If you practically live on the slopes every winter, you probably have all the fancy gear, jackets, wool ski socks and snowsuits you need. But if you only occasionally go skiing or snowboarding, you know it’s beyone painful to pay retail price for all the specialized outerwear, base layers and other things you need to stay warm and dry for just a few days of wintery fun.
There’s good news: A number of online retailers carry discounted or past-season winter and snow sports gear at lower cost, or they regularly offer accessible new lines at prices that don’t hurt as much. You could patiently wait for sales at other retailers or haunt your local secondhand store every spring, but these sites exist solely for the purpose of bringing you savings on cold weather outdoor gear every day.
