10/26/12 – Jackson Hole Ski Club Annual Ski Swap Strategery

Written By: Kevin Wittig @kevinswittig on Twitter

Dive into the garage and take inventory. Options over the next month to prepare for the winter season will probably include one of the following: buying gear at retail price, finding a steal online, or uncovering hidden gems at a discount. If you’re like me and happen to be relying on the latter, then I’ll see you in line on Saturday morning at the Annual Ski Swap sponsored by the Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club.

Each year around Halloween, Jackson’s oldest non-profit takes over Heritage Arena at the Teton County fairgrounds to welcome skiers and riders for the largest ski swap in the Greater Teton Region. From last seasons’ fat skis to home made split boards, you’ll come across a bit of everything at the ski swap. Gloves, hats, under layers, jackets… you name it, you’ll find it – and most likely at a price even ski bums can afford.


  • Prepare a Plan of Attack – As you run towards the ski rack, someone else is looking for that Patagonia jacket you need. It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the amount of gear at your finger tips. Think about what you really need. If you could walk away with one thing, what would it be?
  • Get Your Butt Out of Bed – Trying to pick up a pair of last years Coombacks, or a 162 splitboard? Don’t get wasted tonight and sleep in. You’ll lose.
  • Offset Your Expenditure – Come on, are you ever gonna use those tele’s you bought two years ago, or slay pow in the same jacket you’ve worn for the last three seasons. Now’s the time to sell!
