Snowboards and Skis
Winter is almost here. For some people this is exciting while for others it is dreadful. Some love the cold while some hate it. Either way you look at it for those of you living in the mountains or anywhere near the slopes it offers a great opportunity to earn some extra money. In the 2016 to 2017 season over 24 million Americans participated in winter sports. This is a huge opportunity if you happen to live in the snow. So why not take advantage of it? Let’s take a look at one aspect of it. How can you do this?
If you own a pair of skis or a snowboard that you don’t use on a daily basis you can select the days or weeks you will not be on the slopes and rent them out. Rental prices can vary a lot from $30 to $90 a day depending on the location of the rental, length of use, and whether or not it is the latest and greatest piece of equipment. Why not take advantage of that! Rent to a person who will be on the slopes for a few days and you will make a nice little chunk from a piece of equipment you already have and that is just going to be sitting around.
If you buy the latest and greatest every year you could rent out your old ones. This may even pay for your new ones!
Or if you really want to get into it you could buy a multiple pairs of skis and snowboards and use those for your rentals.
You could rent them out depending on the renters stay. Depending on your rental price they should be able to pay for themselves after just a few rentals! Now you will either have yourself some fully paid for skis or you can just simply keep increasing your profit. You don’t have all the overhead costs that the resorts or stores have so a much larger percentage goes toward your pocket!
