Oct 11, 2016


The annual cross-country ski swap on October 22, 2016, has been dialled up this year to include a garage sale format to help individuals sell any sports and recreation gear, in addition to their cross-country ski gear.  Gather up all those soccer shoes, hockey skates, camping gear, and of course cross-country ski gear and give the a second life.  All funds raised from this event will go to support the CNSC Racers waxing costs and coach travel/lodging for competitions. 

Most gear will be sold outside, so please be sure to dress for the occasion.  To help make this a fun and worthy event for shoppers, we have invited corporate vendors to set up a table or tent to sell sports and recreation gear.


Individual vendors can rent a lot to sell their used gear in garage sale format for $20.  You will not drop your gear off the night before the sale, as you will bring it with you on the morning of the sale and sell it yourself.  This will allow you to set your own price, and negotiate the successful sale of your gear.  Set up will be from 7:00 am to 8:45 am on Saturday.  For anyone selling more than $100 worth of gear, this new format is less costly than the previous format. If you intend to sell both cross-country ski gear and other sporting gear, you will need two people – one to sell your cross-country ski gear and one to sell other sporting gear.  All gear should be clearly priced before arriving for set-up.  Donations of cross-country ski gear will gratefully accepted during the set-up period. 


There will be a specific area where used cross-country ski gear will be sold, so as to make it efficient for cross-country ski buyers. There will be a sizing station to help families determine the correct size of gear to purchase and some knowledgeable people available to help buyers select the right ski gear.  You will purchase gear from vendors directly, so it is best to come prepared for cash transactions.  The event will run from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm at Otway Nordic Centre.

If you would like to book a vendor spot, please contact us at cnscskiswap@gmail.com.  If you have any questions, please call Sally at 250-962-7115 or Wendy at 250-561-2171.  We hope you will come out and support this fun event.

See you at Otway
