Alaska Ski Swap set for Nov. 5

The Alyeska Ski Club and the University of Alaska Anchorage Ski Team present the annual Alaska Ski Swap Nov. 5 at the West Anchorage High School gymnasium.

The annual swap brings together bargain hunters eager to score a good deal and sellers hoping to recoup some money on their gently used equipment. The swap generates more than $100,000 per year, with 70 percent of each sale retained by sellers and 30 percent donated to support youth skiing in Southcentral Alaska. Equipment that has the right sticker price and is in the best condition sells fast.

The event opens on Nov. 5. Sellers can bring in modern, good-quality equipment between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. The official swap takes place from noon to 5 p.m. On Sunday, sellers can claim their checks and any unsold items between 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
