It's that time of year again! Cheap deals on last years ubah gear! Or, as others would describe it, the only possible way to keep 3 growing kids on the snow. The intent of this thread is to track ski swaps and tent sales which may be of interested. Please note, by 'tent sale' we're not talking about a '10% off' sale. On the other hand, significant sales may be considered.

If you know of any additional swaps/sales, or have any clarifications on any listed below, feel free to respond and I will keep this post up to date.

I will move the swaps which have passed by the to bottom of the list, so it's easier to see which swaps are coming up.

Feel free to begin submitting information people already know about now, I will compile a list of what I can gleam from the interwebz this week, and start to populate based on dates and times.

And thanks to the couple of people who complained that last years ski swap sticky sucked, since I wasn't here to maintain it. X-D

Half way thru at least one of my old list. I've contacted most of the 'Need Info' where I could find contact information from last years ski swap.

Going to add all of the Potters Brothers sales from NY, and continue thru the list this evening.

Many listed and updated. Need more information on many I cannot find any information online for. Keep any additional ones coming, the more comprehensive this list is, the better. :-D

Yeah, this looks amazing, great job! Was just reading the Wachusett email and coming to post about it and realized it's already covered here!

That looks confusing. Drop off the equipment at Boston Ski & Tennis, but the sale is at Ski Ward?

Adding it, and making a note that it's race gear for the most part.

Yeah, not sure why they are doing that other than the ski shop doesn't want to send staff over to Ski Ward just to take in swap items. Seems like there's a very small window for all of this.
