A Buyer's Journey

A Buyer's Journey

Posted by Kelly Pilla, EVP Ski Haus on Nov 15th 2022

So it’s November 8th voting day and I’m in Denver looking at Obermeyer for the 2023/24 season. Driving to the iconic brands showroom, we get lost and have a mini tour of the burbs of Denver. There were several buyers in the car from around the country. While driving we discussed colors and kids. What they wear, how old they act at such young ages and what will they want to wear next year 2023/24 season. We all agreed that children are the decision makers on what clothing they want to wear. So how do we give them what they want? All while making Mom and Dad happy, too…? Where do we find inspiration for this next generation of great skiers and riders? Relying on a legacy ski brand like Obermeyer to suss out most of the trends on color and function is a great help along with taking clues from the prior season sales; while also pulling inspiration from trends in the fashion, home and auto industries. Ok, mostly it is a gut reaction that comes from years of buying clothing for retail. As buyers we are always about a year ahead of the market. We all keep our eyes on trends going on in day to day living. So, that means while the season of 2022/23 is just getting underway, I’m already plunging into the choices for the Ski Haus assortment for season 2023/24. So, what was the take away from this visit to Obermeyer showroom for 2023/24…? Fun, bright and functional outerwear for enjoyable outdoor winter adventures! As always this line doesn’t disappoint. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed either. But, for now we all remain in the 2022/23 season. Kids and teen outerwear from Obermeyer is fabulous this year—vibrant fabrics with adult technologies to keep your kids warm, dry and happy! Enjoy the winter season !Kelly, Executive VP,  Ski Haus|NOTB|Patio Place
JR LEASING + WOBURN UPDATE

JR LEASING + WOBURN UPDATE

Posted by Kelly Byrnes Pilla, EVP Ski Haus on Oct 18th 2022

Well, we have begun our ski and snowboard junior leasing program again. The program has been running since September 17th and we have noticed that a lot of you are returning to our program from prior years. First, I would like to Thank You for your business!! Second, there are some new things going on you will want to know:We are offering this season, 2022/23, a discounted Indy Pass it is a great deal for families. Find information here about the IndyPass: https://www.indyskipass.com/ in addition something new for us is a Junior Full Day Pass with the purchase of an Adult Pass at Cranmore Mountain https://www.cranmore.com/. Try something new at this mountain resort! When leasing from us you will have access to both of these offers along with $25 of "In Haus Cash" on pick up of your lease, information here: https://skihaus.com/in-haus-cash/. If you decide to buy a kids ski package we have you covered as well! You will receive a https://raggedmountainresort.com/Lift-Tickets/ Full day pass! This is a wonderful mountain for families.Our goal is to make leasing a smooth quick process for all our customers. So this season we implemented a new process to move things along faster. We call it the "Pit Stop" just like a pit stop in a Indy car race, we have multiple members of our staff working with each customer or family. This has proven to speed along the process for us and you! No more children falling asleep in line while snuggled up to one of our dogs :)...Lastly, we know that all of our Burlington customers are wondering what is going on with our new store in Woburn, MA. Please forgive the fact that we aren't open in a store near your home. Unfortunately, the supply chain, permitting and contractor issues have pushed back our open date to November now. It looks like it will be a Veterans Day Weekend open (insert prayer here). The store will probably still be in the process of being set up at that time. Hopefully, our doors will be open and our staff will be able to serve you and your winter equipment needs. Ski Haus does have two other locations that can serve you in Framingham, MA and Salem, NH and we would suggest that you go to either of these locations to get your kids lease package. There has been an overwhelming demand for leases again this year and we want to be able to supply ALL of our customers. Both locations are only a 30min drive from Burlington, MA.A pair of skis are the ultimate transportation to Freedom.-Warren Miller …
