seasonality when are prices the lowest ?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

 Are there any charts out in ski land that would show seasonality of ski equipment prices ?

 

 Any ideas on the best month or date to get the best price on average for buying new or used skis ?

 

 The month & date on average for largest selection of used skis wouls also be interesting to know.

 

 Maybe it changes every year & is based on when x amount of lift capacity shuts down or the first Monday after Easter ?

^^^^^ He's a moron. Everyone knows there's a 0.675 Pearson Correlation of price in colonial Schillings with excess lift capacity in kilograms after May 17th, once you correct for top fall parka color, and divide by Planck's Constant. This produces an optimal buy date of 6:46 p.m. June 17. Well, OK, except for years when the moon is in the fifth phase. We're still working on that one.

 Any ideas on the best month or date to get the best price on average for buying new or used skis ? See above, the earlier you decide, the better the selection, the later, the lower the price it is a matter of finding the balance.

 

 The month & date on average for largest selection of used skis wouls also be interesting to know. We have a HUUUGE consignment sale over Labor Day weekend, usually 5-600 pr.

 

 Maybe it changes every year & is based on when x amount of lift capacity shuts down or the first Monday after Easter ? Yes and no.

I will speak from the Start Haus perspective above. Right now we have stuff marked down in the store lower than we can advertise if you are looking for something in particular..PM me.

The big sales (40% to 60% off) in the shops at Sun peaks started yesterday and coincides with B.C. school kids spring break.

Fall ski swaps can yield even better prices.

Utilizing WAGNER methodolgy (Wild Ass Guess, Not Easily Referenced), there is a positive statistical correlation between the stated variables and the resulting pricing strategies utlized by merchants, within an acceptable margin of variation.

 

So it's true.
