I wouldn't be a true frugal blogger living in Colorado if I didn't write a post about SNIAGRAB.
Gezudtheit, you say?
No, I didn't sneeze. Sniagrab (which is just "bargains" backwards) is an old western Labor Day tradition that originated in Colorado, though it has now spread to Idaho, Alaska, Washington (state) and Utah. It is considered to be the largest sale on ski equipment in the world, with bargains on this past year's models of winter sports equipment of up to 75% off. It is a HUGE, festive sale with surrounding events and giveaways that draws literally thousands of people to designated Sport Authority locations over Labor Day weekend. And the bargains are enormous. If you live in any of these five states or nearby and have been hankering for a new snowboard or ski thermals, this is the sale. Click here for more details. Watch the video above for a fun five minute look at last year's Sniagrab. We Coloradoans take our winters very seriously.
