Where to find ski apparel in South Florida

Bundled UpFor Christmas, we went skiing in Vermont. It was a lot of fun and having the right clothing made a big difference. In order to get the right stuff, I went all over Broward County, Florida.
Here’s a list of the stores I found with ski apparel:

  • Burlington Coat Factory (in Sawgrass Mills) – This place was great. The selection and pricing was amazing. I was able to get my daughter’s ski outfit (ski bibs, jacket, and hat) for $49 and my son’s ski outfit (ski pants and jacket) for $35. I also got a great deal on the kids waterproof boots. In general, Burlington Coat Factory is a good place to find ski jackets, ski pants, adult ski gloves/mittens, and snow boots. I suggest going here first.
  • Sports Authority (check yours, but definitely in Pembroke Pines and Sawgrass Mills) – The selection was okay and the pricing was full retail. I was able to get good winter socks (not ski socks), Columbia ski jackets (for my husband and myself), ski pants, ski hats, and waterproof Timberland boots. You pay full price, but you get a little bit different selection. Sports Authority carries ski jackets, ski pants, waterproof boots, winter socks, ski gloves, ski hats, and base layers. Availability for these items is seasonal. Sports Authority is a good place to go after you’ve been to Burlington Coat Factory.
  • Target (check yours, but definitely at Miramar and Sawgrass) – I was rather surprised, but I was able to pick up a few things and the pricing was very reasonable. I bought kids’ neck gaiters, boy’s ski gloves, a boy’s ski hat, kids’ thermals, and men’s base layers. Target turned out to be a good place for children’s ski accessories and for men’s thermals and base layers. Availability for these items is seasonal.
  • Peter Glenn Ski & Sports ( 2 locations in Ft. Lauderdale and many other locations) – This store has it all. The staff is very knowledgable and friendly. The selection is overwhelming. The prices can get high, depending on how fancy you want to get. I purchased goggles, ski socks, kid’s ski mittens, adult neck gaiters, and adult headbands. Peter Glenn is where you go to get the hard to find items, i.e. goggles and ski socks, especially for kids. Of course, if your budget allows, Peter Glenn can be your one stop shop for all your ski apparel.
  • Consignment Shops – I tried one kids’ consignment shop and they had a small section of ski apparel, just ski pants and jackets. Availability for these items is seasonal. I found their prices similar to Burlington Coat Factory’s. I didn’t end up buying anything. However, consignment shops can be hit or miss, you may have better luck.

Some other options are shopping online, borrowing from friends & family, or renting your ski apparel.

I hope you find everything you need and have a wonderful time on your ski trip.

Redweek.com, a traveler’s delight

Making SnowmanLast year, my husband and I decided we would like to take the kids to see snow and enjoy its wonders. I did the research and found that Smugglers’ Notch in Vermont has been voted the #1 Resort for Family Programs in North America for 8 years by the readers of SKI Magazine! I then contacted Smuggler’s Notch to get pricing for a 7 night stay during Christmas week for a family of 4. The quote they gave me was very steep. The reviews for this place were off the charts, but so was the price.

Trying not to let go of the dream, I began my intensive search of the internet to find another way. That’s when I came across Redweek.com. According to their site, they are the largest online marketplace for renting, buying, and selling timeshares. And the timeshares are all over the world, including Smugglers’ Notch. I was able to find the week I wanted at a great an awesome price. The site also had about 25 reviews on Smuggler’s Notch, which I found very helpful.

The process to use Redweek.com was very simple. To view the listings is free. However, when you are ready to contact the timeshare owner, you need to pay a nominal fee to become a member. You communicate with the owner via e-mail and from there it’s between you and the owner. In my case, the owner explained his payment process and described the room in great detail. It was exactly what I was looking for. So, we sent him the deposit and he had the resort send us the reservation confirmation. Then, just a couple weeks prior to our trip, we made our final payment to him. When we got to the resort, we were just like every other guest there (except we paid a lot less). We checked in and had nothing but wonderful surprises our entire stay.

From start to finish, Redweek.com was great and I can’t wait to use it again!
