Unlike Any Other Ski Shops in NH: Keeping You Grindin’

Posted by Administrator on 6/11/2014

No other ski shops in NH can testify to the fact that they’ve provided the New England area with as much devotion to extreme sports as we can. Since 1968, we’ve been in the extreme sports business before it was a business. We started Ken Jones Ski Mart purely as a labor of love and have been both surprised and humbled by its success over these many years. Our passion for all things extreme greatly supersedes any urge for financial success or mere bragging rights. We’ve been able to do what we love for a living for three generations now and are by no means slowing down.

Not even the lack of snow will keep us from encouraging our customers to keep grabbing bigger air or grinding down a flight of steps. Instead, unlike most seasonal ski shops in NH, the summer merely means that we’ll be thrashing concrete instead of snow and practicing our darkslide instead of our nosepress over nose manual (now that’s a sentence for all you bilingual extreme sports nuts). Anyway, what we at Ken Jones Ski Mart do in the summer is focus our attention on skateboarding and longboarding. We stock plenty of skate decks, trucks, bearings, wheels, and more skating paraphernalia to keep our customers cruising through the dog days of summer. And, luckily, we’ve got plenty of local skateparks to take advantage of.

NH Skateparks

Ski shops NH from Ken Jones

First, there’s the Curtis Park located at 402 Auburn St. in downtown Manchester. Like most of the greatest skate spots in history, this place was once a swimming pool but, in 2001, its true destiny was met when it was turned into a sweet cement skate park right in the heart of Manchester. This place has all the rails and lips a skater could ask for. It’s only a few miles from our Manchester ski shop so, in one trip, you can get yourself all the skate gear you need and head directly to the skatepark to tear it up.

There’s also the Red Alert indoor skatepark right in Dover, NH at 6 Grove St. Made entirely out of wood, this park boasts a full bowl, half pipes, quarter pipes, and rails that make it the perfect place to try out the new boards we provide you with. Concord, NH is home to the Concord Skatepark located right next to the Everett Ice Arena and offers rails, ledges, spines, a funbox with two quarter pipes on each side, a pyramid, and a launch ramp. The David W. Deane concrete skatepark in Nashua, NH is one of the most well known in the region and has a 6 to 11 foot traditional bowl (vertical all the way around), straight banks, street course, rails, ledges, hips, pump bumps, bowled corners, and extensions.
