Snowboarding equipment can be purchased in different places.
Consumers can find equipment on the Internet and often will receive
free shipping if the purchase is large enough. Also, equipment can be
purchased at shops located in ski resorts. There are also independent
retailers and specialty shops that sell snowboarding equipment.
Snowboarding equipment purchased over the Internet will be the least
expensive. This is because there is no middleman and savings are passed
on to the consumer. Equipment purchased at large retailers such as Dick's
Sporting Goods will be slightly more expensive. Equipment will be most
expensive when purchased at a ski resort.
In regions where snowboarding is popular there are often shows for
snowboarding equipment. Here consumers can see the latest in gear and
buy packages at inexpensive prices. Some consumers have reported buying
a complete board and binding set for as little as $200 at such a show.
