2013 US Retailer Of The Year


Satellite Boardshop - Boulder, CO

Satellite Boardshop opened in 2002 by JG Mazzotta and Raul Pinto to cater to the largely growing skateboard and snowboard cultures. Shortly after in 2005 Installation Shoe Gallery opened to cater to a growing sneaker collector population. Both shops, now 11 and 8 years old respectively, have become staples of not only Boulder, but also Colorado and the national stage of small retailers in core action sports and boutique retail. On the web both shops have their own websites with solid followings and share a blog site named “Installite,” that the community at large can find out about products, events, and statewide happenings. Both shops have always been situated in less than desirable locations and while many customers have always supported the shops, the time has come to give the shops a better stage to sit on. They have always been a destination, and with a better, more prominent location, we hope to facilitate our number one goal, “customer service”. Satellite provides snowboard and ski tuning and service, boot fitting and serves as a safe haven for boulders youth as a safe place to hang out. We opened up our new flagship store at 2835 Pearl St. Suite D in Boulder at the beginning of 2013and are excited on what the new space and future will bring.

"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
