2012 Canadian Retailer Of The Year


Boutique Daniel Lachance - Mont-Tremblanc, QC

Thirty three years ago Daniel opened a small tuning shop in a very small building as he was preparing skis for his travels on the world cup circuit. The building has been renovated and expanded many times to become an attractive three story building located in the old village of Mont-Tremblant in the Laurentian Mountains north of the city of Montréal.

Progressive addition of sales in skis, boots and clothing has contributed to the offering of high quality products and services to the consumer. Now highly trained staff is well known for the passion and the enthusiasm they transmit to their clients.

Premier brands of clothing, accessories and skiing equipment are offered to customers, who very often, travel from far away to benefit from the well established reputation of customer service and personal attention provided by sales staff and technicians.

The personnel in all departments of the boutique: skis, boots, clothing offer to the consumer quality services and is renowned for its attention to details and perfection. Customers from all walks of life frequently visit the well manicured boutique with the view to acquiring soft and hard goods which are unique and exclusive. The purchasing staff constantly searches for high quality and innovative products.

While the boot department enjoys a great reputation for its boot fitting services, the skis department attends not only to the needs of the recreational and high performance skiers but also to the many racers from national team to entry levels.

The different departments of the boutique are complemented by a state of the art tuning and repair shop and by a rental shop much appreciated by travelers and local skiers.

Over the years the boutique has established itself in the community by being involved in supporting racers, pro riders, coaches and athletes but also by supporting humanitarian causes such as palliative care services for terminally ill patients.

"The SIA Snow Show is the best time of the year! You get to see all the new technology coming out, you get to see all the sales reps you have relationships with, and then right around the corner you get to test everything out at the On-Snow Demo at Copper." Katy Graul, Ski Brokers, Fraser, CO
"For me, the Show is so much more than just a product presentation, it's a true breeding ground for ideas and inspiration. The forums, the marketing information, and the opportunities for retailers like me to network with each other has become a major feature for me." Teddy Schiavoni, Summit Ski Shop, Framingham, MA
"It's the place to go to see as many manufacturing companies as you can see under one roof at one time. It’s the latest and greatest of everything that’s going to be coming through the stores in the next six to eight months. I think people do a disservice to themselves by not going." Susan Woody, sales rep, Turtle Fur
"This Show is so important because it's the preview for what’s to come; it's the big picture. You can talk to the people that are in sales, product development, we can tell you plans for next year as well as help retailers with their buy so they become informed and make better decisions for their business." Ryan Green, Nordic Division Manager, Rossignol
"From an international perspective, I can see that the whole US snow sports industry is truly a community. Everybody's here and you can see that it's a family." Sigi Rumphuber, Product Designer/Engineer, G3
"This whole business is based on relationships, so if you don’t get that face to face time it's difficult to continue those relationships or build new ones. And of course we have to be at the Show because it gives a chance for everyone to see the full line, and to talk about any problems or potential opportunities." Josh Roberts, VP, Nitro Snowboards
