OUR STORY

Life is too short to not do what you love. That’s why we started Excess Ski & Sport, an independent ski rental and equipment shop built on pure passion.


Since opening its doors in the Le Chamois Hotel at the base of Blackcomb Mountain in 1995, Excess Ski & Sport has provided thousands of Whistler locals and visitors with knowledgeable expertise and top quality ski and sporting equipment for confident outdoor experiences.

Our team members are not just salespeople; they’re sportspeople. They bring their passion for the outdoors to work with them everyday, and it shows. If not for their dedication, Excess Ski & Sport wouldn’t be the thriving establishment it is today.

And with our exciting selection of equipment featuring the best brands, latest quality developments, and high performance technology, our team has lots to talk about. We’re on the leading edge of the ski scene, from downhill to alpine, backcountry and freestyle. Come in and have a chat with one of our team members; there’s always something new to learn.

With a quick look at our brand catalogue, it’s easy to see that we take integrity of product very seriously. We stock the best names in outdoor performance to provide our customers with gear that lasts. As part of the Whistler Village Sports Group, a member of the national buyer Source for Sports, we can offer our customers unbeatable product selection and unbeatable discounts year-round.

The Whistler Village Sports Group has served the Whistler and Squamish regions with expert service and quality sports equipment since 1980. Having grown to encompass six stores, the humble roots of those early years live on in our stores. Whistler Village Sports Group, and Excess Ski & Sports within it, continues to thrive because of that genuine, local customer service quality. When it comes to gearing up for a spectacular mountain adventure at Whistler, you can’t find it anywhere else.
