Ski Gear Deal Season Starts Now: Spyder Blowout Sale At Gilt Until Midnight Tomorrow

Spyder Venom 1 jacket, $499 from $1,250

It’s March, meaning the days are getting longer and warmer, the snowpack is starting to dwindle (in some places at least), and companies are rushing to get rid of their winter inventory. It’s time to stock up for next winter.

And now, we’ve spotted the first blowout deal of the season: Gilt is offering a two-day sale on Spyder gear through Friday at midnight (technically Saturday). Spyder has been the go-to gear for downhill ski racers since 1978 thanks to its boundary-pushing fabric technology — that was notably banned in 1997 for providing an unfair advantage. The most significant upgrade came for the 2014 Winter Olympics with new compression-wear materials that resist stretching over time. The likes of Lindsey Vonn, Bode Miller, and Ted Ligety donned Spyder suits during the Sochi games.

All Spyder clothing is slashed, from solo Henleys (down to $49 from $149) to rail pants (just $89 from $212) and outerwear (Venom 1 jacket, a $1,250 value you can get for $499), to full-on ski suits (Performance DH Racer, $219 from $525). Most items are discounted more than 50 percent.

Enter the code SPRING20 at checkout and you’ll get an extra 20 percent off your entire Gilt order.

Order it tonight, get it next week, and you can still even take advantage of the 223-inch base at Tahoe’s Mount Rose, 210 inches at Kirkwood, or Squaw Valley’s 229 inches at the summit.
