The Hoofers Ski and Snowboard Club is proud to announce our 52nd Annual Resale Ski and Snowboard Swap, to be held on Saturday, December 3rd and Sunday December 4th at Union South. 1308 W. Dayton St. For parking, see information below.  


Resale is the largest ski swap of its kind in the Midwest and Hoofers has been running it for 53 years now! Come enjoy great deals on winter sports gear such as downhill and cross-country skis, snowboards, apparel and more at significantly discounted prices from both local and national vendors, as well as new and slightly used gear from the community. Make the upcoming winter months active and full of fun with new or new-to-you equipment.

Hoofers Resale is the largest sale of its kind in the Midwest, and after 52 years it has only grown! Vendors and members of the community bring in significantly discounted skis, snowboards, apparel and more to create one amazing sale. Proceeds from the sale help fund Hoofers Nordic, Alpine, and Freestyle teams, as well as Hoofers discounted trips. It also pays for annual free ski trips for local non-profit groups such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters.

A list of frequently asked questions can be found here!


Here is the updated list of all of the items sold so far during the resale! Sold Items

If you are selling your own new or used equipment you can drop it off at

and let Hoofers sell it for you! Public drop off times are:

  • Thursday, December 1st, 5pm-9pm 
  • Friday, December 2nd, 9am-8pm

All you have to do is drop off your equipment and let our on-site salespeople sell it for you over the weekend. Hoofer’s Ski and Snowboard Club will take 17% of the sale. If you are unsure of how to price your items, volunteers at the public drop off can offer suggestions. You will be able to track the sale of your items online. More information will be provided when you drop off your gear.

A maximum of 10 items are accepted per person. Unfortunately, we cannot accept used helmets, straight alpine skis and any skis with non-indemnified bindings which can be found    here. Additionally, non-rigid snowboards, snowboards with step in bindings, cross-country skis with 3-pin or 75mm bindings as well as cross-country boots that fit the 3-pin binding, and alpine boots that are more than eighteen years old and no longer meet current standards for sole shape and slipperiness will not be accepted. All apparel must be new with tags attached or dry cleaned within the last 6 months, presented with dry cleaning receipt.

If your items do not sell you must pick them up during the times listed below in the Alumni Room on the 2nd floor of Union South. If you do not, they become the property of Hoofers Ski and Snowboard Club. Hoofers cannot make exceptions to this rule.
