Junior Trade Program

Let’s face it, they grow up quickly, and with the Junior Trade Program, their gear can grow with them! When you join, you own your child’s equipment for only as long as it fits, and once they’ve outgrown it, trade it in for a new size and huge savings!

Here’s how:

Step 1: Buy new or used equipment

  • New Gear: Starting at $249
  • Used Gear: Starting at $149

Step 2: Trade used gear for credit so you can purchase bigger sizes (proof of purchase required)

  • Once your child outgrows it, get 50% of your original purchase price back to use as a credit towards a bigger size when you trade in your equipment - even if you keep it for more than one year.
  • Trade-in gear subject to inspection and only useable gear, purchased within our trade-in program, will be accepted
  • In-store credit can be used towards the next set of gear or be used on any other products at all of our Vail Resort Retail locations. Proof of Purchase will be required to determine all trade-in values. 

Repeat yearly and continue to SAVE!
