The Hoofers Ski and Snowboard Club is proud to announce our 56th Annual Resale Ski and Snowboard Swap!
This year's resale will be held in Varsity Hall, Union South, on Saturday, December 7th, 2019 from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sunday, December 8th, 2019 from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m.!
About the Resale
The Hoofers Ski and Snowboard Resale is the largest ski swap in the Midwest! Come enjoy great deals on winter gear such as downhill and cross-country skis, snowboards, apparel, and more at significantly discounted prices. Equipment is supplied by both local and national vendors, and we also collect new and slightly used gear from the community. This means that you can bring your own gently used gear to resell. Make the upcoming winter months active and full of fun with new or new-to-you equipment!
Proceeds from the sale help fund Hoofers Nordic, Alpine, and Freestyle teams, as well as general Hoofers trips. The Resale also provides funding for our annual free ski trips with local non-profit groups such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters. So mark your calendars - we're looking forward to helping you find your new winter gear!
Resale is a great place to pick up winter gear for everyone. Official sale times are December 7th, 2019 (from 8a.m. - 5 p.m.) and December 8th, 2019 (from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m.). If you're shopping for someone else, prepare yourself by bringing a list with their height, weight, and boot/shoe size (preferably in European sizing as well as standard sizing).
We accept cash as well as Visa and Mastercard debit and credit cards. Unfortunately, we can no longer accept checks.
Hoofers Alpine and Nordic Teams will also be waxing and sharpening skis and snowboards at the Resale. Prices will be $10 for wax and $10 for tuning per snowboard or pair of skis. The money goes directly to the teams, so this is a great opportunity to get your gear tuned and ready for the season!
Please note that the Alpine and Nordic Teams will NOT be mounting bindings. Hoofers SnS cannot make exception to this rule.
To sell your equipment, all you have to do is drop off your equipment with us and let our on-site salespeople sell it for you over the weekend! Hoofers Ski and Snowboard Club will take a portion of the sale. If you are unsure of how to price your items, volunteers at the public drop off can offer suggestions. You will be able to track the sale of your items online. You are responsible for double checking all the details of items entered into the system (price, size, description, etc.). More information will be provided when you drop off your gear.
A maximum of 10 items are accepted per person. Unfortunately, we cannot accept:
- Used helmets
