The sun is beaming, the grass is turning from a green to a crispy yellow, and we're thinking about skiing. To be honest, as a ski company we're always thinking about skiing- but now is the time you should start thinking about skiing as well. 

1) Early bird gets the ski pass discount! If you're a resort skier, and especially if you're looking at passes that service multiple mountains, now is the time to look (and buy) those early-bird specials. Many have already gone up, so act fast! 

2) There's no time like the present to get into skiing shape. Wether you're cross-training or just out having fun, you're probably getting into shape for skiing. Being a little more intentional in your activities will only pay off during ski season! Looking for cross-training tips? Check out this article.  Looking for more direct ways to start training?

3) Planning a ski trip ahead of time gives you something to look forward to. If your ski plans were derailed by COVID over the past year, you may be itching to explore more resorts. Now is a great time to book plane tickets, hotels, and adventures for the winter. We suggest (now more than ever) travel insurance and staying up-to-date with covid precautions in the areas you're interested in visiting.

4) Ordering Custom Skis takes some time. Our lead time for Custom skis is generally about 4 weeks, so now is a great time to start your ski-buying process. This is especially true if you are looking for a custom graphic, since deciding what you want on your skis can be the longest part of the process.
