Consignment drop off for Okemo Ski and Snowboard Swap

Nov. 18-20 -The annual Ski and Snowboard Swap at Okemo Mountain School will take place this weekend! It's the place to gear up for the winter with new and used equipment at great prices. Skiers and snowboarders will find everything they need to make the most out of the snowy season: skis, snowboards, boots, bindings, helmets, goggles, outerwear and more. Proceeds benefit the Okemo Mountain School, in Ludlow, Vt.

The Swap takes place in the Clock Tower Base Lodge at Okemo Mountain Resort. The sale runs from 4-7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18 (3-4 p.m. are preview hour); 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19; and 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 20.  $5 admission, free for Okemo employees.

Anyone interested in parting with gear can sell it on consignment. (Please no equipment older than 7 years.) Twenty-five percent of the selling price goes to Okemo Mountain School and the remainder is mailed to the seller about 3 weeks after the Swap. Consignment items will only be accepted at Okemo's First Aid Building (in the Clock Tower Base Area) on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 12-13, and Wednesday, Nov. 16 from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
