We hope this never happens to you, but here at SportsProtective we’ve all been guilty and paid the fine. We’re talking about the ski shop at the resort.
The crime - “I forgot my insert missing gear here
Here’s how to not get caught – Plan ahead, choose the right equipment for your type of skiing and ability, then purchase it at competitive prices so you don’t over spend. Start with our Protective Gear Guides to determine what you really need. A helmet is obvious, many mountains are now requiring ski helmets. But what about tailbone protection or knee pads? Are you into, or getting into ski racing? We have protective gear specifically for ski racers.
Look around. We think you'll find articles of interest. Then gear up and go skiing! You’ll want to get in as many runs as you can before it’s time to spend some of your extra cash at the biergarten.
What type of skiing do you do? Freestyle in the park? Are you running chutes off the piste? Jumping off a helicopter? Just getting started on the bunny slopes? Something in between (like most people)? We’re here to help outfit you with the best gear to keep you safe on the mountain. Everything from low tech pads to high tech helmets, goggles and armor.
Are you a novice or intermediate skier? An expert searching for black diamonds? A racer ready to hit some gates? We’ve handpicked product collections based on ability level so you don’t have to slog through hundreds of products that aren’t right for you. That’s part of being a trusted outfitter.
Without question, a high quality ski helmet should be the first piece of ski safety equipment you purchase.
