Founded in 1876, the Appalachian Mountain Club is America's oldest conservation and recreation organization. We promote the protection, enjoyment, and wise use of the mountains, rivers, and trails of the Appalachian region. We fulfill our mission through the three interconnecting pillars of the AMC: conservation, education, and recreation.

The Ski Rack

Skirack first opened its doors in 1969 just a few blocks from its present location at the corner of Main and Pine streets in downtown Burlington, Vermont. Over the years, we have undergone many changes and all with one goal in mind - to provide the finest outdoor goods and services.

For a few years, we operated two stores on lower Main street. Skirack was our home for all things self propelled - bikes, cross country skis, snowshoes, inline skates, running shoes, kayaks, and the clothing and accessories for it all. The Downhill Edge housed our gravity division - downhill skis and snowboards. Now its all under one roof.

We are here to help you enjoy the sports we enjoy. If there is anything we can do to help, please feel free to contact us.

Canoe Imports

Stunning panoramas await you at our North Beach Outpost! The vistas from our beautiful, sandy beach are dominated by pine-covered islands and the towering Adirondack Mountains.

Paddle north along the shoreline and find yourself at the base of Lone Rock, a point where dramatic cliffs rise out of the crystal, clear water, or paddle south and explore the Burlington Waterfront.

Rent a canoe, stand up paddleboard, or a recreational, touring or tandem kayak, by the hour, 1/2 day or full day at North Beach. Experience lake Champlain in a whole new way with Burlington stand up paddle boarding. Boats are available on a first come, first served basis.
