The Benefits of Shopping for Your Gear In-Store

In today's world, shopping online has become the norm. Some people gravitate toward the ease of browsing through online stores and making their purchases without ever having to leave their homes. Although online shopping may be the easy route, are you really finding the perfect product and apparel? This is especially important for those looking to explore the outdoors. Whether you're upgrading to a new pair of skis, searching for the perfect snowboard boot, in the market for a bike, or looking for the ideal accessories and apparel for your mountain adventure, shopping in-store with knowledgeable experts is the way to go.  

From expert advice to premium in-store programs including our technology-driven boot fitting, tune and wax services, gear value and trade-in programs, skip the online scrolling and drop into a store for the best gear experience.

Ability to Try Before You Buy  

One of the biggest advantages of shopping in-store is that you can try out the equipment before purchasing it. For outdoor enthusiasts, this is particularly important as you want to make sure that the equipment that you're buying is right for you. From skis to snowboards, poles, bindings and boots, you want to make sure that everything fits comfortably and provides enough support. By trying on your gear in-store, you’ll get a better idea of how it feels and whether it’s suitable for your needs.
