The 3 Best Spots in NYC to Upgrade Your Ski & Snowboarding Gear


With winter upon us, it’s time to grab your ski, snowboard, and maybe even your snow tubing gear and head to the slopes for some thrilling downhill fun. However, when you dust off your equipment, you notice the loose bindings, the board that’s seen better days, the skis that are well past their prime, and you realize it’s time for an upgrade. So, with snow-themed recreation in mind, here are three spots in NYC where you can update your ski and snowboarding gear so you can hit the slopes with confidence.


As one of the country's largest chain stores for outdoor recreation and gear, REI in NYC is an obvious choice for your winter sports needs. Whether you're purchasing new equipment, repairing your old gear, or just getting your skis or board waxed, their SoHo flagship location has you covered.


When your hunt for snowboarding and ski gear is just as much about fashion as function, look no further than Zumiez. Zumiez has over 40 years of history providing gear and apparel synonymous with the free-spirited skate and snow culture. Nearby locations in Elmhurst, Brooklyn, and Jersey City make this a convenient spot to upgrade your ski and snowboarding gear.


NYC's premier snowboarding and accessory shop, Burton’s flagship store on Greene Street in NYC, has provided excellent snowboarding gear and apparel for over 40 years. With a focus on product sustainability, when you purchase an item from Burton, you can do so with the knowledge that the item is made with care and the individuals that made it are treated well and work under excellent conditions.
