Shopping Tips For Ski Season

Shopping Tips For Ski Season

Ski season is upon us! It looks like snow is falling early for many of us around the country and that means the slopes will be busy soon. Whether you’re looking to book a place to stay in Park City or just hit the local slopes down the road, if you want to update your gear or ski wardrobe this season you’re going to want to know where to shop. As much as we like fishing around on Google, we thought it might be worth checking out where the big shots of skiing like to shop. They probably know where the good stuff is, right? So we reached out to some of the most popular ski personalities on social media to see where they like to shop.
