Kids looking for ski or snowboard gear to use for the whole season need to act quickly to take advantage of the Junior Trade-in program at the SKI REX tent sales, throughout the Front Range. You can get completely outfitted with skis or snowboard, boots, poles, and bindings for the entire year for $95. Use the gear, and then turn it back in by Sept. 30 of next year to get some money back. You also  can do the Junior Trade-In deal on new equipment with setups starting at $200. Different discounts apply when you turn it in, or if you decide to keep it another year and then turn it in.

Here's the catch. Get your gear early because that is when the better equipment is available. Don't put it off.

This seasonal rental rate is good for kids ages four to 18. There are four Colorado Ski & Golf stores and Boulder Ski Deals. Look for the big tent and the SKI REX sale. The tent sales last through Sept. 20 but you can get the Junior Trade-In deals until the gear runs out. You'll also find thousands of skis, snowboards, boots, bindings, clothes, and accessories at discount prices of 30-75 percent off.

The stores also have gone green. Bring your unwanted ski and snowboard equipment to the SKI REX sale and they'll take care of it for you. The good stuff will be fixed up and donated to charitable domestic programs. The equipment that you've completed destroyed hucking cliffs and sliding rails is shredded and made into various new products such as composite decking, flooring, furniture, and more.
