It’s Time To Get Ready For The Snow!

What Is Ski Fest?

Northeast Ohio’s Largest New Gear Ski & Snowboard Sale at Buckeye Sports Center In Peninsula, Ohio!

Ski Fest in Back for 2020!

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 are anticipating significant shortages of product come December and January- stop 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 10 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 135 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. Sun Valley will have similar guidelines at their location as well.
  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. 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 and well as our boot fit guarantee for boots! Buy local and get extra bonus incentives and guarantees on your purchase!

How will social distancing be enforced at the event?

  • We will limit the number of people in the showroom in general as well as in the swap portion of the sale on it’s own as mandated by the state of Ohio.
  • It is certainly possible that during the weekends in particular, you will have to wait for entry into the swap area or showroom in general. We hope that these wait times will be minimal (if at all). If this is a concern we recommend shopping during the week and avoid the weekends.
