30 Sep Update Your Ski Equipment
It’s that opportunity of year again. You know the right time: it’s warming up outside, spring is in motion, and you’re feeling sad that ski season is coming to a close. You might currently be nostalgic about the beauty of a crisp January morning with fresh powder and blue skies (okay, yeah, take us back!!!!), the sunshine almost blinding you with its happiness.
Everyone knows this, but if you’re looking to save a buck, paying for new gear at the opening of the season isn’t the way to go. At the end of the season, you can upgrade from the gear you currently have and get discounted prices because stores will be getting rid of older inventory to make room for the new arrivals for the next season.
If it’s too picked over and you’re not able to find the gear you’d like, take into account hitting up a ski swap at the beginning of next season. This is a good tactic to explore tons of used gear at markdown prices, and sell your old gear also, too. Additionally, it’s a good place to go if you’re trying to outfit the whole family with ski gear (buying new for bunches of people can add up fast!).
And p.s.: When you’re planning a last hurrah ski trip to the slopes this season, invite all your buddies and reserve a coach! And when you put the skis and poles away at the end of the season, remember we’re here for whatever summer sport is coming next on your schedule.
