I am kind of a outdoor clothing junkie and luckily I'm moving to a place where even at my job it sounds like I never have to really wear anything but warm, comfortable and outdoorsy type clothing, so yay! The point is, I have plenty, but really not enough (is it ever enough) of ski specific or maybe enough general stuff for the coldest weather equip/clothes.
Back in North Carolina, I've been to an awesome secondhand store called second gear I think from all the people reselling their Appalachian mountain gear etc and scored a sleeping bag, hammock, and boots one time.
Now, as I research things and want to buy more stuff, I read a lot of people giving out advice about going to a thrift store etc. for ski stuff. So my question is, since I already have a bunch of extra time in Colorado, do you think I can find things like used camping gear (warmer sleeping bags, 4season tents, etc), ski pants, ski jackets, base layers, gloves, mittens, accessories etc at second hand places? And if so WHERE specifically do you recommend as awesome places to actually accomplish this? I will be traveling through aspen, vail, frisco, breck, etc. And maybe even all the way towards Denver.
I would love any advice to stock up on stuff like this since I already will be dropping a lot of money on winterizing my car (whatever that means haha) and buying (hopefully) all additional ski store specific full priced essentials (boots, goggles,helmet, socks)
And most of all, if you don't want to share your secrets to finding this stuff openly, please just private message me and I'll keep your intel safe haha
