Alaska’s largest ski and winter sports gear swap will be held on Saturday October 20th at the UAA Alaska Airlines Sports Center from noon to 5 pm. The public is encouraged to register any gently used winter sports gear at www.akskiswap.com.

“This event has been held annually for over 40 years,” said UAA ski coach Andrew Kastning. “It’s a huge help to local families to keep sports like Alpine and Nordic skiing affordable.” Aside from racks of skis and boots are fat tire bikes, hockey gear, and winter sports clothing.

Vendors this year include Black Diamond, Blue and Gold Board Shop, Powder Hound Ski Shop, Ski AK and more. The AK Ski Swap is a community service provided by the Alyeska Ski Club and the UAA Ski Team. Registered gear can be dropped off Friday evening, Oct 19th between 5 pm and 9 pm or the morning of the sale on Oct 20th between 8:30 and 10:30 am. The sale on Saturday, October 20th begins at 12 pm.
