Score some bargain winter gear or sell of your old ones at The Annual Ski & Snowboard SWAP

 In Blog, News

Winter is a few short months away and people from all over have started making plans for their vacations. Soon we will be digging out our ski equipments, dusting our snowboards, generally gearing up for the chilly months and the white slopes. However, not all among us will discover that our equipments, skis and snowboards are in perfect condition. Many will need to fix the existing ones or get new stuff, which would mean that the old lot will be essentially rejected.

But why let all those boards and equipments turn to junk? If you take a good look at them and evaluate objectively, you might notice that some or most of them have quite a few good years still left in them. For those among you who are frugal and want to stick with the same equipment, or for those who have sentimental values attached to the same, it’s a different case. However, for the rest- you can actually turn your rejects into a tidy little profit while avoiding cluttering your home or storage space with your old equipments.

Q: How can you turn your rejects into a tidy little profit?
A: Simple. Just take part in The Annual Ski & Snowboard SWAP.
