The annual Vail Ski & Snowboard Swap is back for its 50th year! Ski & Snowboard Club Vail’s annual swap is the best place to find all you need for the upcoming winter. Products include everything from alpine, snowboard, telemark and nordic equipment. All ranges of winter clothing and accessories such as helmets, gloves and goggles will also be available for purchase. Vendors will have their best selection of new and used products at this year's swap. Used gear from the general public will be available at great prices.

A percentage of the sales from the Swap benefit Ski & Snowboard Club Vail, which allows SSCV to continue its mission to inspire character growth and excellence and its vision to stand as both a leading youth development organization and the premier ski and snowboard competition program in the world.
