Based out of Boulder and could pick up anywhere around the front range. Not opposed to using the mail assuming the shipping cost isn't too crazy as well.

I'm trying to get into skiing but the cost of skis + a pass is quite prohibitive... especially since the gear I'm going to use is less important given that I'll be falling all over the place anyways.

I'm in need of boots, skis, bindings, and poles so if you've got something for a 5"9 guy who weighs 175 lbs and wears a size 9-9.5 shoe please let me know.


Thanks,

Dan

bump? I'm sure there's at least one husband on here whose wife is yelling at him to clear out the garage

Try the Boulder Sports Recycler up in North Boulder.  You might find what you are looking for.  Boots too..

Get on craigslist and check out used gear/consignment shops!

I know it's down south but might be worth it to go check out Gearonimo Sports in Colorado Springs. They literally have thousands of used skis, mild to wild, boots, and many accessories. The staff there will get you set up with what you need as a beginner. Since they are a consignment style store, you can also bring in any old sporting goods, clothing, etc you have and want to sell to try and bring down the price of any gear you might want to buy. If anything, at least check them out online and/or on Facebook. They often have special sales for additional discounts. 

Good luck!
