Helm of Sun Valley has been serving skiers and snowboarders in the 
San Jose and Capitola areas for almost 40 years. With both of our stores still family owned and operated, we offer a professional and relaxed buying experience. Whether you are new to snow-sports or grew up on skis, our knowledgeable staff of like-minded enthusiasts will take good care to find you the best gear, proper fit, and prepare you for fun! 

Massive selection - plus boot fitting, ski and snowboard tuning and the area's best selection of top brand name rentals!


We are as committed to snow-sports as we are to the brands we carry. With over 10 ski equipment lines, over 10 snowboard gear brands, and more than 30 clothing and accessory lines represented, we are very proud of our product depth and selection! Both Helm locations offer 
full-service specialized tuning shops with state of the art tuning and repair machinery as well as a complete rental department with up-to-date and, often brand new, rental equipment for the entire family.
