Tips, Tricks and Frequently Asked Questions 

How does this work? 

-Customers bring in equipment for sale. A triplicate ticket form is filled out for each item. One slip is attached to the item, one slip is kept by the swap accounting staff, and one slip is given to the customer.

– If you have multiple items to sell, please make sure you bring them all in at once before you start filling out tickets AND make sure the tickets you are given are in sequential order. It makes checkout on Sunday MUCH more efficient.

– Sale will open at 7 pm on Friday night and close at 4 pm on Saturday afternoon.

– Customers can pick up their items that didn’t sell between 4 – 5 on Saturday, October 25th or choose to donate their items.

– CBSF and CBN will mail the customer a check within two weeks of the ski swap. No customers will be reimbursed for sold items the day of the sale. CBSF and CBN will take 20% from each seller’s total.

What if I forget to show up on Saturday to pick up my equipment?

– CBSF and CBN will donate all items that are not picked up by 5pm on Saturday, October 25th.

What is the 20% used for?

– The 20% will be applied towards the CBSF scholarship funds and Crested Butte Nordic’s annual expenses.

Can someone else drop off/pick up my equipment?

-Yes, but please make sure that whomever returns to pick up the equipment on Saturday has the appropriate ticket(s).


Is there any new equipment or is it all used?

– There will be a mix of new and used. Flatiron, Colorado Freeskier and Gene Taylor’s will be selling discounted hard and soft goods.

What kind of equipment is accepted?

-Alpine, nordic, randonee, and backcountry skis, boots, bindings and poles, snowboards and boots, ski/board/boot bags, helmets, googles, gloves, hats, coats, and other outerwear. We will only accept quality equipment that is in good condition. We will deny any items that are too old or in poor shape.

Please make sure any loose items are attached – for snowboard bindings, this might mean combining items into a heavy-duty Ziploc bag or tying them together so they are not separated. Please refrain from bringing items in boxes (unless you attach them to the box).

Fun at the 4th July

Thank you to all our supporters, families and kids for joining CBSF for our 4th July float! Our Olympic themed float won the 2nd place prize for best float during the 4th July parade!

We had a huge crew of kids, families, and community members come out and walk the parade route with us and we could not have been more excited to have everyone join us. Thanks for all of the support!
