Outfitting, Gear, Clothing, Services, and Rentals

Back Country Ski and Sport has proudly outfitted Salem and Blacksburg, Virginia since 1979.

5/25/2020 Update – ​After 27 years of service in the Roanoke Valley we have made the decision to close our Salem location. This was a very difficult decision and not taken lightly. It has been a wonderful journey to serve the community here and build relationships that have flourished far beyond just doing business. We’ve had marriages, families, and what will be lifelong friendships originate out of this store. The Back Country Ski and Sport crew is and always will be an unbreakable family.

The plan going forward: We have been spending the last few weeks cleaning things up and getting the store sanitized and ready for a liquidation sale. Starting tomorrow 5/26 we will be open for business in the Salem location Tuesday-Saturday 10-5pm. Our last day of operation is tentatively set for June 15th. The Blacksburg location will have to remain as “by appointment only” due to limited staffing and the plan for reopening in Blacksburg will be updated at a later date as our main focus is with the Salem location for now. With a small number of employees hours could change if something comes up and we will let you know if they do. We are still flexible on shopping appointments in Blacksburg or if you can’t make it here during normal hours. Our employees will be wearing masks and gloves as needed and we will continue to clean surfaces frequently. This sale is store wide with many items up to 60% off. If you love all things outdoors we still have loads of great inventory marked as low as you will ever find it!

If you think you have a personal item at the store such as skis in our ski shop or a boat on repair or a consignment item, we will be calling everyone with options for pick up. If you need to get in touch, the best way to do so is by DM on Facebook, email andrew@bcski.com or call the Salem store during business hours at 540-389-8602.
 
To the vast amount of people that have shopped with us over the years we thank you so much. We hope to see everyone in here over the next couple weeks. Please do us a favor and share this post and come shop our remaining inventory.
 

Thank you,

Andrew Hoskins

General Manager

So sad to see it go. Have been a long time customer and was my go to place for boots and shoes. Nick taught me more about shoes than I imagined. They were always good to my VWCC hiking students.

So sad! 😔 18 years ago I stopped by Back Country to buy a sleeping bag and ended up meeting the man I would marry. These two kids wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for this shop. We’ve gotten to know so many amazing people through BCski who are now like family. It is really sad to see it close.

Scott Masterson maybe you can get your letters back? 😉 Sorry to see this one for sure.

This is really sad to hear and a real loss to the hikers and paddlers of the valley. My first job was at this store, I still have great friends from this store, and I always visited when I came home. Roanoke won't be the same.

I’m so sad to hear this news! Back Country is literally part of our family. My husband worked there years ago and now my son works there. 😢

So sorry to hear this news! My wife and I are from Christiansburg but we left the NRV 24 years ago. We were Back Country customers and we still have all our backpacking gear. Stopped in your Blacksburg location the last time we were in and it brought back a lot of good memories. We live in the Asheville area now and several years ago a REI opened up. It really hurt the smaller outdoor stores. Glad your other location is still open. Best wishes...

So sad to hear. Really enjoyed the few years working there. Great people with a passion for the outdoors. You will be missed!

So so so sad to hear this! You all are the best!! We have loved your impeccable customer service over the years. You will be missed!!!

So sorry to hear this. I will certainly miss you guys. Thank you for being there for us all these years. I wish you the best.

Super bummed. Worked there 20+ years ago. Best job and community ever. This lockdown is destroying small businesses like BC while Amazon posts record profits.

Sad day in the Boyer home😔 Wonderful friendship’s made and a ton of great memories!

Great store, great knowledgeable people and good quality products. Tuff to hear the news but when I think of you it will always be good memories. See you on the water.

Sucks. I bought my first snowboard at this shop back in 93. Must have just opened. Still have the board. You guys will surely he missed.

So sorry. So many people that have had a significant impact on my life.

Not sure I recall seeing the request to terminate operations in triplicate come across my desk. I'll miss you all.

So sorry 😐 you will be missed more than you know!

so sorry to see this happen. Bless you all

I am sad to see you go. Thank you for all you’ve done for the community.

Legendary store and family that will never be forgotten!!! All the best to those that most need it right now!

Wow, they really held up well. Where were you keep them? They will make great refrigerator magnets!
