The folks at Nordic Skater are extremely knowledgeable and have an excellent inventory of all types of Nordic Skiing/skating gear. Living in the Mid Atlantic area where I am, you are lucky to find anybody at any outdoor store that knows anything about cross country skiing, let alone training and roller skis. That is where the Nordic Skater comes in... More

I'm very grateful that I was able to make an appointment when the store was closed, as I was driving from Montreal to make an exchange. Looking forward to try those blades. Thanks!

We ordered the Skike roller skis and were incredibly happy with the quality of the customer service we received. They took 10+ minutes on the phone to explain what we were buying, what we might want to consider, what we should consider with the ski poles, etc., could not be happier. Everything was shipped quickly and they even included a... More

Nordic Skater was very helpful and professional when I purchased roller skis for my high school Nordic Team. They made us feel that our needs were very important to them.

I bought the Isvidda long distance ice skates at Nordic Skater. The price was right, and they arrived quickly. I took them to a trip to Mongolia to go skating on the holy lake of Chuvsgul Nuur. We had a blast - the skates come on and off easily, they hold super nice and tight to any shape boot, the... More

I bought a pair of Skike V07 Fix online. The service was great and informative. I am new to skate skiing, but they were easy to learn. Using these skates is much more fun than running.

I've purchased two complete Nordic ski packages from Nordic Skater (skate and classic) and in both cases I could not be more pleased with the service I received, perfect fitting and helpful expert advice provided. This has been especially so with recommendations given for the type of ski flex most appropriate for the snow conditions I ski on at altitude... More

I ordered by phone, skate skis for my 14 year old. WAsn't sure exactly what I wanted but staff were so helpful. Called a couple different times and always plenty of advice. Sometimes a bit too technical or detailed for me. Ended up with good skis at a good price with some custom things added that I wouldn't have received... More

Nice place, great service, good people. I've wanted some back road rollerblades for quite a while, and finally found a nice pair at Nordic Skater. The Skike V07s work great on the (dry) dirt roads and my dog loves the exercise.

My fiance and I went here before Christmas to get xc skis. The service was great and the employees were extremely knowledgable and friendly. They worked quickly and got what we wanted, even if it was not in the store. I definitely recommend doing business with Nordic Skater. I know that I will continue to give them my business for...
