Potter Brothers is your specialty ski and snowboard shop entering its 70th year in business this winter. Family owned and operated since 1945, Potter Brothers began as a small sporting goods store in uptown Kingston NY and was surrounded by several other stores of it’s kind. To survive, brothers Jack and Bud Potter focused on offering personalized service to their customers and took the time to get to know them. As business grew, they expanded to Poughkeepsie and Glenham and began offering additional products and services.
Beginning in 1967, Potter Brothers began to focus its efforts on the winter sports market. At this time, 2nd generation cousins John and Dan Potter took the reins and continued to deliver the same specialized service their loyal customers began to expect. Expansion continued and Potter Brothers began operating a ski shop located at Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort in Hancock, MA.
In 1995, Potter Brothers looked to become a year-round business and began offering outdoor patio furniture in the Summer months. During this time, 3rd generation cousins Jake and Kyle Potter entered the business and enjoyed several years working under the watchful eyes of their fathers. In 2005, Potter Brothers launched its online business and in 2011 expanded to Vermont at Bromley Mountain and in 2013 opened 2 news shops at Killington Resort.
Today, Potter Brothers operates 7 ski and snowboard shops spread over 3 states and it’s focus to offer the most personalized specialty service remains the same today as it did in 1945. Our entire staff welcomes you to visit one of our locations and experience the difference a family-owned business can make.
