Get Used Equipment Deals At Fall Swaps; Here’s Where To Find Them

Park City Ski Swap & Sale

Swaps across the nation begin in early fall and peak in November. Ski swaps can offer a convenient and inexpensive way to fill in your current ski and snowboarding equipment or accessories. 

 

This is also a great place to try to sell some items you no longer need or want. Swaps are held at mountain resorts, consumer ski shows, outdoor shows, retail shops, or facilities run by organizations using the opportunity as a charity fundraiser. 

 

SnoCountry.com will continually update this list of 2013 swaps, so be sure to check back. Please let everyone know of additional swaps by adding a comment to this story.
