Equipment Swap November 1

The Swap will be at Bear Mountain on Sunday, November 1st from 8am to 11am.

Equipment Swap Guidelines

The Equipment Swap will be a great place to bargain shop for quality sports equipment for the upcoming season!  

What and How to Sell at the Swap

Skis, Snowboards, Boots, Poles, Armor, Speed Suits, Stealth Suits, Pole Guards, Race Back Packs, Helmets, Race Gloves, Tuning Equipment (We will not be selling non-ski, non-freeski, or non-snowboard-related gear.  Please do not bring ‘vintage’ or outdated equipment – it will not be accepted for sale.)

  1. Dust off your sports team equipment and decide what you want to sell at this year’s swap.  Clean it up so it’s ready to sell, and decide what you would like to sell it for.
  2. Be realistic when you are pricing.  Remember that although you may have spent $700 on the skis, they are now used.  Why would someone choose to buy something used when they could get something new for almost the same price?
  3. Bring it to the Bear Mountain base area by 8 AM to set up. Be thinking about how you will display your gear for sale.
  4. You will need to have someone watch your items at all times.  You can arrange to share the oversight with someone else who is also selling items.

To Purchase at the Swap

Bring CASH!  Some sellers may accept checks, but we can’t guarantee that they will be accepted at the swap.

Bring your racer, to make sure the size works.  There will be no returns.

Bring your questions.  We’re hoping to have some coaches on hand to help you with questions regarding condition, appropriate sizing and length.

Shop early!  The swap will be open for shopping at 9 AM.  There will be no holds placed on any gear.

Remember that we will be selling ski bibs at the swap: both used and new.

After the Swap

Tally up your gear sales.  We expect that you will donate 10% to the team.  We will add your donations to our uniform re-purchase fund.

Clean up your selling area.  It is your responsibility to help us leave no trace behind that we had an event.

Drop off your skis for a pre-season tune or to have bindings adjusted or mounted by the professional of your choice.  Goldsmith’s has great prices for SSRT families to get your gear in race condition, and to keep it that way all season long.

Warranties

All equipment is sold “as is” and there are absolutely no warranties for condition or suitability for your racer.
