Q: Do I need an appointment to come into the store?
A: Nope! We are limiting customers in the store according to our local Covid-19 guidelines. So all you need to do is wear a mask and knock when you get here. If we reach capacity we ask you that you wait outside until we are able to safely let you in.
Q: Do you offer curbside pick-up?
A: Most definitely! Just order ahead of time (via our website or phone) and we’ll notify you when it’s ready to be picked up. Just give us a call at (303) 271-9382 when you’re outside our store and we’ll bring it out for you.
Q: What are the impacts of Covid-19 on your item availability?
A: Like many small businesses we have felt the impacts of Covid-19. A lot of this has affected production from our dealers which means sometimes items (especially those in high-demand) will have limited stock or be sold out early in the season. We appreciate your patience and understanding as these situations come up and are doing our best to keep our doors open and our customers geared up!
Q: Can I bring my dog in?
A: Our shop welcomes well behaved K9 companions!
Q: How do I purchase a gift card?
A: You can either call us, purchase in store, or through our website under the 'Accessories' tab.
Q: Do you price match other stores?
A: We are happy to try to match prices for you. We only attempt to price match items (from USA based companies) of the same model year that are in stock in the same size and color. If you would like to inquire about price matching, please have the website/store contact information, which you are wanting us to price match, readily available. Feel free to email us price matching questions at [email protected].
Q: Why is Bentgate so awesome?
A: Because of customers like you! And our dedicated and knowledgeable staff that has a commitment not only to getting you the best gear but also getting after it themselves!
Q: Do I need an appointment to get my boots fit?
A: Yes! You need an appointment to do pretty much anything with ski or snowboard boots - even try them on. This is due to the highly personal nature of bootfitting and our commitment to keeping our staff and customers safe. You can schedule one here to get set up with one of our many awesome bootfitters. Reservations are not available for same day appointments.
Q: Can I bring someone with me to my bootfitting appointment?
A: Bootfitting appointments are for a single customer only. To comply with current Covid-19 regulations, we ask that you come to your boot fitting appointment alone. Couples will need to schedule 2 appointment slots if you want to be fit together. Please contact us before your appointment for any further questions or concerns.
