Great Deals for Ski Season!

It’s winter, and I am excited to get on the slopes on the regular.  But, it is an expensive sport, especially for a family.  Here are a few tips:


  1. For growing kids, look for used ski clothing. Whoever outgrew it probably only wore it for a couple of seasons at most.  Same for your kiddo, so why commit to expensive new stuff.  I’m a Winter Park gal and LOVE the Winter Park Trading Company.
  2. For grown-ups, check out Steep and Cheap. Great brand name clothing and gear.  Camping stuff, too.  If you are into that.
  3. For lift tickets try Liftopia. It doesn’t always have what you want and when, but if you shop in advance, you could knock some $$ off a one or two day pass.
  4. Buddy up! Ikon pass holders don’t rebuff your Epic friends!  Plan ahead to ski together using each other’s buddy days.  Variety, friends, and deals – what could be better?
  5. Rent, rent, rent! If you are not a regular on the mountain but want to see if the family will like it, you can rent clothes and skis/boards for a reasonable price all season.  Last year I left all my outerwear at home (rookie mistake!) and was saved by the good people at Epic Mountain Sports in Winter Park.


See you on the slopes!
