While it’s true that summer-like weather seems to be sticking around Vancouver for a little bit longer this month, September also sets in motion visions of shorter days, snow-covered slopes, and the return of ski and snowboard season.
And if you’re looking to save some money while scoring some new gear at the same time, an event at UBC this month is the place to be.
Known as the Locals Pro Sale, the annual event takes place September 20 and 21, from 9 am to 6pm, and offers new and used gear at a discount of between 60 and 95% off the retail price.
All types of gear will be on offer, from hundreds of brands, including skis, boards, bindings, goggles, boots, poles, hoodies, beanies, backpacks, avalanche gear, gloves, and electronics.
In addition, the annual, free, kid-friendly event gives attendees the chance to interact and celebrate with brands, athletes, and thelocal community.
So if you’re looking to upgrade to your gear or winter wardrobe (or both), there’s “snow” time like this month in which to do so.
When: September 20 and 21
Time: 9 am to 6 pm
Where: 2140 Westbrook Mall, UBC, Vancouver
