Corvallis Ski Swap Coming Soon

The ski and snowboarding season is nearly here. Although we do have Peak Sports in Corvallis, a store where new snow equipment is available and Play it Again Sports, a store with used equipment, ski swap is another option for Corvallisites.  

This year marks the 53rd annual Corvallis Ski Swap taking place at the Solar Livestock Barn at the Benton County Fairgrounds. This event will be a fundraiser for Corvallis Mountain Rescue Unit and Santiam Pass Ski Patrol, and will run from October 14 through 17. 

Consignment begins on Thursday, Oct 14, 12:00 – 9:00 p.m. and ends on Friday 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. 

The sale takes place on Friday Oct 15, 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. (tickets required), and on Saturday, Oct 15, 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.  

Regular admission $1, Special VIP for an early entry (5:30 p.m.) on Friday $25. 

Starting Thursday, Oct 14 at noon, tickets will be available for purchase online at https://secure.givelively.org/event/corvallis-ski-swap-inc/2021-corvallis-ski-swap 

For sellers: Consignment fee is $.50 per item and sales fee is 20%. To sell items, clothes need to be clean and repaired as needed; Alpine boots must meet DIN standards. Alpine bindings must be indemnified and mounted.
