Ski Swaps

Discounted skis at a ski swap in Ontario

What is a Ski Swap?

Traditionally, a ski swap is a community event where people bring their gently used or unused ski equipment to try and sell it. This is now known as the "public receiving" portion of the swap.

Over time, local businesses have joined these swaps as vendors to sell new equipment, used rentals, or demo skis. Some resorts host swaps and use them as an opportunity to sell their gently used ski rentals while piggybacking them onto their annual open houses.

Benefits of a Ski Swap

Swaps are a brilliant way to discover skiing because they offer:

✅  Extremely affordable equipment
✅  Lots to choose from
✅  A quick way to learn about nearby ski shops & their services

Rick's participates in ski swaps all over Ontario and we always bring a solid selection of skis, boots, apparel, accessories—all priced to sell!

Here's a few of the ski swaps that we normally attend:

  • Barrie Ski Swap
