Get Prepped for an Action-Packed Snow Season

  (October 24, 2011)

Seattle, Wa (PRWEB) October 24, 2011

REI (Recreational Equipment, Inc.), a national retailer providing quality outdoor gear and clothing, announces its Winter Gear Guide, an online, one-stop, winter resource featuring top picks for winter gear and apparel, an intro into rocker technology, an updated mobile snow report application for smartphone users, and great ideas for winter family fun.

Through online "expert advice" columns and videos, REI's experts teach adventurers how to wax current gear, how to choose new gear, and explain rocker technology, an innovation incorporated into most new skis and snowboards to help enhance overall maneuverability and improve flotation in powder.

Stay up-to-date on weather and snow conditions for up to a dozen snow resorts this season with REIs free Snow Report App for iPhone and Android users. Once downloaded, this smartphone application lets users check snow conditions, forecasts and trail maps for their favorite hills or resorts.

Prepare for a great season by fine-tuning current gear. REI offers full-service snow shops to help ensure skis and snowboards are well-maintained and tuned to perform at their best. REIs fully certified and highly trained experts can assist with anything from inspections to tuning or waxing to major base repair/edge-replacement.

Upgrade kids ski gear. Through the Junior Snowsports Trade-in Program, REI members can bring in gently used kids or junior ski and snowboard gear (originally purchased at REI) and trade them in for 20 percent off the purchase of new kids or junior snow sports gear.
