How to get a cheap ski helmet from Amazon
A new survey from the University of California, Berkeley, finds that people are willing to pay $10 to $30 for cheap ski gear, even though they think it’s a waste of money.
The study, which was conducted among more than 1,300 participants, was published Monday in the Journal of Consumer Research.
Participants were surveyed about whether they were willing to spend $10 or $30 on ski goggles, and whether they thought that buying ski goggles would be a good idea for them.
The average price of ski goggles is $160.
In some cases, the price may be lower.
It was found that about 40% of the participants said they were “not really a fan of the product,” and only 7% were willing or able to spend more.
“People think that they can buy cheap ski helmets without being really a big fan of it,” said Dr. Scott Linsley, one of the study’s authors and a professor of psychology at Berkeley.
“It’s a shame that we have to be so hard on them.
But, yes, people are getting skis.”
The survey included the results of 2,000 interviews.
About one in three respondents were able to buy a ski mask for under $20.
In contrast, about a quarter of respondents said they could not afford to buy one for less than $100.
And almost 40% said they would be willing to shell out $50 to $100 on a ski helmet.
In a statement, Amazon said it’s committed to providing consumers with the best prices on skis, and the company “takes safety and security of our customers extremely seriously.
We’ve been working with leading safety and technology companies to improve our supply chain and support our customers in this way.
We’re always looking to expand our partnerships with leading companies that help us protect consumers.”
The study is the latest from researchers looking at the popularity of skis among the general public.
Last year, a study from University of Michigan researchers found that a majority of people were willing pay a bit more than $10 for ski goggles.
The survey also found that more than 70% of respondents were willing, or at least “extremely likely,” to spend a lot of money on skates or other outdoor gear.
The University of Alabama at Birmingham said in a statement that it’s working with Amazon on how to offer ski goggles at “low prices.”
The company is also working with companies like Amazon to offer skis at the lowest price possible, said Alixo Lohman, a spokesperson for the university.
