The Valleywood Story

Valleywood Ski and Snowboard Shop has been a family owned and operated business for the last 25 years.  Our patriarch, Fred Freudenschuss began in the industry back in 1957 starting the first ski shop in Dayton at the downtown site of the Rikes department store. Following that venture, Fred opened the Sugarcreek Ski Shop at the Sugarcreek Ski Hills in Bellbrook, Ohio. Upon the closing of the ski hills, the family opened the Valleywood Ski Shop.  He has passed his knowledge and passion for the sport on to his son and loyal employees. The shop is now currently operated by his son Yuri and family.

At Valleywood, it’s never been about the gear (although it is extremely cool). Or  even conquering the mountain. Our focus is on our customers. Getting you in exactly the right equipment and clothing is what we do. And it is what we do best. Our small but well trained and experienced staff takes pride in listening to your needs and properly matching you to the perfect gear or clothing.

Our expertise ranges from recreation and beginning skiing & snowboarding to expert level riding. So no matter what level you are at we have the knowledge to help you. We invite you to enjoy the wonders that winter sports bring to us!

At Valleywood you will find the best in all of the major brands of ski & snowboard equipment. We also carry an extensive ski & snowboard clothing line. You can find everything you need for the season right here at Valleywood. Stay warm and look hot!
