Ski Waxing Available on November 3

We'll have ski waxing available for both Nordic and Alpine skis as you check out of the Ski Swap on Saturday, November 3. For a small fee, the BSF Nordic Elite Team will wax your skis. You can pick them up, waxed and ready to go, at 406 Brewery later that day, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. (Not buying skis at the swap but still want a wax? Just drop them off at 406 Brewery between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday.) 

Thanks to Start Wax for sponsoring. All proceeds from waxing go directly to the BSF Nordic Elite Team.

Consignment Info

DROPOFF:

We only accept consignment items 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 2.

There is a $1 per item fee to check in items for consignment. CASH ONLY.

BSF provides consignment tags and paperwork; you are expected to fill them out completely.

You do NOT need to be a BSF member to consign items in the swap.

THE SALE

Shop till you drop Saturday and Sunday. (Visa, Mastercard, and Discover accepted at checkout. But bring cash for the $2 admission fee!)

SOLD ITEMS LIST & PICKUP

BSF will begin updating an "unsold items" list around noon on Sunday. This list will be posted on this website page and updated regularly. Check it to see if your items sold. (We update this as quickly as we can enter sold items into the database, but it is possible that late-selling items may still appear on the list.)

SOLD ITEMS: If an item sells, a 20% consignment fee goes to Bridger Ski Foundation. You will be mailed a check for the rest. (It typically takes a few weeks to finish processing all payments; it's a big job!)

UNSOLD ITEMS: You must pick up your unsold items between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Sunday. Any items left unclaimed by 5pm on Sunday, November 4, 2018 are permanently retained by Bridger Ski Foundation.

PRO TIPS FOR sELLERS:

Clean up your items. They will sell better.

Note the size, color, and brand.

Know what price to list your items at.

Take your time filling out your paperwork at dropoff.

Take advantage of the option to lower the item's price on the second day of the sale.

Give yourself plenty of time to get through check-in. (And thank our amazing volunteers who make this happen.)
