When is the Best Time to Shop for New Snow Gear

When is the Best Time to Shop for New Snow Gear

Savvy shoppers hoping to secure some exceptional ski deals will find the best opportunities at the end of the ski season. Typically around February, March, and April, retailers are incentivized to offer cheap snow ski gear in preparation for their new, incoming stock. Also, since sales generally begin to decline around Springtime, you’ll find better deals on seasonal styles that are in limited production or are only available for that specific year. If you love the look of a specific coat, or pair of goggles, or have your eyes on a fresh pair of snow pants, now’s the time to grab these items before they’re gone for good.

3 Steps to Improve Your Skiing Skills All Season Long

If you don’t use it, you lose it. Unless you’re fortunate enough to travel to find snow or have access to a glacier throughout the summer months, it’s easy to lose your edge. Instead of beginning next season with a major skill deficit, our skiing experts recommend routine training and relevant skill building even when you’re miles away from the nearest mountain. Off-season ski training is great for your health, improves motor skills, and will prevent the majority of injuries that may come with a long break between ski seasons.
