Ski Season Extended: Reserve Your Ski Equipment Rental Now

Spring has sprung here in Breckenridge. But you might be hard pressed to know it if you looked out the window. Snow is falling and they are predicting of over a foot of fresh snow by the weekend. With good snow forecasts coming up, Breckenridge resort had this to say:

Due to incredible snow conditions, we’re extending the season through April 27!

Breckenridge Ski Resort officials announced today they will extend the resort’s ski season by one additional week, from Monday, April 21 through Sunday, April 27, due to a deep snow pack and terrific conditions that can be expected at Breck’s elevation in the spring. In January, Breck was the snowiest resort in the U.S. and has received more than 28 feet of snow so far this season.

With this in mind, now is a great time to reserve your ski rental equipment and come ski with us! It’s still winter on the summits and with spring conditions on the lower mountain, you’ll have great temperatures at the lodge and great skiing on the way down. At A Racer’s Edge in Breckenridge we have the latest in powder, soft snow and carving skis tuned and ready for you and your family. Reserve online today to have a set of skis waiting for you when you arrive. Avoid the crowds by renting your skis and equipment ahead of time…and get the benefit of our expert boot fitters and ski tuning team.

Don’t forget that we are also having a spring blowout sale with boots up to 30% off, Shred helmets 50% off and all other ski equipment up to 60% off!

Breckenridge Ski Rental Pro Tip | Now is the Time To Shop for Gear

It is officially spring! This might be a problem for some as they didn’t get in enough turns (is it really possible to get enough?) On the other hand, this is a time for deals and planning for your next ski season. It can be a little counter intuitive…looking for ski jackets or a new helmet in March, but similar to buying your holiday gifts out of season, the tail end of the spring skiing season can be a great time to pick up a deal on winter gear, and even try it out for a few days while there is still snow on the slopes and the sun is out.

If you think about it from the perspective of the retailers, they aren’t interested in carrying their stock over the summer and will be looking to move products out the door often with big savings going to you. Look for tent sales and end of season clearance opportunities on new gear as well as demo gear. As you probably know, the manufacturers are always upgrading their products so this year’s merchandise is next year’s ‘old’ goods.

One of the other tips our Breckenridge ski rental crew wanted to pass along, is that now is a great time to rent a pair of demo skis if you haven’t tried them out all season. Getting out on a pair of this year’s Rossignols or Kastles might be a reason to spend another day or two on the slopes before the snow disappears.

At A Racer’s Edge, all of our ski boots are marked down as much as 30%. Last year’s Shred helmets are now 50% off and virtually all merchandise in the store including gloves, glasses and other accessories are up to 50% off…so stop on in for spring ski rentals, discounts on helmets and equipment, and a few last runs while you still can.
