Prepping for Ski Season at Snowbowl in Flagstaff!
There’s a dusting of snow on the peaks, the air is getting colder, and opening day at Snowbowl is less than a month away. (November 18th, but who’s counting?)
So what needs to happen before we hit the mountain this winter? Let’s dive in.
Prep Your Gear
While your gear has been sitting in storage all summer, all the moisture that keeps the bottom of your ski or snowboard healthy, is certainly gone. And are the edges as crisp as they were before last season? Before you hit the mountain, make sure to have your board or skis waxed and your ski edges sharpened.
Peace Surplus can prep your board for the season with all of the tuning features below. Please allow 1-2 days at the beginning of the season for us to complete your tune. Call us for details or just bring in your gear for a tune. Tuning is available beginning the first week of November.
Renting vs. Buying Gear
If you’re just beginning as a skier or snowboarder, renting your gear is an affordable place to start. To view rental Prices at Peace, click the link below. Note that you must visit in store to reserve your rentals. You can also rent gear at Snowbowl for a higher price!
If you’re ready to invest of a lifetime of mountain fun, (which we highly encourage), it might be time to buy! Checkout Snow, Mountain, River (SMR) for consignment gear in town.
We have ski boots on sale! If you’re a beginner skier looking to test out some boots, stop in our store to find the right fit. Our retired rental boots are available for an incredible deal.
Not a Skier? We also have kids and adult snowshoes available for purchase.
Learn the Snowbowl Details
We wrote a blog about everything you need to know before heading to Snowbowl. Check it out here. No really, it’s pretty helpful, go read it.
Buying Your Season Pass
The earlier you buy your pass, the more you can save. Checkout Snowbowl’s pricing options below.
Pro Tip: If you have a flexible schedule, or your “weekends” fall in the middle of the week, Snowbowl’s weekday pass is a steal at only $200-$300 for the whole season.
Attention Gear Nerds!
Yes, we’re talking to you, gear nerds! Have you heard of insulated water bladders? They’re made from Osprey, keep you hydrated and keep your water and tubing from freezing up while you’re on the mountain. Check it out below:
Nothing boosts the morale of a mountain day like staying warm! Of course we have ski pants and ski jackets, but there are also a few other items that can take you from tolerating the cold to hardly even feeling it! Visit our Blog “How to Stay Warm This Winter,” to learn more.
