The Hoofers Ski and Snowboard Club is proud to announce our 52nd Annual Resale Ski and Snowboard Swap, to be held on Saturday, December 5 and Sunday, December 6 at Union South.
Come enjoy great deals on winter sports gear such as downhill and cross-country skis, snowboards, apparel, and more at significantly discounted prices from both local and national vendors, as well as new and slightly used gear from the community. Make the upcoming winter months active and full of fun with new or new-to-you equipment.
Hoofers Resale is the largest sale of its kind in the Midwest, and after 51 years it has only grown! Vendors and members of the community bring in significantly discounted skis, snowboards, apparel, and more to create one amazing sale. Proceeds from the sale help fund Hoofers Nordic, Alpine, and Freestyle teams, as well as Hoofers discounted trips. It also pays for annual free ski trips for local non-profit groups such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters.
Selling Your Equipment
If you are selling your own new or used equipment, you can drop them off at Agriculture and Industry Room, 3rd Floor, Union South and let Hoofers sell it for you! Public drop off times are:
- Thursday, December 3, 6pm-9pm
- Friday, December 4, 9am-9pm
Hoofers Ski and Snowboard Club will take 17% of the sale. If you are unsure of how to price your items, volunteers at the public drop-off can offer suggestions. You will be able to track the sale of your items online. More information will be provided when you drop off your gear.
A maximum of 10 items are accepted per person. Unfortunately, we cannot accept used helmets, straight alpine skis, or cross-country skis with 3-pin or 75mm bindings. All apparel must be new with tags attached or dry cleaned within the last six months, presented with a dry cleaning receipt.
If your items do not sell you must pick them up during the times listed below. If you do not, they become the property of Hoofers Ski and Snowboard Club. Hoofers cannot make exceptions to this rule.
- Sunday, December 6, 6pm-9pm
- Monday, December 7, 11:30am-9pm

Resale is a great place to pick up winter gear for everyone. Prepare yourself by bringing a list with their height, weight, and boot/shoe size (preferably in European sizing as well as standard sizing).
