Bogus Ski Swap


As the trees drop their leaves and the clouds prepare to drop snow; skiers and snowboarders are getting ready to flock to Expo Idaho for new-to-them winter gear.

The Bogus Basin Ski Education Foundation's 60th annual Ski Swap starts on Friday, Nov. 5. Expo Idaho will be filled with thousands upon thousands of pieces of used ski/snowboard equipment, along with every piece of gear that accompanies the winter sports. This sale is the foundation's largest fundraiser and all proceeds will support the ski training programs.

It works like this: anyone with any used gear that they would like to sell can take it to the Expo and buyers in need of equipment will acquire it for a very good deal. The seller gets 75 percent of the sale price, while the Ski Education Foundation takes 25 percent for commission, which will be donated to the training programs.

The ski swap accepts all winter sport gear: skiing gear, Alpine, Nordic, snowboarding gear, clothing and all related accessories. Sellers may drop off equipment Thursday, Nov. 4, 3-9 p.m.; Friday, Nov. 5, 11 a.m.-9 p.m.; and Saturday, Nov. 6, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. This will ensure fresh equipment will continue to flow throughout the event. The ski swap is open to the public and the sale begins Friday, Nov. 5 at 5 p.m. and ends Sunday, Nov. 7, at 3 p.m.

Any unsold equipment may be picked up on Sunday, Nov. 7, from 3-5 p.m.
