While it's not quite time to get back on the mountain, summer is great for some snow-related things. Stop pining away at the closed door of your gear closet. This time of the year is ideal for taking inventory of your gear, making a list of what you need, and upgrading your equipment in preparation for the upcoming ski season. If you're going to buy new winter gear, take advantage of summer time discounts, sales, and clearances. UtahSkis’ annual blowout sale is the perfect opportunity to stock up on what you might need — or invest in that new piece of gear you've been drooling over.
