1. take inventory of your snow sport equipment
Pull all your snow sport equipment out of summer storage and take stock of what you have. Family members should try on last year’s outerwear including ski or snowboard boots. Kids grow quickly so now is the time to either pass it down or trade up!
2. trade up your gear
bought from ski tak last year and now your child has out grown the equipment? Bring it back for ½ the original value credited towards a new pair! We also do trade-ins on equipment not bought from us or are more then one year old
3. take advantage of pre-season sales
Don’t forget Moonlight Sale is coming up Nov. 16th & 17th!
