As Celtek has grown to be a worldwide brand providing warm hands and stylish gloves to all types of riders, there are those core shops and people who have been supporting us from the beginning and it wouldn’t be possible to be where we are without them. So in the Dealer Locator we will be able to highlight the core ride shops around the world that help support our brand. They are the people we turn to for advice on their local mountain and area. So this is our way of giving back to them by showing all of you where to shop! These guys are our friends and know whats up!
UNLTD is located up in Banff Canada. The guys in the shop are true snowboarders and you can tell by walking into the store. I mean being up there in Canada means they get a lot of snow, so why not take advantage of it, right? So of course we asked them a few questions to see what makes them so rad! Make sure to stop by their shop if you are ever in town! Pick up some Celtek gear while you’re at it!
How long have you been carrying Celtek?
What is the best selling Celtek Product in your store? (or just your favorite)
Definitely the Bitten Mitten. We sell loads of that thing in every color.
Bitten By A Mitten.
Where are you guys located and how long have you been in business?
We have to shops. The first on is located in Banff and opened it’s doors way back in 95. The second one is the next town over in Canmore and we opened it 5 or 6 years ago. So yeah we’ve been givin’ er for 20 years now!
How many store locations do you have?
Just the two
If you had a shop hall of fame who would be the first inductee?
Oh wow, some legends have put in time throughout the years here. I’d have to pick a group of people for sure. I’ll name a few but there are a lot of beauties from over the years. Amar, Yuta, Matt, Mike, Taylor, Landon, Luke, Maddy and of course the shop owner Dave who’s put his life into making this place what it is now.
Who is the employee of the month, or who should we ask for advice when we walk into the shop?
Honestly everybody on staff rules. We live in the Rockies and everyone at the shop is so passionate about snowboarding. You can ask anyone on staff and they’re all full of first hand information and experience because they live the shred lifestyle and do it every day the possibly can.
Any shop events or contests coming up soon?
Yeah we always throw some super fun season opener parties up at Lake Louise ski area and at The Devil’s Gap bar in Banff here. Everybody get nice and loose and we raise money for a Samaritan’s Purse program called “Turn on the Tap” which helps provide clean drinking water for families in some of the poorest countries in Africa.
What would you consider to be the local mountain to your shop?
Well we’ve got 3 mountains within a half an hour of Banff. Lake Louise, Sunshine Village and Mount Norquay. They all have their positives for sure. We usually just ride wherever the snow fell the deepest the night before or wherever has the funnest park.
Who is your “best” team rider? Why are they the best?
Oooooooo, haha, this is going to get me in trouble. Our team is pretty diverse. We have some really rad park riders that have been winning a bunch of the contests around and we’ve got team riders that are competing on a global stage in big mountain free ride events. I can’t really compare them but the best part about all of our team riders is that they all shred their faces off and just love snowboard and skating so much. We just want people who are perma-stoked up there and smiling from ear to ear, doing what they love.
