As one of the retail epicenters for the ski and snowboard industry, Colorado skiers and riders can expect "don't miss" deals this year at the super-sized SKI REX tent sale when it returns to the four Colorado Ski & Golf shops and Boulder Ski Deals stores with hotter than usual deals on ski and snowboard equipment, clothing, and accessories when it kicks off over Labor Day weekend on Sept. 5 and continues through Sept. 20, 2009. The SKI REX team has been purchasing literally tons of excess and unsold inventory from around the U.S. and bringing it into Colorado for one of the biggest versions of this popular sale in years. Major bargains are the norm for skiers and riders on the hunt for last season's equipment models and style at discounts ranging from 30-75 percent off. Thousands of skis, snowboards, boots, bindings, jackets, clothing, and accessories fill the giant tents at all five locations. Fashion-forward and "technophiles" in search of the latest, newest, coolest items for the 2009-10 season can find everything they want with this first look and best prices during the early season. Skiers and riders can also purchase their Epic passes and season passes for Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, and Arapahoe Basin throughout the weekend at all locations.
