and driven, the staff loves skateboarding and snowboarding. This type of personal involvement makes them care about the brands they carry. They want to get customers to feel like they have come to the right place for quality goods. They pride themselves on carrying only brands that they are willing to stand behind.

Recess carries recognizable top brands that you may not be able to find anywhere else in the High Country: Vans, Capita, Nike SB, Rome, Union and more! They also carry a lot of smaller, up-and-coming brands that you can’t find at your everyday retail store. They love introducing customers to cool brands they haven’t even heard of.
