The Swap is great place to find deals on used ski equipment or an excellent motivator to clean out your closets and unload some equipment that you no longer use. The local ski shops will be there too with a variety of items for sale

Looking to sell your outgrown equipment and clothing? Gear drop off will be on Friday, November 4th from 4 to 8:00 pm in the lower level of Peabody Base Lodge. Unsold items may be picked up between Noon and 1 pm on Saturday. Any items remaining after 1 pm will be donated to local charities. 30% off the proceeds from the sale of each item will be retained by FSC. Sellers will receive a check for their portion (70%) by mail within two weeks of the event.

We will be using an online system for consignment this year which will allow sellers to register and tag their items from home ahead of time. More information for consignors will be coming soon.
