Buckman's Ski Shops began in 1971 with our first ski shop opening in Perkiomenville, PA. Known for great customer service and quality products, we quickly became one of the area's leading ski shops.

Buckman's History!

Buckman's has 40 years of experience with more than 300 employees in our six retail stores across suburban Philadelphia, carrying the largest inventory of ski/snowboard merchandise and rental equipment in the state of PA. Our state-of-the-art workshop is the finest on the east coast, covering 3200 sq. ft with over $450,000 worth of tuning equipment.

We are proud to be known as one of the first ski shops in the nation to begin carrying snowboarding gear and apparel. Today, Buckman's Boardroom is Pennsylvania's premiere retail outlet for snowboarding equipment.
