This year's resale will be held in Varsity Hall, Union South, on Saturday, December 2nd, 2023 from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sunday, December 3rd, 2023 from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m.! You can pay with credit (Discover, Visa, Mastercard), debit, wiscard, or cash.
About the Resale
The Hoofers Ski and Snowboard Resale is the largest ski swap in the Midwest! Come enjoy great deals on winter gear (for all ages!) 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!
Hoofers Alpine and Nordic Teams will also be waxing and sharpening skis and snowboards at the Resale. Alpine prices will be $20 for wax, $20 for tuning per snowboard or pair of skis, or $30 for both. Nordic waxing will be $15. 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
- Straight alpine skis
- Any skis with non-indemnified bindings (which can be found here)
- Non-rigid snowboards
- Snowboards with step in bindings
- Cross-country skis with 3-pin or 75mm bindings
- Cross-country boots that fit the 3-pin binding
- Alpine boots that are more than 18 years old and no longer meet current standards for sole shape and slipperiness
All apparel must be cleaned.
We withhold the right to not accept any items.
Our Public Check-In Verification Agreement form can be found here.
A live-updated list of PCI items sold at the event can be found here.
Checks for sold PCI items should arrive by the end of January.
If your items do not sell, you must pick them up after the sale. If you do not, they become the property of the Hoofers Ski and Snowboard Club. All transactions are final. Refunds and exchanges will not be given. Hoofers cannot make exceptions to this rule.
