Here at the Mountain Shop we understand how important it is for families to play together; we also realize how much kids grow from year to year and how those growth spurts affect a family’s budget. That’s why we created our “Kid’s Ski Trade-In Program”. We encourage you to purchase a kid’s package from us, new or used, and trade it in for credit toward your next kid’s package.
NEW SKI PACKAGES
Purchase a new set of kid’s boots, skis and bindings from our shop and trade them in whenever your skier outgrows them. We will give you credit toward your next purchase of new or used kid’s skis, bindings and boots.
USED SKI PACKAGES
Not ready to buy new? Check out our inventory of used kid’s equipment and purchase a pair of used kid’s skis with safety certified bindings for $100, and kid’s boots for just $50. That’s it, $150 for a new-to-you ski package. When your young skier outgrows them, trade them in for credit toward another new or used package.
• Skis (with attached bindings) purchased from the Mountain Shop will receive a $60 credit.
• Boots purchased from the Mountain Shop will receive a $35 credit.
• Available IN STORE ONLY. Online sales of used ski equipment is not possible due to the fast turnover involved. To take advantage of our kid’s ski trade-in program, please visit our physical location at 1510 NE 37th Avenue Portland, OR.
• All trade-in skis and boots must be in good condition and bindings must still be indemnified. Our staff has the final say on all trade-ins.
• Kid’s equipment is determined by size, not by age. Generally speaking kid’s skis are size 140cm and smaller, and boots are size 25 (approx. US Men’s 7) and smaller.
• Kid’s equipment is limited to items in-stock and on-hand only. Used equipment inventory fluctuates based on items being traded-in. The best time to take advantage of our program is when used equipment is highest, from mid-November through the holidays.
• Kid’s ski packages do not include poles. Typically beginning skiers do not need poles and they can actually complicate and confuse younger skiers. The lack of poles will allow your young skier to focus on basic turning techniques and control. Poles may be appropriate for more advanced skiers, however, and together with our trained staff you can decide when your youngster needs poles.
