— The Allegheny County Parks Department today announced that the Annual Ski Swap & Sale will be held at the Boyce Park Four Seasons Activity Center from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 23, and Sunday, October 24. The sale will include new and used items from shops and residents, such as skis, boots, poles, bindings, snowboards and clothing.
The Annual Ski Swap & Sale is an excellent way for residents to enjoy skiing and snowboarding without having to pay high costs to buy or replace equipment, especially for those with growing children. It also provides an opportunity for families to sell equipment that may have quickly outgrown children.
Proceeds from the sale benefit the Boyce Park Ski Patrol and assist it in purchasing necessary equipment and first-aid supplies. Only cash and personal checks with proper identification will be accepted. The ski patrol does not warrant any items and cannot accept any returns. All sales are final.
Those interested in selling equipment at the event must bring their items and register between 2:00 and 7:00 p.m. on Friday, October 22, at the Four Seasons Activity Center. This is the only opportunity to register to sell equipment. Sellers may register 20 items for a $5 fee. The ski patrol will accept only current equipment and reserves the right to refuse any item for sale.
Sellers set their own prices, and the ski patrol will not change prices during the event. Sellers must return in person to obtain their profits and any unused items at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 24. Any items not retrieved by sellers on Sunday are considered to be donated. The Boyce Park Ski Patrol will keep 15 percent of all sales.
The Annual Boyce Park Ski Swap & Sale has taken place for more than 35 years.
