  • Best Purchase Used This Season?

    What did you buy during this last year that was surprisingly good/useful during this years ski season?

    My best buy was a pair of Scott goggles that I picked up cheap-cheap last year on Level 9 that has a 2 speed fan. These things rock! I never had a fogging problem this year, not once.

    I'm trying to figure out how to tape a small pc fan onto my prescription glasses to wear this summer. I'll probably have to use some of that white bandage tape to get it to stick.

    I bought two right KTPs in Greco's clear out sale for $100. I thought they would be too much board for me, but they have ended up becoming my go to boards this season. Great deal!

    Just these, nothing else !

          Lift tickets. Regardless of gear I can't enjoy ski boarding if I'm not ski boarding! Just being able to purchase tickets can be a luxury when your bigger mountains hit 95$ a day!

              I wasn't sure if that meant the item you bought was used. Or best purchased you used this season.

                This season, like every season, I spent a small fortune on new gear. My latest best buy has been the pair of Salomon boots listed in my signature. They are so comfy and have worked great the two times that I have worn them.

                    I'll second Shortydude's Scott goggles with the fan. We both picked up a pair this year, and they were the answer to our fogging frustrations!

                      Cabin Max backpack. Airline carry on legal and takes my boots, just! Inexpensive and feature rich. Now I am sure the airline can't lose my boots etc.
                      Crossbow (go to dream board)
                      Most everything else over time.

                            Head Cubes.

                            Still not as comfortable as my snowboard boots are, but the best boot I've tried so far.
