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.

Looks like the Baltimore swap is in Towson, not Timonium. The website states several shops are bringing stuff to sell. Should be a good time.
