The 49th Annual Ski Swap Is Set For The End Of The Month
Attention skiers and snowboarders mark your calendars for the 49th Annual Ski Swap at a new location this year. The event will be Friday October 23 from 4-9pm Saturday October 24 from 10-4 and Sunday October 25 from 11-3 at the Upper Chalet at Spirit Mountain. This is a great opportunity to upgrade your equipment or get rid of unused items like skis, poles, snowboards, boots, helmets and clothing and pick up some great deals.
If you have kids equipment we all know how quickly they can outgrow that, so you definitely want to take advantage of this sale. You can get great deals on new or used equipment with hundreds of people trading up or getting rid of equipment they no longer use.
Local ski shops will also be on sight with great deals for the sale along with store staff and experienced skiers and snowboarders ready to help you. You do not have to be an experienced skier or snowboarder to purchase items, staff on hand will make sure to help you get the best equipment that is right for you and your kids.
The Ski Swap is run by volunteers as a fundraiser for Team Duluth, with all the proceeds going to make their programs more affordable for kids in our area. No Drop Offs Are Allowed on the day of the sale. Drop off dates are Sunday 10/18, 4-7 pm; Tuesday 10/20, 5-8 pm, Thursday 10/22, 5-8 pm. * Nordic (Cross Country) skis are not handled by the swap - Alpine skis only.
SELLING PROCEDURE : The sales procedure is simple.
- Bring in your equipment in during Drop Off times listed above.
- All items should be clean/washed and less than 5 years old.
- Purchase a numbered registration ticket for $3 (one for each item) and set your price. Your item will be placed on the sales floor with others like it. You can check online during the sale to see if your item has sold. If it has, you will receive a check in about a month for the sale price less a 20% Team Duluth commission.
- Equipment that hasn’t sold must be picked up before 3 pm Sunday afternoon, or we will donate or recycle it.
