Grouse and Cypress opened November 15. If the only thing stopping you from heading up to ski/snowboard our Vancouver resorts is a lack of gear, MEC SnowFest this Saturday, November 22 is for you. SnowFest is the place to find great deals on used snowsports gear. So much so that people (and we mean people who really know how to camp) sleep outside in the cold to be the first through the door at 9am.
How it works: Vancouverites bring in used gear for consignment and MEC sells them at really affordable prices. You’ll find skis, ski boots, snowboards, split-boards and snowboard boots. This years event will feature a DJ, complimentary coffee, cheap gear, and lots of clinics from knowledgeable athletes on stuff like skiing wild, snowshoe technique and snowboard repair.
SnowFest runs from 9am to 2pm Saturday, November 22. The good stuff tends to go fast so if you can’t make it or miss out, you’ll also score good deals on gently used ski gear and used snowboard gear in the Vancouver classifieds
