Where to buy ski clothing?

I will be visiting Breckenridge for the first time with friends at the end of January for a couple of weeks.

All I have purchased so far is a ski jacket. As we're currently living in Australia, the ski gear here is pretty expensive and I wondered if it might be better value to buy at the resort.

Does anyone have any comments on the value for money of ski gear in Breckenridge itself? If so, details of any recommended shops would be great!

Thanks :)

Try the Sports Authority in Silverthorne or buy some in Denver before you head to Breck.

My hubby and I have just booked to go too, we live in the Dominican Republic and before that the Caribbean coast of Mexico - my husband doesn't even OWN a jacket or shoes/boots.

We are staying with friends which is helpful for the odd loan - but my plan is to hit TJ Maxx clearance store the day after we get there. There are a few in Denver and we have hire car.

They are all over US and in UK (where we're from).

Everything is super cheap and excellent known brands too - I don't shop anywhere else these days!

Don't count on TJ Maxx having much in the way of ski clothing. Warm stuff yes but not for the slopes.

We've always had good luck at the Outlets at Silverthorne. Columbia and Great Outdoor Clothing usually have lots of ski wear.

Even if you purchase full priced retail clothing from any of Breckenridge's premier shops it will be FAR less than what you have in Australia. The cost of ski clothing for you at home is marked up far higher than most Americans understand, and while shopping at outlets or in Denver will be exceptional deals, even retail price will be a very pleasant surprise for you.
