 Fair History

SnowBowl and Marshall ski patrols realized that young-sters would be learning to ski each year with ill-fitting, hand-me-down equipment. 

They held the first ski swap in 1968 in the basement of a bank. The swap grew and moved to the fairgrounds, moved to Adams Center and now is held at Big Sky High School and due to Covid-19 is back at the fairgrounds.

2018 marked the 50th annniversary sale. Our mission is promoting family outside recreation of skiing, boarding and other outdoor winter sports.

  • 1. Every item must have a tag. (each boot, pole, outfit in case one gets separated from the item)(That means print two labels for skits, boots, poles, two piece outfits, etc.)
  • 2. Print your tags on sturdy material, not printer paper unless backed by duct or packing tape.
  • 3. Securely attach the tags using safety pins, zip ties, wire, etc.
  • 4. Think about the tag location. Might some use it as a zipper pull and tear it off, is it in a location that is hard to find? Suggestions:
    • ​​a. pocket zippers.​
      b. brand or size label

  • 5. Attach the tag to the item itself, not to wrappers or boxes. New items like skis that are wrapped will be opened up by buyers to have a look and your tag will be lost.
  • ​6. Small items should be placed in a heavy duty zip lock so the items are visible but not a temptation to be opened. Tape the bag shut, put one tag inside and attach one to the outside.
