A Sale…and More
Ski Rex is also the ideal time for families to sign up for the Junior Trade Program to choose from the widest selection. The Junior Trade Program allows families to save 50 percent on kids’ new or used skis and snowboards. Families can purchase used gear starting at $99, or new gear for $199, plus $15 for a mandatory binding safety check and then bring it back the following season to trade for larger sizes starting at just $49. The process can be repeated season after season as long as the child can be fitted in youth-sized equipment. Junior Trade is a Colorado tradition and has been making equipment more affordable for young skiers and riders since 1983.
“Junior Trade remains a cornerstone program for many Colorado families so we have nearly doubled our supply of kid-sized equipment in recent years to better meet the growing demand for this affordable and flexible program,” explains Dustin Hunt, director of operations for Epic Mountain Gear. “Parents can opt for new or used equipment based on their budget and preferences while getting a great price on gear for their growing kids,” he added.
New this year, customers can show off their new gear for a chance to win a $200 Epic Mountain Gear gift card by sharing their photos on social media using the hashtag #IGotRexed. Photo opportunities available at all Front Range locations during Ski Rex.

The Guarantee 
All Ski Rex purchases include the Epic Mountain Gear guarantee of complete satisfaction. Ski Rex prices are guaranteed to be the lowest in the nation. If shoppers find a lower price on a sale item anywhere else, Epic Mountain Gear will beat it.
