Ski Swaps

Thought we should start a thread for local ski swaps.

West Mountain, Nov 8 & 9
http://www.lakegeorge.com/event/west-mountain-ski-swap-80055/

This particular swap usually offers lots of good kids race gear as they pull from NYSEF, Lake George, Queensbury, and Saratoga HS ski teams.

Re: Ski Swaps

I'll trade Pow Assassin for anyone...

Re: Ski Swaps

Mount Peter's was this past weekend 10/18 and 10/19.  There is an aftersale on 10/26.  I think that they are the only place that has one in my area.

Mount Peters sale & swap is October 15-16 this year. What they call the "after sale" is the 23rd. If you just need kids skis for non-racers, these guys usually have decent former-rentals for ridiculously cheap (like less then what I used to pay for a seasonal rental)

Re: Ski Swaps

Nysef swap is usually first Saturday in Nov at the Catholic school on Saranac Ave in LP

Good deals to be had particularly on kids gear

Just now saw this, but Mt Peter did NOT do the swap thing this year. I spoke to the head of the Ski Patrol that previously ran the swap and he said that the labor involved to manage and run the swap was not sufficiently rewarded by the $$ return.

They did indeed have a sale, run by Ski Barn where last year's equipment and soft goods as well as used equipment was sold. I scored a very nice Marmot jacket at half of the suggested retail price and my one son got a used Burton snowboard.
