Conditions and Ratings

Conditions

New - A brand new item that has never been used on the slopes. Manufacturers packaging may be damaged or not included. New items may have been used as display units or are past seasons closeout items. They may have slight cosmetic damage including minor scratches, scuffs, or dust from being stored in a warehouse setting.

Used - All used products have been used in a rental or demo fleet. Please use the rating scale and example images below for a reference of what condition our used skis and snowboards will be in. Used items such as boots, snowboard bindings, poles, or helmets do not have individual condition ratings as they will all show different levels of cosmetic wear and tear. All used items that do not have individual ratings will have signs of use such as scratches, scuffs, scrapes, and wear from normal use. This will not effect the performance of the product. All used items without an individual condition rating will be fully functional unless otherwise specified.
