How tmc & you started: 1999 I got my first twin tips from TMC the Dynistar Concepts. This ski changed my life and so did the shop. From that moment on, I always wanted to look like a skier and TMC has always had the latest and greatest in ski gear. As time went on the shop grew into a home and a place to meet up with friends before and after riding.
Yosuke later started a coaching program, giving many of us a way to keep riding and put food on our tables.
Nowadays when I come home the shop is on the top of my list for places to stop by and catch up with friends that over time have become family. The vibs are true, the matrix is real and the shops intentions are as or more core than any other in this town.
Thank you to the Hamazaki family for years of support to many of us . We love you and skiing needs you
