Thank You to Everyone Who Attended The 5th Annual Ski Fest

We’ll See You Next Year!

What Is Ski Fest?

Northeast Ohio’s Largest New Gear Ski & Snowboard Sale at Buckeye Sports Center In Peninsula, Ohio & Sun Valley Sports In Fairlawn/Montrose!

Ski Fest is Back for 2021!

TWO Locations this year- 1- @ Buckeye Sports Center in Peninsula under 1 roof with our new 11,000 square ft expansion bringing our showroom total of over 17,000 square feet. 2- Sun Valley Sports in Fairlawn/Montrose area with over 4,000 square feet.

Outdoor recreational equipment is on fire and we know that this will continue into the winter sports category and season. We anticipate come December and January to have a significant shortage of product available to sell- come in early for special Ski Fest and pre-season pricing as well as the best and full selection to choose from!


While we love the excitement of a big crowd and the energy of a “busy” sale- we are handling ski fest differently this year for obvious reasons. The safety of our customers and staff is our #1 priority!

  1. We’ve expanded the event from 3 days to 11 days to spread out the customer traffic flow (view hours here). We’ve also expanded the sale to include Sun Valley Sports in West Akron as an alternative location to spread people out further. We are going to adhere to the strict capacity guidelines mandated by the state of Ohio. This allows for us at Buckeye to have about 100 people in our facility at once including staff- spread out over 17,000 square feet this will allow for excellent spacing and room for everyone. 
  2. The Ski Fest Swap Shop is Back! The swap will be staged on the new lower level of the showroom at the Buckeye Location. A popular way for customers to buy or sell pre-owned gear. View details of drop off times available as well as what equipment will be accepted in the swap.
  3. We have worked with ski industry experts and industry professionals to re-vamp our boot fitting stations offering more space. Barriers between customers and an expanded boot fit area. Boot fitting is really the only area of shopping for ski gear where social distancing is difficult- so check out our website for more info for our new boot fitting policies and procedures to protect staff and customers.
  4. We’ve secured THOUSANDS of dollars worth of Gear Giveaways from many of our brands- two ways to register- online HERE and in person on-site at Buckeye or Sun Valley during the sale!
  5. As always, we have the guaranteed lowest prices online or offline for Ski Fest. This is in addition to our performance guarantee for skis & snowboards, as well as our boot fit guarantee for boots! Buy local and get extra bonus incentives and guarantees on your purchase!

*Free Prize Pack Valued at a minimum of $125 will be given away for all New Adult Ski & Snowboard Purchases at Ski Fest. Check the site closer to the sale to see what will be included in this pack!*


How will social distancing be enforced at the event?

  • We will adhere to the State Guidelines that are in place at the time of the event.
  • For bootfitting, our staff will have masks in their pocket available to use if customers feel more comfortable with that option (assuming there is no official mask mandate during time of event- in which case all employees will wear masks).
