If you haven’t heard of it, Junior Trade In, the 26-year old budget-friendly equipment exchange program for kids ages 4-18, will be available during SKI REX. This is a great deal for families with kiddos starting to grow into equipment (without having to spend a ton on continual upgrades or on-hill rentals).
A complete set of used equipment including skis, boots, bindings and a safety binding check is $99.99 for the entire season. Equipment can be returned the following year at the end of the 2014 season and parents can refit their kids into a different set of used equipment for the next season. The net cost per child after the first year is $49.99 per year!
The Junior Trade-In is also available on new equipment starting at $199.99. Equipment returned by March 31 gets a 50 percent discount on next year’s equipment — $99.99/year after the first year!
Junior Trade In is also available for snowboarders with a slightly higher rate for used equipment — $109.99 for a full snowboard setup that includes boots and deck; new gear starts at $199.99.
