It has often been said that there is opportunity in any economy. If you still have a few dollars in your pocket, there has been no better time to buy snow sport equipment, especially hard goods like snowboards and skis.
Typically, the manufacturers front this equipment to the ski/snowboard shops and hope to get paid by the end of the season. The last thing they want is to get this equipment back. As a rule, sales start during President’s Week and go on through the end of the season. You can expect deep discounts on still large inventories to continue throughout the summer. Unless you are stuck on getting next year’s model, this is the time.
Lakeside has partnered with two such shops because we believe in the way they do business and we shop there too. We recommend Sports LTD, Shoreline Sports, House of Ski, and Heavenly Sports. Also, Ski Butlers provide "room service" to guests at Lakeside Inn.
