Gearchase.com

Gotta check out this site, www.gearchase.com:

Paying retail price for something your friend buys a month later for 50% off is just not fun. The fact is, these online retailers have only limited room for new inventory. When the current season is over it’s got to go to make room for the new gear. That’s when we start seeing discounts, sales, and end of season clearance events. There are just too many stores online that have sales and discounts to search them all. We found a great site for sifting through 100’s of online retailers and finding the best deals. GearChase.com searches the inventory of all the major online outdoor stores like Backcountry.com and REI.com and brings you a search engine to browse the best deals from all these sites in one spot. We have heard them compared to “GearChase.com is the Kayak.com for Outdoor Gear”. Check out the product page to see the price history of an item to know if you are buying at the lowest price. Just don’t wait too long, these items sell out quickly and soon you’re left with odd sizes and colors.

GearChase.com also list over 50 daily deals from these website on one page, with countdown timers and links to compare prices on eBay and Amazon. GearChase is about to save you a lot of money on buying and searching for amazing deals and sales on outdoor gear.

If you are looking for a super easy way to get the latest pricing on a product, or just want to find a really REALLY good deal on a new pair of ski’s go check out GearChase.com. Be sure to Like them on Facebook for some great post, photos, interviews, and deals on gear.

Some smokin' deals on close outs. Meta site with deals from several retailers. I have seen several different sets of boots running $800 or more that sell for under $200. Problem is they are in weird sizes that don't fit me, Jake or Jarrett, but that is why they are on closeout. Usually men's size 9ish stuff.

Have a look around.

Wolf Creek Opens on Saturday

Wolf Creek is opening:

Wolf Creek is opening this Saturday and Sunday with the Nova and Bonanza Chairlifts operating from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM! After receiving another 4 inches of new snow, the current base is 22 inches with a year-to-date snowfall of 28 inches. Conditions are very early season!

The Ski School will be available for lessons including the Wolf Pup Program. Ski and Snowboard rentals will be available as well as Treasure Sports. Burgers and a limited menu will be served in the Wolf Creek Lodge (upper lodge); as well as drinks from the Pathfinder Bar.

I would love to head there this weekend, but give it one more good storm and I am going to pack the skis up and head up that way. I really don't want to take the trip without Waterfall being open as it is literally my favorite place on earth to ski.

Such good things. Think Snow.
