What is a Ski Swap – How Does It Work

The annual Collingwood Ski and Snowboard Swap is an opportunity to buy or sell used equipment or surplus new equipment.  Sellers “register” their skis, snowboards and associated sporting goods with us from Thursday Oct 19th 1-9pm, Friday 9am – 9pm. Registration involves you filling out a form telling us who you are, describing your goods and telling us how much you want to sell them for. The equipment is tagged and put on display.  The swap is open to buyers Thursday 4pm to 9pm,  Friday between 9:00am and 9:00pm then again Saturday between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm. Buyers have the opportunity to check out the merchandise and ask questions from qualified sales personnel.  If your registered goods sell, you receive 80%* of the price you chose to sell the item for. You are required to come back on Sunday between 9:00am and Noon, at this time if your item sold you will receive a cheque, or chose Etransfer.   If your item did not sell it will be there for you to take home, alternatively, you can leave them with us as a donation.   Everyone is welcome.  Parking and admission are free and there is no charge to register goods. We keep a 20% commission on all good sold with a minimum of $5 per item.

Anyone is allowed to purchase items, you do not have to register an item to purchase.

There is no charge to register an item for sale.   Registration Link to download a form
