How to Rent or Purchase Ski & Snowboard Equipment


this is John Munson from Sugar Bowl
resort and Royal gorge cross country and we’ve been with the Better Business
Bureau since 2013 in today’s pro tip is about buying ski gear some tips on ski
gear earlier skier or snowboarder historically you can get the best deals
on your ski gear at the end of the ski season however you might not have as
robust selection because shops have sold out of a lot of gear but if you’re
willing to wait that might be the best time to get the best price on ski gear
another time to oddly enough is right in the middle of the summer a lot of ski
resorts in a lot of ski shops will do sales over Labor Day Memorial Day fourth
of July I put out that tent there is a lot of last season’s cheer before next
season’s here comes in so you can find a lot of great deals on ski gear
throughout the season for those first timers and beginners and newbies to the
sport don’t be shy about buying used gear either you can go to a thrift
rental demo types shop and find some great gear that’s been used slightly and
obviously get a better deal on it there too rental gear is a great way to go you can
get into a rental program come up get a good deal on a lift ticket get out
there take a lesson get a good rental package see if you like the sport and
you can can continue to rent and some shops have great demo programs to where
you can purchase a rental program for the entire season use it at your discretion use it as many
times as you need not what you can really try out the sport and see how
much you like and it’s it’s something you wanna pursue at which time you can
go into the shops look for the gear that’s right for you be it fat power
boards skinny race skis snowboards telemarketing whatever you’re into you
can try and and i think what I like about here at sugar bowl is we
have a try before you buy program demo fleet so you can come into the shop and
say wow those skis look really good to me I’d like to try them out we’ll let you
take them out on the hill give it a go come back in and if it’s what you like you know
you’re gonna buy with confidence
