If you’re looking for new equipment to use on the slopes this winter, it may be available at a steep discount during Sugar Bowl Resort’s annual Labor Day gear sale. The event takes place in the Truckee High School parking lot, Aug. 31 to Sept. 2.
Top name-brand ski and snowboard equipment – jackets, pants, gloves, under layers, helmets and, of course, skis and snowboards – will be available at 50 to 65 percent off last year’s regular retail prices. Brands include Arc’Teryx, Armada, Burton, Helly Hansen, K2, Patagonia and Volkl.
The sale runs from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day. Truckee High School is at 11725 Donner Pass Road.
Passes for the 2013-14 season at Sugar Bowl and Royal Gorge Cross Country Ski Resort also will be on sale.
