The annual Ski Swap is your chance to sell old ski equipment or to buy some gently used gear. The sale is Saturday, November 21st, 2020 11:00 am – 1:00 pm at the Trail Shop’s new location, 6112 Quinpool Rd.
Information for Sellers:
This is a terrific opportunity to sell your old ski equipment, buy some gently used gear, and to help new skiers get started. We’re anticipating a significant increase in interest in cross country skiing this winter – “the original winter social distancing sport” and many new skiers will be looking for equipment, so please consider selling some of your old gear to help a new skier get started. Ike Whitehead will be giving waxing demonstrations to help you get your skis ready for the season.
Please note that COVID-19 precautions will apply. All equipment sellers and buyers must wear a mask inside The Trail Shop and the number of people allowed in the store at one time will be limited.
The club will sell all equipment on consignment and take a 15% commission to help support the club’s activities.
