Annual Ski Swap

by Scotia XC Ski Club

The SCOTIA XC Ski Swap will take place on:

  • Saturday, November 20th from 11:00am – 1:00pm at The Trail Shop on Quinpool Rd. in Halifax.

This is a terrific opportunity to sell your old ski equipment, buy some gently used gear, and to help new skiers get started. We’re anticipating a significant increase in interest in cross country skiing this winter – “the original winter social distancing sport” and many new skiers will be looking for equipment, so please consider selling some of your old gear to help a new skier get started. Ike Whitehead will be giving waxing demonstrations to help you get your skis ready for the season.

Please note that COVID-19 precautions will apply. All equipment sellers and buyers must wear a mask while inside The Trail Shop.

The club will sell all equipment on consignment and take a 15% commission to help support the club’s activities.
