As the days begin to shorten, the early morning temperatures drop and the crisp winds chill the tips of your ears. Even in the evenings after work or school, there’s a different feeling in the air. Fall is here and before you know it, winter will be in full swing which means one thing - time to hit the mountains! With Big Bear and Snow Summit just a short car ride away and the world class runs at Mammoth within 6 hours, there’s no excuse for you to not score fresh powder this season.

To make your life easier when you get to the slopes, each winter Hansen’s transforms into your local Southern California full service ski and snowboard shop. From ski and snowboard rentals and repairs to the latest gear to our adventure ski school, we have everything to get you prepared for an epic day in the snow.

Snow Gear

Whether you are searching for a fresh look this year or just need some new goggles or boots, the Hansen’s team has you covered! With a knowledgeable and competent staff on hand to help you make the best and most informed purchase, you can rest assured you will be dialed in with top of the line equipment at the best possible price. New snowboards from Burton, Gnu, Lib Tech, and more are already in stock and on the floor and we have to say, Burton’s new boards look insane:

Featured here is Bruton’s Custom Series Snowboard

Men’s and women’s outerwear from Nils, Descente, Obermeyer and others are hung and ready for you to check out sizes! The latest goggles from top brands including Dragon and Smith are in stock as well. If you haven’t checked out the Lumalens on Dragon’s X2 goggles, do yourself a favor and try a pair on. The color optimized, high definition lens blocks out glare and haze while delivering clarity and brightness in even the toughest conditions.

Dragon’s X2 Goggles

New Snowboard Boots from 32, helmets from Smith and gloves from Burton are also now on the floor, so if last years equipment is too small or just isn’t going to make it through another season, head on down to Hansen’s.


Not ready to invest in your own gear yet? Don’t worry about it - rent your skis or snowboard from Hansen’s and avoid the long lines at the mountain. From little groms to adults, the Hansen’s team knows how to get you sized and fitted for the perfect day on the slopes. Want to give it a try before you actually get to the mountain? At Hansen’s, you can!

The Adventure Ski School, located just outside the shop, is a giant conveyor belt that simulates skiing down the mountain. Get a feeling for what it’s like being in the boots and attached to skis or a snowboard without the pressure of everyone watching at the mountain! The soft material you ride on makes falling less of a pain (literally!) and the overall process of learning much more enjoyable.


We get it - accidents happens. Whether you clipped a tree in a back-country run, need your edges sharpened and a fresh wax, or are looking for an adjustment on your bindings, we are here to help. Hansen’s has highly trained technicians with years of experience ready to fix any potential equipment issues, so getting as many runs in as possible is the only thing you have to worry about.
