So you’ve lived in ski country for a number of years now or perhaps your whole life- and you’ve never been skiing?! The Wasatch Front is home to the Greatest Snow on Earth, which is why thousands of winter athletes came to compete in the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics of 2002 and Olympic athletes choose Utah to continue to train for the next Olympics...
"But the equipment is just so expensive!" you tell yourself. Well, not at SkiTruck.com - Salt Lake City’s and the world’s largest discount ski shop. We offer more variety than all the shops in the world combined... pick a price and we can give you many choices at any price from $99 to $999...!!! that is for skis, boots, bindings, poles, fitted all ready to ski when you recieve them....
Over 30 years of putting people on the slopes for less
Jeff White founded Ski Trucks back in 1969. started selling out of his apartment while at BYU..He owned a ski truck (56 chev pickup)and sold skis right out of the back in an open parking lot.then traveled from town to town..sometimes following the snow.. The business has grown extensively since then (1969), and now he has one 24,000 sq ft shop....located just west of the Utah State Fairpark at 1260 W North Temple. near the salt lake city international airport.
"People come in and want skis, but they don’t want to pay a lot" says Jeff. "I’ve been selling ski packages to people on a budget for more than forty years. I sold complete ski packages for $99 dollars then, I can still sell complete used ski packages for $99 dollars today." the cleaner used package for $188 is a hit... $288 is half new half used. This has become one of our best selling packages.
$388+ you can get all new...fitted all ready to ski......
Now don’t kid yourself, the low-end package is a bit dated, but you don’t need all that fancy stuff to have fun on the slopes. Many customers love the store because there is a wider selection of quality used and new goods. Have you ever wondered what happens to all those skis you’ve rented in the past? If they’re still in good condition you might find them here, at a price comparable to what you paid to rent for just a few days... yep own your own for a weeks rental—no equity in rentals. Has your child grown out of those 80cm skis? Bring them into the shop and you may be able to trade the old ones for a discount on a larger size.
Don't want used stuff?
If you don’t want used stuff, the shop has a large selection of new Salomon, Head, Dynastar, Atomic and Völkl skis and other name brand equipment, all available at a fraction of the original price. Do you need hats, gloves or a nice winter coat? We sell anything that can keep you warm while you’re out in the cold.
Snowboarders are also welcome at Ski Trucks. New and used boots and boards from Head, Matrix, Salomon, snowjam, roxy, Airwalk, Nidecker, Winterstick and many other fine brands are available. Of course we’ve got a wide selection of trade-in and used rental boards as well. we have used Packages from $150 for board, bindings and boots.. new from $240... We also have step-in snowboard packages... used and new... more convient.. Ski Trucks has everything you need to ride Utah’s "Greatest Snow on Earth." Even on a humble student budget, you’ll find very affordable demos and new closeouts.
So, whether you think a nice pair of ski boots would make a good Christmas gift, or if a full snowboard package is your thing, send Santa and your friends to skitruck.com at 1260 West North Temple, just west of the Utah State Fairpark or check us out on the web at www.skitruck.com.

- 4. How did Skitrucks start?
As a college student working for a ski company, Jeff White learned the insides of the ski business mounting hundreds—even thousands—of ski rentals then shipping wholesale orders, and taking care of customers. When he was invited to represent the company, he traveled some 70,000 miles a year and in three years took the territory from 45,000 /year to over 400,000. He had ski companies owing him more than 27,000 in commission, but when they couldn't pay he had to take stock they could not sell and go sell it in parking lots to get his commissions. He quickly found that there was a market for the unwanted year-old or older equipment. 40 some years later Skitrucks has a following from all over the planet including many 3rd generation Skitruckers.
- 5. How do you know what size and measurements to use for my online purchases?
SkiTrucks is the only Ski and Snowboard shop that will fit your products to your very unique body measurements and skill level whether you purchase in store or online. This is made possible by you filling out an online Skier/Rider Profile for each person you shop for and keeping that profile maintained and up-to-date.

We have been doing this for over 40 years saving families and individuals hundreds of dollars each ski season.
