Pinnacle Ski and Sports was born in 1985 under the name Bedside Tuners, after owner David Wolfgang realized he could turn a profit tuning skis overnight and delivering them to their owners to hit the slopes in the morning. Wolfgang would leave blueberry muffins perched on the tips of the skis as a cheery extra.
Today, Pinnacle Ski and Sports lives on Mountain Road and has expanded into the digital age with Inner Bootworks, but locals still love it. It’s where a majority of you go to snag gear, and this year, you gave it up for Pinnacle Ski and Sports in heaps.
The store took the top spot for customer service, outdoor and sportswear, ski and snowboard tuning and repair, and ski rentals, plus third place for best bike shop.
Wolfgang himself netted top Stowe entrepreneur, and No. 1 volunteer or local who gives back, and was Stowe Area Association’s 2016 business person of the year.
Pinnacle, and David, you’re tops in Stowe!
