Portland’s show is full of things to see, do, and win. There’s a giant ski sale with ski and snowboard gear from Portland’s major winter retailers at up to 70 percent discount. Sell your used clothing and equipment at the ski swap – and keep 80 percent of the sales price. The swap also features new non-current, closeout, and lightly used pre-owned skis, snowboards, boots and accessories from quality stores from all over the state of Oregon.
There’s more: Rail Jam, Freeride show, Hot Dog Skier Lounge, Tire Chain Contest, and two-for-one lift ticket deals from Mt. Hood SkiBowl, Mt. Hood Meadows, and Timberline. New this year is the Wine Chalet.
Meet ski and snowboard reps who help you select the equipment that’s right for you, fit you properly, and guarantee your service after the sale.
