The retail machine is doing it’s best to move Christmas into early November. I’m not sure if they realize that offering Black Friday deals in early November doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll make more money but likely means they’ll just shift their revenue from December to November. WHY CAN’T WE HIT OUR DECEMBER PLAN? Of course this is from the viewpoint of a fiscally responsible individual, something rare in this day and age. I’m sure if I was the usual D.R.E.A.M.** consumer I’d say fuck it and just leverage myself and spend moremoremore. But I digress.
Anyways, I got an email the other day from a random asking me for gift ideas for the snowboarder/skier on their list. Conveniently enough I got an email from the homey Erik at Super Happy Wax announcing his new wax kits were available. Fate or coincidence?
Erik has put together three different kits to get your base lube on, the Basic, Deluxe and Ultimate, shown from top to bottom below. The kits he’s assembled are a great value. Compare his Deluxe kit to the Swix Alpine Glide Wax kit you’ll see that you’ll get MORE and have almost $50 leftover for beer.

The REI Anniversary Sale starts today and runs through the 26th. REI claims this is their biggest sale of the year and a way to cop some new goods for your
Anyways, shop on shoppers.
Mountain Gear is having a tiered discount sale, starting today. Starts at 60% off, goes 70% on Sat/Sun, and hits 80% on Monday/Tuesday. A lot of it looks like stuff that they’ve had in their clearance for awhile, just marked back up to full price to take the 60% off of, but hey.
The discounts won’t appear til you put the merchandise in your cart so you’ve gotta throw it in there to check. Saw quite a few pairs of snowboard boots, a Jones Solution split for $319 and some other random stuff. Worth checking.
Just saw that Mountain Gear was doing an x30% off sale, and they’ve got a few splits included in it. Venture Storm for $385, Never Summer SL and Summit both for $420 each, Crock Pot Panoramic for $280, and the Venture Odin for $420. Pretty damn good prices if they’ve got a board you want in your size. BTW the price is taken off once in your cart so don’t trip if you don’t see it at first.
I’ve been in the market for a high quality down jacket, something with more fill then my old clapped out down sweater but less than a full on expedition style jacket. Had my eyes on the Feathered Friends Helios for awhile, almost pulling the trigger two weeks back when I was in Seattle. Flash forward to yesterday and *BOOM* email comes through saying they are doing 40% off on Helios. Locked, loaded and trigger pulled on a no frills, no bullshit down jacket. Spending money you don’t have FTW, stoked!
UPDATE: Received my Helios today and to my surprise it’s made in China. Guess that explains why they can sell ’em at 40% off.
