Ski, snowboard swaps go virtual for Pico and Okemo

Pico Ski Club

Oct. 2-5 —KILLINGTON—The 2020 Pico Ski Club’s annual ski & snowboard swap and sale will be held virtually this year, from Oct. 2-5. To receive an email notification when the online swap andsale goes live and to shop Oct 2-5, visit picoskiclub.myshopify.com.

The decision was made to shift from in-person to online, due to the continued effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, including restricted travel and current limits on large gatherings. This annual event benefits the Pico Ski Club and its racing programs that train more than 150 participants, ages 6 and up. It was important to the PSC Board and the swap committee to continue to provide a (virtual) venue for the community to sell and purchase equipment at affordable prices. New and used skis, snowboards, clothing, snowshoes and equipment for kids and adults—from the recreational snow sports enthusiast to the seasoned racer—will be available through the secure online marketplace during the sale period. Credit cards and PayPal accepted. Buyers must agree to pick up their purchases between Oct. 11 and 12 outside of the Pico Ski Club building at Pico Mountain. Local delivery for a fee will also be available. The pick-up process will remain as contactless as possible with consignors and buyers remaining in their cars. Masks are required.

Okemo Mountain School

LUDLOW—Due to Covid-19, Okemo Mountain School’s annual ski & snowboard swap will convert from an in-person event to an entirely-virtual experience this year. The swap will still be the place to gear up for the winter ahead with new and used gear at great prices. The OMS ski & snowboard swap is accepting donations of skis, snowboards, and competition gear to sell through its online platform. All proceeds will benefit the Okemo Mountain School. The swap donation drop-off and purchase pick-up will take place at Okemo Mountain School on Main Street in Ludlow, and the sale will take place online.
OMS will be accepting skis and snowboards, no more than five years old, and competition-specific gear for donation only; there will not be any consignment this year. Due to the nature of the virtual sale, only skis, snowboards, and competition-specific gear such as GS suits, shin guards, back protectors, etc., will be accepted. To donate items, an online form must be filled out completely.  Upon receipt, OMS staff will confirm the donation and set up a drop off time at OMS via email. Due to Covid-19 protocol, items cannot be dropped-off to OMS without an appointment and a prior approved online submission.

Beginning Nov. 2, the online store on the OMS website will be live. All items will be prepaid through the online store and received by pickup with an appointment only. The sale will run until Nov. 27 and all sales are final.

Donation Drop-of Dates: Sept. 14 – Oct. 19, by appointment only.

Online sale dates: Nov. 2 – Nov. 27 with pick-up, by appointment only.
