It’s Fall, which means the ski season is just around the corner. Numerous resorts and ski shops throughout the Mid-Atlantic region offer “Ski Swaps” during the Fall, providing a chance to buy or sell used snowsports equipment. Many of these Swaps are operated by local ski patrols. DCSki has compiled a list of some upcoming Swaps below; if you are familiar with additional Swaps, please feel free to add them in the comments section below.
Before visiting a Swap, contact the organizer to verify details. Dates and hours may change without notice. You may also wish to review these classic tips on getting the most out of pre-season sales and ski swaps, provided by Otto Matheke on DCSki way back in 1998.
