Five Tips for Selling your Gear:

  1. Would you buy it? – equipment should be gently used and in good condition.
    1. Ski bindings over 10 years old can no longer be serviced by a licensed ski technician. As such, we do not accept them for sale.
    2. Snowboard bindings must be installed on a board – not sold as a standalone item.
  2. Make your gear shine & sparkle!
    1. Wipe the dirt, dust and grime off your boots, skis or snowboard.
    2. Close boot buckles and lace up boots to restore their shape.
    3. Remove any rust off the edges of skis and boards with some steel wool.
  3. Stay informed - Track the sales status of your gear online.
  4. Avoid the crowds - Have the proceeds mailed to you if all your gear sells.
  5. De-clutter - Donate your unsold equipment to charity.
