NOS Skis, Where to find them?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
At the end of each season, all the unsold skis that don't find good homes...where do they go? Yes, Closeout sales, but then what?

Does anyone have a good source for 2 yr., 3yr., 5yr. or even older NEW skis just waiting for an adoption to go through????

They MUST go somewhere........

Well, yes, ebay is fine for the stray pair or two that are private party sales. But I'm talking about what the Ski reps, Large distributors or even big Ski shops do with bigger quantities of unused leftovers....

Large Distributors > Reps > Ski shops > Ebay

There are some shops with a big ebay presence that have a fairly large NOS inventory. It is mosly one or two years old, though. You rarely see old-old new old stock. I'd suspect people give up and trash them. I don't think you are going to find any brand new K2 712's.

I would say most retailers, internet and brick and mortar, now use ebay to get rid of merchandise.

A few years ago towards the end of the season we drove along the access road (Killington) methodically going into each shop and asking "Do you have any good deals on skis you want to get rid of?" We found a couple of lightly used demos we almost bought, but what really sticks in my mind is the shop that said "Nah, I sold everything on the internet a month ago." Mind you, the shop and the hill were still open!
