Hey all, this is Matt from Colorado Ski Authority. Our visitors have expressed some interest this year in buying their own gear, when that makes sense, how much should they spend, what should they buy if they can't buy everything, etc. We put up a big post in February about all the various costs to ship, rent, fly, or buy, which can be found here: http://www.coloradoskiauthority.com/travel/ski-rentals/rent-fly-buy/
Several people who have late season ski trips planned, both from out of state and in-state, have asked where are the best places in Colorado to go to pick up gear on the cheap. Does anyone here have any suggestions or recommendations? We will provide attribution for your help or talk up your shop if you happen to have one or whatever we can do to be neighborly. We just want to pass on the best info we can.
Thanks for your help.
