HOW SHOULD I PRICE MY GEAR?
Ski swap prices need to be pretty cheap. Think about pricing this way: ski shops will sell equipment at 40-60% off normal retail prices during the early fall and late spring sales. Used equipment must be priced much lower. With the Flash Consign Online Registry organizers are able to track average sales prices for equipment. These are good guidelines to follow when deciding where to price your equipment.
Average Sales Price for Equipment:
SKIS- Adult Alpine- Average $129, Junior Alpine- $72, Backcountry Skis- $159.11, Telemark Skis- $119.89, Adult Skate- $122, Adult Classic X/C- $86, Junior Skate- $40, Junior Classic X/C- $40
BOOTS Most used Alpine boots Do Not Sell. Price them low. Nordic boots sell. Average sale prices: Adult Alpine/Boots- $73.80, Junior Alpine/Boots- $35.65, Alpine XC/Boots- $38.57, Junior XC/Boots- $23, Snowboard Boots- $36, Telemark Boots- $31.25.
POLES Alpine Poles $12 average, Nordic poles $28.
KIDS GEAR Easy to sell, always in high demand. Price it low. Kids packages at ski shops are relatively inexpensive. We run out of kids gear first. There is a big demand for kids skis, boots, and poles.

HOW DO I PREPARE MY EQUIPMENT FOR SALE?
Preparing your equipment at home will give you a chance to examine your equipment and to decide whether various items are worth selling or should they rather be considered “used up” and discarded.
ALL BINDINGS ARE CHECKED FOR CURRENT DIN CODES AND MAY BE REJECTED AT THE ENTRY. CODES CAN BE FOUND ONLINE SOMETIME IN OCTOBER.
Before bringing your gear to BIG SKY HIGH SCHOOL for check-in,
If you item comes with small parts, you are encourages to put them in a ziplock bag, put a tag on that, give it to the fair, and put a note on your item to collect the package at check-out.
If the ski swap organizer believes your equipment is no longer safe or not suitable for resale the organizer may refuse to consign the equipment.
HOW TO CONSIGN AT HOME?
Prepare your equipment at home as much as possible before the sale. Ten minutes work at home will save you 30 minutes at sale check in.
