6 Ways Sports Garage Will Help You Have The Best Winter Ever

Sports Garage is Canmore's newest sports and lifestyle shop. Owned and operated by three longtime locals, Peter Philp, Simon Philp, and Louis Panning-Osendarp, this place is rapidly becoming a staple in our community. If you haven't had the pleasure of popping into the shop yet, what are you waiting for?

Sports Garage has a huge selection of new and used sporting goods, gear, and apparel for you to choose from. They also offer equipment rentals, service and maintenance for various sports, and a whole lot more. In a community with no shortage of sports and activities, there are endless ways to use Sports Garage's offerings to your advantage.

Now that we're in the thick of winter in the Bow Valley, here are some ways Sports Garage will help you make the most of the season.

Try Everything Without Breaking the Bank

Dabbling in various sports can get pretty expensive. Each new sport or activity comes with the necessary equipment. Rather than breaking the bank every time you or your kids want to try something new, why not get set up with high-quality consignment gear? Whether it's hockey, skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or any new sport you've decided to try, you can find your setup in Sports Garage's consignment offerings for a fraction of the price of buying it new. The best part? If a new sport catches your eye next week, you can bring your items back and consign them so someone else can take them home. Price should never stand in the way of experiencing what the outdoors offer!

Forget About Embracing the Cold

It's pretty tricky to have the best winter ever when you're constantly freezing. Getting the proper outerwear will change your life in this chilly valley, so head to Sports Garage to shop their massive stock of consignment outerwear and winter apparel. You'll find brand-name items in a range of sizes and styles. If you want to layer up even further, grab a Sports Garage hoodie or crew neck while you're there.

Skate Your Way Through Winter

Lacing up a pair of skates in the winter is a Canadian right of passage. Whether you're gliding across a glistening alpine lake or heading to the arena for a hockey game, Sports Garage can set you up. The hockey pro shop you may remember as Stickworx has come together and re-branded as Sports Garage to offer new hockey gear, skate sharpening, skate and stick maintenance, and skate rentals. If you or your kids play hockey, Sports Garage's hockey services will become your best friends. If you're simply looking to rent a pair of skates for a few hours or a couple of days, Sports Garage has you covered.

Get Tuned Up

Sports Garage is now offering ski tuning for the winter! Head down to the shop to get your skis tuned up and ready for the hill. No appointment needed.

Get Rid of that Clutter

Nothing clears the mind like clearing out your garage! The consignment process at Sports Garage is completely stress-free for you. Instead of coordinating with a stranger on marketplace, bring your gear down to Sports Garage. They'll deal with selling it and getting you your funds. All you need to do is sort through your things and bring your gently used apparel and equipment to the shop. It's that easy. They’re now accepting winter consignment items.

Support Local

Supporting local is always a good idea, but even more so around the holidays. If you love supporting a local business and you're looking for the perfect gifts for the Bow Valley folks on your list, look no further. Gifts are made easy at Sports Garage, from new and used sports goods and accessories to Sports Garage merchandise and gift cards. They've got you covered.
