Pop up snow sales by schools and private groups happen regularly leading up to the snow season. Over the years we've found some of these to be terrific to pick up some snow clothes or to purchase some equipment. The clothes and equipment can come in retail brand new, ex demo, last years stock, used, ex rental or second hand.
In terms of Snow Gear or Equipment each sale will vary but we've found these to have ski's, snowboards, bindings, poles, toboggans, helmets and various other. And regarding Snow Clothes we've found the general snow gear of snow pants, boots, socks, gloves, snow jackets, thermals and various others. But please make sure you checkout the latest details or flyers on each sale as they may have full details of snow stock available.
