Seems like every year, right about this time, I go into full-on savings mode, putting the brakes on frivolous spending and painfully analyzing my savings (with “painfully” being quite the apropos word choice). Perhaps it’s akin to hibernation, thinking about the long winter ahead and “storing the fat”, or maybe it’s from seeing all the squirrels at Sugar Bowl busily gathering and storing their stashes for the winter (and if this particular activity has any direct correlation to the winter ahead, we’re all in for quite a treat this year). But truth be told, the last thing I want to do with my winter is hibernate and I’m really not that big a fan of nuts. Regardless, the point remains: every year, right about this time, as we head toward winter, I watch my spends closely. Which is precisely the reason why I’m going to be first in line at Sugar Bowl’s annual Labor Day Weekend Ski & Snowboard Gear Blowout Sale, happening this September 1st – 3rd from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day, with HUGE savings on gear from the likes of Volkl, K2, Burton, Patagonia, Helly Hansen, Oakley, Sessions and many, many more top brands.
