Don’t judge this ollie-centric chainlet by its Fall Out Boy–heavy soundtrack and teen-favorite skater brands: For everyone in need of goggles or a mountain-ready parka, Blades dishes up sporty, dependable lines such as Nike and Holden, and its knowledgeable staff will even assemble your snowboard for free. If you need a lift to the mountains, both locations of the shop offer bus trips ($45–$175; sign up at bladesnyc.com) to several resorts, including breakfast and the option to add lift ticket, ski or board rentals, and even a lesson for novices.
