    Safety On Snow (SOS) Swap

    Saturday, November 5th, 2016

    Drop off of gear to sell is  Sat from 9-5
    Sale is Sunday from 10 -3
    Pick up unsold gear from 5-8 pm

    You can find just about any equipment that has to do with skiing or snowboarding at the ski swap.

    Whether you are interested in alpine skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, telemark skiing, or back country skiing you will find equipment to fit your needs. 

    If you are new to the sport we can help you get started.

    Most of the equipment that is sold at the swap is in pretty good to excellent condition… the previous owners have already loved the equipment but want to move on to newer gear.

    Prices will vary but you can expect to find some very good deals.

    It is not uncommon to find starter packages (skis, boots, poles, clothes) sold for under $100.

    Good equipment sells for a fraction of the original price.

    Come to the sale early, the best deals go first and fast!

    Payment can be made via cash, check, or credit card.

    This is a consignment sale. All sales are final.

    Location Is Big Sky High school on South ave West Across from Community hospital.
