Snow Gear Condition Guide

We love a good deal here at Next Adventure. We also feel that offering sustainable options that also save you money is a great combination that allows us to break down barriers to enjoying the outdoors. We scrutinize and grade every item prior to making it available for purchase. We offer several condition grades of ski & snowboard gear that fall into the following categories. 

New

New condition is product right off the shelf and brand new. Nothing too tricky about this condition. The product is covered by the manufacturer

New – BLEM

Indicates some type of minor cosmetic imperfection that will not impact the performance of the product. Examples of cosmetic blemishes could be minor dimples or scratches, misaligned graphics or logos, etc.  Blemished products are also covered by the manufacturer warranty. This is a great option to save money on a new product. Often, the blemish is unidentifiable. 

New – DAMAGED PACKAGING
