What began as a stack of skis in Gary Key’s garage in Arlington, Texas and have grown to be one of the premier pro shops in America. In 1977, The Slalom Shop moved its ski shop to an 800 square foot building where they would quickly outgrow and move to our first permanent location on Pioneer Parkway. This location is where Darrell Wilson (now owner of Slalom Shop) got his start selling skis by Obrien, Jobe, Kidder, and the famous corduroy OP shorts and apparel. It was here that Gavan Hunt (National VP of Sales for Cobalt Boats), was hired to teach wind surfing lessons, and the whole Slalom Shop crew would participate in ski shows. When Darrell purchased the Slalom Shop in 1994, he opened another location in Lewisville TX where we now house our 25,000 square foot showroom and amazing Pro Shop.
