In the world of skiing and snowboarding, business is really competitive, and very seasonal. This means the entire industry is constantly trying to make a ton of products, sell a ton of products, and then do it all over again. Sometimes manufacturers will over produce a product and be unable to sell their entire stock though. This leads to a panic situation with a bunch of really important business men going, "Oh crap, oh crap, how are we ever going to sell all of these skis?!"
Don't worry business men, that's where Level Nine Sports comes in! In a situation like this, a company will sell all of their remaining product, in bulk, for next to nothing. And this is how Level Nine Sports offers the lowest ski prices
! At the end, or middle, or at any point during the season, Level Nine will be approached by manufacturers who know that we buy closeouts. Often times they'll offer us the lowest ski prices, if we bail them out of their mess. Usually, we gladly do.
Now I know some of you just had a fleeting thought cross your mind, that went something like this, "… if the equipment didn't sell the first time around, wasn't there a reason for it? Wouldn't this mean all closeouts are junk?" Well, no. Think about the last pair of skis you bought. I'm sure they are just what you wanted, but chances are there were at least 2-3 other skis with a very similar construction that you decided not to buy. So what made you choose that ski? It was probably one of several factors. Maybe it was the lowest price? Maybe you just liked the color. Or maybe, it was just the best option at the shop you happened to drop into. In any case, the winter sports industry is super competitive, so if a company doesn't nail down everything from the conception through the sale of a product, then chances are the product won't sell as well as a competitors.
And while we feel bad that some companies can't sell all of their products, we're even more stoked that Level Nine Sports can scoop these products up and offer the lowest ski prices imaginable. (Ok, so I guess we don't really feel that bad.) So there you have it! The answer to why Level Nine Sports has the lowest ski prices that you'll find anywhere.
