Winter has arrived. Many in West Michigan say this with disdain, but not the staff and customers of Bill & Paul's Sporthaus! With a store full of new brands and products, this crowd is gearing up for a season full of fun.
The early cold saw Michigan ski resorts opening their slopes before Thanksgiving. If cold, sore feet are keeping you from skiing, let us dial in your boots with a free custom fit. If it's time to upgrade, consider a heated ski boot or using heated ski socks for all-day warmth. Haven't shopped skis in a while? You'll be surprised by how light and easy to use skis have become. The women's skis of today are engineered specifically to provide control and confidence on any terrain.
Despite our reputation, we're more than just a gear shop. (No, really!) Shop the Haus to stay warm and look great heading to work, school, or out on the town. Check out our unique selection of sweaters, insulated jackets, boots and accessories. We specialize in niche brands not found in other stores, such as Nils, Dale of Norway, Parajumpers, Save the Duck and Mitchies Matchings.
If heading to a local trail for winter hiking, dog walking, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing is more your pace, use our trail locater. You'll find local gems that are truly amazing in the winter. For these more aerobic activities, stay comfortable all day by layering up with wicking base layers, insulating mid-layers, and wind/waterproof shells.
"Be bold, start cold" and follow these tips from our staff for a successful outing:
- Wear proper boots.
- Add traction aids.
- Don't forget to drink water before starting.
Because winter fun is for the whole family, we carry a full line of youth clothing and gear. Obermeyer and others offer outerwear that grows with your kids. If your gang skis or snowboards, be sure to check out our amazing kid's trade-in/trade-up program. For backyard fun, we carry sleds, Snurfers and lots of other winter toys.
So whether you're outside for recreation, travel or out of necessity, remember: "There's no bad weather, just bad gear."
Stay warm, perform better and look great by starting your adventure at Bill & Paul's Sporthaus.
