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