What kind of Payment do you accept?
Keep in mind, we must charge tax on ‘white tag’ items that are being sold by our participating retailers.  Please don’t give our cashiers a hard time....... (they don’t make up the rules!)

What do I need to know?

To help maintain security, we DO NOT allow any backpacks, large purses or bulky jackets/ski clothing to be worn into the SWAP. Please leave these items at home. If you bring these items, you will be asked to leave them at the door.  Items left at the door are the sole responsibility of the owner.

Our security staff reserve the right to check all items that are leaving the building.  You can fully expect security to be doing their jobs, please respect them.

I have equipment to sell.  What do I do?
Bring your equipment to the Vernon Recreation Centre Auditorium,  Friday October 25th from 3:30pm until 7:00pm.

Does it cost anything to consign my equipment?
YES!  There is a $2.00 consignment ticket that must be purchased for each item that you want sold. REMEMBER: we only accept CASH to purchase the consignment tickets. If your equipment sells, we will collect a 20% commission on the sale price of the item.

What type of equipment can I bring?
We accept alpine and cross country skis, snowboards, boots and poles. We  DO NOT accept equipment that has been poorly maintained or is a potential safety hazard.  Helmets and older model straight (alpine) skis are not accepted . Our staff retain the right to refuse any equipment.

How do I know if my equipment has sold?
Pay-out runs from 12:30pm until 3:30pm on Saturday October 26th. Check back at the auditorium any time after 12:30 to see if your equipment has sold. If your item has sold, we will pay-out the value of the equipment less the 20% commission.

What if it doesn't sell?
You can simply pick up your equipment any time before 3:30PM on Saturday.

I missed the pay out time on Saturday and didn't get back to check for my equipment. Now what?
Equipment that is left behind on Saturday becomes the property of the Vernon Ski Club. DON'T MISS THE PAY-OUT TIME!

But it SOLD and you owe me my money! DON'T MISS THE PAYOUT TIME!
This is a fundraiser for a volunteer-led us out by coming during the pay-out time.

I can't find my equipment on the floor and there is no record of the sale and appears to have gone missing. Now what?
We have numerous security people on-site that work hard to ensure that equipment doesn't go missing, however we cannot be held responsible for stolen equipment. You can minimize your risk by ensuring that your items are securely tagged when you check them in.

I want to volunteer!

GREAT! Please email and we will find you a spot.

Any final hints?
Great deals can be found at the ski swap, but everyone wants in on the action. EXPECT the swap to be busy!

PLEASE be patient and show the volunteers respect. They are working hard to make this a great community event.
