At Outpost Sunsport, our Junior Trade-in Program helps minimize the expensive struggles parents face by buying new equipment for their kids to go skiing or snowboarding almost every year. The way the program works is you buy new equipment for your kids at Outpost. Then, if they outgrow the equipment in the next year or two, you can bring it back and trade it in for new equipment that fits their kids. Our team of professionals will resize your kids to make sure they get the correct-fitting equipment that works for their technique and type of skiing or snowboarding.
With the trade-in, you also get credit that can be used to purchase your new equipment. If the old equipment is one year old and originally purchased from Outpost, you get 50% credit of the original purchase price on the old equipment towards new equipment. If it’s two years old, you get 40% credit of the original purchase price.
Parents are able to trade in boots, skis, and snowboards. The trade-ins only apply to new Outpost equipment – not our swap items – and are only good for two years after the original purchase time. You also don’t need to change all the equipment at once, if your kid outgrew their boots but not their skis, you only need to trade in the boots. Our program also only applies to kids through 12-years-old, so it’s better to start the program at a younger age so you can save more money through the years.
Please note that trade-ins only apply to our new equipment, because we believe that newer equipment is safer for children. It’s important to stay up-to-date on the latest gear because as the technology of skis, snowboards, and boots changes, their level of safety, comfortability, and performance goes up. Specifically, newer boots are always the warmest and most comfortable because they haven’t been worn yet. When the kids are happy and warm on the slopes, the parents are happier, and everyone can have a fun day.
We have this program to help kids learn more about their equipment and how it should fit properly, which helps them become better – and happier – skiers and boarders! They are the future of winter sports, and we want to help provide the best experience possible for them to thrive.
