The Boarding House and Bliss has been around since 1995, where it all began in a cozy little shop on Kingsway Ave. It wasn’t too long before we outgrew the mini BH and made our home in a new location on Dunmore Road. We have grown again and now made a new move to Strachan Road, and are located next to Cyclepath across from Sobeys and Walmart!
At the Boarding House we have been dedicated to snowboarding for more than 20 years, traveling, riding and learning. From factory tours to on snow demos, we know the equipment — from what it is made of, to how it rides. We don’t know anything about skis, nor do we profess to. We are not skiers so we don’t sell them. We are focused on snowboarding. Through team testing and sponsors our team gets to know the products. We have an extensive feedback program, through we are able to learn about equipment both on and off the snow. We are constantly searching for new brands, new riders and new places to ride. So, whether you are a seasoned veteran of winter or a bright-eyed Newbie, our no pressure environment and highly knowledgeable team will get you what you need to protect you from the elements.
The Boarding House has been supporting the skateboard scene here in Medicine Hat since day one. We have watched the sport grow and evolve since the 80′s, from the days of old school, to the newest styles out there. We strive to do all that we can for the skateboard community by promoting the sport and local riders. With contests such as Beat The Heat, The DC Nationals, Park Jam and the Mad Dash tour we help to put Medicine Hat on the map.
