7 Years Running and Bigger Than Ever. AT, Tele, Splitboard. Come upgrade your gear!
We started this awesome event 7 years ago and it has grown every year. When we were just getting into the backcountry we would go from ski swap to ski swap picking through the meager selection of telemark gear hidden in the back under burnt out lightbulbs. Thats when we decided there needed to be a backcountry specific shop and a backcountry specific swap.
Carbondale: October 13-14th
Vail: October 20-21
This is a great opportunity to get into the sport without spending thousand of dollars and an incredible time to upgrade as we give you 110% of the money your gear sells for. That means sell a pair of skis for $500 and we will give you $550 in store credit. Or you can walk with 70% cash 10% higher than our normal consignment rate. The 110% must be used for new this years gear.
With that being said, this event has only succeeded in years past because of the engagement of the community. The more people come to the swap, the better chance you have of getting in the right gear for you at an awesome price. If you plan on attending, please go ahead and fill out our survey so we can know what gear to expect!

Living in the mountains it is a constant cycle. The cycle of the seasons and the cycle of cleaning out the gear closet just to fill it up again. Get stoked for the ski season with gear, beer, and coffee because winter is coming!
