Not only do we stock great gear, we repair all types of bikes, and completely tune up ski’s and boards.
For us, it’s about more than just the gear; it’s how the gear fits and works for you so you get the most comfort, performance and enjoyment out of your gear every time you use it. On the trail or on the snow, we work hard to make sure you have the right stuff for you and what you do.

At Skookum, we work and play where we live. We believe in our communities and in contributing to their lifestyle and culture; when we’re not at work, chances are you’ll find one of us volunteering at or organizing a local event. Bike races, ski races, movie nights, triathlons. We are proud financial and volunteer supporters of many local, non-profit organizations including the Larch Hills Junior Ski Team, Shuswap Cycling Club and Shuswap Trail Alliance.
Arc’teryx Incendo Hoody
A minimalist jacket with a highly functional hood, the Incendo is created for cycling, mountain training and running in marginal weather. Made from hyperlight Lumin™ fabric, the Incendo resists wind and water with a level of air permeability that aids evaporative cooling. A DWR treatment elevates water resistance, and mesh underarm panels provide ventilation. Arc’teryx Composite Mapping technology strategically places the mesh and Lumin™ fabrics to provide the most effective balance of protection and climate management.
Arc’teryx Procline FL Pants
Specifically designed to meet the varied demands of ski alpinism, the Procline FL Pants provide performance and freedom for rigorous ascents and technical descents. The Burly™ Double Weave softshell is rugged and weather resistant, but still delivers the performance stretch and air permeability necessary for comfort on steep, technical climbs. The Arc’teryx Trim fit employs a straight leg that minimizes bulk for a clear line of sight to the feet. The fit also keeps the material close to the body to help maximize moisture transfer while leaving room for light thermal layering. Aggressive articulation is built in, a requirement particularly necessary on challenging ascents and steep ski descents, and includes a stretch gusset made from highly breathable Fortius 1.0 softshell for next level comfort and freedom.
Arc’teryx Sawatch Pants
The Sawatch Pant is a backcountry focused softshell pant delivering thermal regulation, performance stretch and weather protection. Features are purpose driven, and provide optimal performance without adding unnecessary weight.
Selected due to its ability to provide comfort during varied levels of output, the midweight Arc’teryx Trusaro™ softshell material is a hardwearing, air permeable, snow shedding nylon/polyester blend enhanced with 10% elastane for a high level of stretch. Keprotec™ at the instep gives additional protection against abrasion and edge cuts, and the burly 100D Cordura® PowderCuff™ has an intelligently designed quick release system making it easy to operate, even with gloves on.
Arc’teryx Procline Beanie
A warm, windproof beanie thoughtfully designed for the demands of climbing and ski alpinism, the Procline is also versatile enough for a range of winter mountain sports. The warm P50k WINDSTOPPER® fleece resists rain and snow and shuts out the wind, and Vistrasari™ side panels are air permeable to prevent overheating and speed moisture transfer. Smart features include sound permeable side panels, slots for sunglass arms, a ponytail pass through and a streamlined fit that layers easily under a helmet.
Arc’teryx Procline Comp Jacket
Ski alpinism demands a versatility of performance characteristics. During intense, technical ascents, the benefits of wearing softshell cannot be overrated. But challenging ski descents require wind and weather protection. The Procline Comp Jacket uses Arc’teryx Composite Mapping to combine weatherproof, breathable GORE® Fabric Technology for zonal waterproof protection in areas most exposed to the cooling effects of moisture with Fortius™ 1.0 softshell material where heat transfer and stretch are required. The result is a composite that means ski alpinists can move quickly, conserve energy and economize on weight.
Arc’teryx Beta LT Jacket (Men’s)
The most packable and supple jacket in the Arc’teryx Essentials collection; constructed using GORE-TEX® with Paclite technology in the main body, and reinforced with GORE-TEX® with 3L tricot technology in high wear areas.
A highly versatile GORE-TEX® shell that effectively combines lightweight packability with emergency weather protection. Body mapped to put the right material in the right place, GORE-TEX® fabric with Paclite technology is used in the main body to minimize weight and increase packability. Key wear areas utilize 3L GORE-TEX® with tricot technology to boost durability. The DropHood™ pulls snug for increased visibility; WaterTight™ zippers minimize material use and create a streamlined profile.
MAPPING FOR DURABILITY
High wear areas are reinforced with hardwearing textiles at abrasion points and high stress areas. The Beta LT Hybrid Jacket puts N40p GORE-TEX® 3L with tricot technology at the shoulders and under the arms, areas particularly vulnerable to wear from pack straps.
MAPPING TO REDUCE WEIGHT
N40r GORE-TEX® fabric with Paclite product technology weighs a mere 3.4 oz/yd2 (114g/m2). Used in the jacket body to shave grams without sacrificing weather protection, this waterproof/breathable, incredibly light nylon fabric utilizes a mini ripstop construction for increased tear strength.
DESIGNED FOR FREEDOM
Anatomical shaping and ergonomic patterning combine for fit, comfort and maximum mobility. Gussets under the arms to allow the arm to flex without the sleeve riding up, and the cleverly designed DropHood™ cinches securely to move with the head, increasing freedom and peripheral visibility. This attention to freedom of movement is a focal point of the Arc’teryx commitment to highly functional design.
