Graham Lonetto opened Edgewise in 2003 after leaving his position as a World Cup serviceman with the U.S. Ski Team. Graham says, “It was a childhood dream of mine to own and operate a ski service speciality store. We moved to Stowe in 2000, from Park City, Utah, on a bit of a whim just before we got married.” Edgewise began in 2003, when Graham came off the road from traveling with the Team. “We really could not have picked a better place to live and have this business. This area is in the heart of ski racing country.” And, while Edgewise is a race shop, Graham is clear that the doors are open to everyone. “Our goal with Edgewise is to offer true World Cup Ski service to anyone who walks into our store”.
